No matter how careful you are, your little one will probably get diaper rash at some point. Most babies do. So, plan ahead. Learn how to treat diaper rash and prevent flare-ups. Your baby's little bottom will thank you!
 
Causes of Diaper Rash:
  • Leaving a wet or dirty diaper on too long
  • Rubbing or chafing against the diaper itself
  • Yeast infection
  • Bacterial infection
  • Allergic reaction to diaper
A harmless rash that's often seen on a baby's scalp, called cradle cap, can also show up on his bottom. Doctors call it seborrheic dermatitis. It causes red, scaly, waxy patches that eventually go away without treatment. You might notice it on other parts of your baby's body, too.
 
Babies get a diaper rash more often when they:
  • Get older -- especially between 9 and 12 months old
  • Sleep in poopy diapers
  • Have diarrhea
  • Start eating solid foods
  • Are taking antibiotics, or if you take antibiotics and are nursing
Tips to Treat a Diaper Rash:
  • Wash your hands before and after every diaper change.
  • Check your baby's diaper often and change it as soon as it becomes wet or soiled.
  • Use plain water. When you need to get poop off your baby's skin, use a mild cleanser.
  • Gently pat the area clean and dry, rather than rubbing.
  • If you use wipes, choose mild ones. Try to avoid those with fragrances or alcohol. Or use a clean, soft washcloth.
  • Be sure the area is completely clean and dry before putting on a fresh diaper.
