Diaper Rash

Diaper rash is a skin irritation caused due to urine or feces irritating the skin where it is in direct contact with the soiled diaper. Leaving a baby in a wet or soiled diaper for too long can cause diaper rash, as can a bout of diarrhea. Sometimes the rash is a reaction to new foods in the diet. The diaper area will look red and sore, and baby may be irritable. If the rash becomes infected, it will be red, glistening appearance with pus-filled pimples and will be extremely sore, affecting the whole diaper area, including the skin creases around the groin.

Home Remedies
  • Wash and dry: Gently wash the diaper area with warm water and a soft cloth. Rinse thoroughly and dry completely.
  • Coconut oil: Apply coconut oil to the affected area.
  • Vaseline: Apply Vaseline.
Do's
  • Change baby’s diaper often to prevent irritation.
  • Wash fabric diapers with a non-allergenic laundry detergent and rinse well.
  • Leave diapers and incontinence briefs off as much as possible.
  • If the baby has started solid foods, introduce one new food at a time to see if anything causes a bout of diaper rash.
  • A balance of breast milk and semi-solid foods or formula would go a long way in controlling this rash.
Don’ts
  • Avoid using plastic pants until the rash is gone.
  • Don’t use perfumed skin products or baby wipes, which remove natural oils from the skin, leaving it more prone to dryness and cracking.
See Doctor
  • Rash is not clearing up after a week.
  • Pimples, blisters, open weeping sores, boils, or crusts develop in the diaper area.
  • A rash in the diaper area looks like a rash on other parts of the body.
