A diaper rash is very uncomfortable for baby. It’s the result of irritation, usually caused by prolonged exposure to a moist diaper with urine or soiled with stool. Chafing from tight-fitting diapers or clothing or contact with an irritating substance in certain disposable wipes or diapers, detergents or other laundry products, soaps, or lotions may also produce a rash in the diaper area.
A Diaper Rash May Appear:
Bright red rash that gets bigger
Fiery red and scaly areas on the scrotum and penis in boys
Red or scaly areas on the labia and vagina in girls
Pimples, blisters, ulcers, large bumps, or pus-filled sores
Smaller red patches (called satellite lesions) that grow and blend in with the other patches
Tyler is glad there are sooo many natural remedies for diaper rash.
Is a diaper rash cream the only or even the best option? Are there natural treatments, which can be more effective than store bought remedies?
