What is nappy rash?
Nappy rash is a common problem that causes red patches on a baby’s bottom.
It can be caused by your baby’s skin being in contact with urine or faeces for a long time, their nappy rubbing against their skin, not cleaning the nappy area or not changing the nappy often enough.
Certain soaps, detergents, bubble baths or alcohol-based baby wipes can also cause nappy rash.
How can I prevent nappy rash?
Most children get nappy rash at some point, and Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment is a great way to ease their discomfort.
However, there are some ways you can help to prevent their nappy rash in the first place.
We’d advise changing your child’s nappy regularly, and avoid leaving them in wet or dirty nappies for too long.
Bathe your baby every day and make sure that the whole nappy area is cleaned thoroughly yet gently with every nappy change.
How do I treat my baby’s nappy rash?
When your baby gets a nappy rash, make sure you’re changing wet or dirty nappies as soon as possible.
Clean the whole nappy area gently but thoroughly, wiping from front to back.
Use fragrance-free and alcohol-free baby wipes to clean your baby and dry them thoroughly without vigorous rubbing.
If your baby’s nappy rash doesn’t go away within 3 days, you can try a cream designed for nappy rash like Sudocrem, or ask a pharmacist or GP for advice.
What is the difference between a nappy rash and a skin infection?
If your baby’s nappy rash doesn’t go away or it gets worse, (it might develop into a bright red, moist rash with red or white pimples), this may be a sign of infection.
If you think your baby has an infection, it’s important to get it checked out by a healthcare professional who may recommend a cream or medicine.
Lots of babies develop rashes from time to time, but it’s important to know the difference between a minor irritation, like a nappy rash, and something that requires attention like an infection.
