TRIGGERS AND CAUSE

There are a number of causes to diaper rash. One of the main and most common cause is babies wearing a wet diaper for a long period of time and rubs against your baby’s skin.

Other causes to lookout for:

Prolonged exposure to stool/ feces (worsened when baby has diarrhea)
Composition of stool and frequencies of diapers change due to the introduction of solid foods. The condition of diapers, which is always warm and moist are inviting bacteria and yeast to proliferate.
Introducing new products to baby directly onto baby’ skin, (diapers, disposable wipes, baby oil, powder, lotion detergent & bleach for baby’s clothes)
Mum’s food intake for breast fed babies.
Skin sensitivities on babies.
Very tight fitting clothes or diapers causes rubbing and chafing of skin.

Apply anti-diaper rash cream or petroleum jelly afterwards, particularly between the legs, this is done to seal skin from wetness.
It is also important to change diapers frequently and make sure that your baby is always clean and dry!
You can also let the baby play naked in the comfort of your home and when you’re sure the rooms are not too cold (most air-conditioned rooms can be too cold for babies).

DO’S AND DON’T’S PREVENT FLARE UP
