Re: Causes & Prevention of Nappy or Diaper Rashes Babies!!!!!!

Prevention:

Keep your baby’s diaper clean and dry always.

Change the diaper immediately as it is wet and if possible leave your baby without diaper for some time every day so that the skin gets dried easily.

Attend your baby few minutes after he sleeps because infants usually urinate just as they fell asleep and if you change the diaper immediately it will help him sleep well and for a long time too.

Use plain warm water and wipe the skin of your baby in and around nappy at least twice daily.

Avoid scented soaps to wash diapers.

Don't use plastic pants or diapers with plastic borders.

After wiping or bathing pat dry the affected area.

Avoid scrubbing as this might irritate and cause discomfort to your baby.

Change the soap, diaper brand or wipes if the rash continue

Tips for Buying Baby Diapers
Cloth or Disposable Diapers:

First we should decide whether we want cloth diaper or diposable ones.
in some situations we need disposable ones. so it is better to keep atleast one disposable diapers.
Generally disposable ones are little costlier than the cloth diapers.

Also the size is also should be concerned.

Stocking Baby Diapers:

Dont keep the diapers in stock, bcoz baby will be growing fast..
Diapers are available in different sizes and make sure you have at least one pack bigger than the present size.

Environmental Friendly Diapers:

Check out whether the diapers are environmental friendly.

Checking Size of Diapers:

Check the size of the diaper before buying. Some babies do not fit in regular size diapers made for newborns.

Re: Causes & Prevention of Nappy or Diaper Rashes Babies!!!!!!


Types of diaper Rashes:

Chafing dermatitis (diaper chafing):

Most common form of diaper rash, which can make the genital area and folds of the thighs & buttocks appear red and puffy.
Diaper chafing or the baby being in a wet and dirty diaper for too much time causes this type of rash.
This type of rash generally comes and goes, causing little discomfort as long as it’s not complicated by a secondary infection.



Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema):

This type of rash shows up as red scaly patches on the legs and in the groin area.
This rash may turn up in other parts of the body first while spreading to the diaper area between 6 and 12 months of age.
Atopic dermatitis can be caused by many things including allergens, irritants, environmental and hereditary factors.

Re: Causes & Prevention of Nappy or Diaper Rashes Babies!!!!!!

Candidal dermatitis (yeast infection):

This type of rash is usually tender and painful, appearing in the folds of the baby’s genitals, legs and the creases between the abdomen and thighs.
This rash will start as small red spots that become more numerous and then form together as a raised bright red rash with distinct edges.
The most common cause of this type of rash is a baby taking antibiotics.



Perianal dermatitis:

This type of rash appears as a bright to dark redness around the anus.
The stools of bottle fed babies being more alkaline than normal are sometimes the cause it.
This rash will usually not appear with breast fed babies until solid foods are introduced.

Re: Causes & Prevention of Nappy or Diaper Rashes Babies!!!!!!

Seborrheic dermatitis (cradle cap):

This rash will appear as a deep red rash that is rough, raised and often has yellowish scales.
This type of rash usually starts on the scalp as cradle cap, although it can sometimes begin in the diaper region and then its spreads upward.
This rash is usually caused by overactive oil glands in the skin.


Impetigo:

This type of rash can appear as yellow-brown crusty patches or pus filled pimples or blisters, which is usually accompanied by a lot of surrounding redness.
This rash can cover the buttocks, lower abdomen, anus, umbilical cord, and thighs and then spread to other parts of the body.
Impetigo is caused by bacteria.
If you think your baby’s rash is a bacterial infection, be sure and notify your doctor immediately.
Your doctor will most likely prescribe a topical or oral antibiotic.

Tidemark dermatitis:

This rash is an irritation that occurs from the edges or bindings of a diaper rubbing against the skin.


Intertrigo:

This rash will appear as a reddened area, which occurs as a result of skin rubbing on skin.
It is usually found in the folds between the thighs and abdomen and sometimes in the armpits.
