Diaper Rash

  • This is an incredibly common condition when skin is inflamed by diaper contents.

  • Time with diaper off and barrier creams are the most important considerations.

  • Barrier creams prevent the skin from being affected by the liquid or solid contents of a dirty diaper. They become a literal BARRIER or block against the irritating substances. 

  • Change diaper frequently!  Do not let baby sit in a wet or soiled diaper for long.  Every second counts!

  • My favorite barrier creams contain products like ointments, beeswax or zinc oxide.  Use them if the skin seems pink, red, sore or inflamed or before bed.
