Taking care of baby nappy rash

Nappy changes are a regular occurrence with a baby in the house, but a routine change can be a little surprising when you’re greeted by a sore, red bottom. But don’t worry, baby nappy rash is common. 

The main cause of nappy rash is wee and poo in contact with the skin in a nappy, which generates enzymes that can cause irritation… and the wetness can lead to inflammation,” explains paediatric dermatologist and mum-of-one Dr Kerstin. A cream for nappy rash, such as Baby Dove Rich Moisture Nappy Cream, can help. It neutralises skin’s pH, bringing immediate comfort, and provides a protective layer between the skin and soiled nappies.

Baby nappy rash is fairly easy to treat and should clear up within a week. If not, it’s best to talk to your doctor. Hopefully these tips from real parents will stop it from getting to that stage.
