Added Information:Nappy rash
- a common skin disorder among babies. It is the inflammation of the skin as a result of a reaction to urine or faeces. It can be aggravated by a germ called candida, which commonly thrives in the inflamed skin.
What are the symptoms of nappy rash?
In its mildest form, the skin will be moist with a red, slightly rough and reddish appearance. Nappy rash can also cause burning and itching that can result in restlessness, irritability and sleep interruptions.
What Causes Nappy rash?
Nappy Rash is caused by prolonged contact with urine and faeces, along with chafing and heat. Skin exposed to wetness or moisture leads to softening of the skin making it more vulnerable to friction and local irritants.
How do I treat Nappy rash?
Nappy rash is a form of contact dermatitis and using a barrier cream as barrier protection is a good first step. Zinc Oxide is an excellent treatment and protectant. The nappy rash should respond within 24 hours and if it does not clear within 3 days, this implies a non responding secondary bacterial or fungal infection, and a healthcare professional should be consulted.
