Even the most cared-for babies get nappy rash.....

At some time in their lives,  even the most cared-for babies can develop nappy rash.

 

Nappy rash is a common form of skin inflammation (dermatitis) that appears as a patchwork of bright red skin on your baby’s bottom.

What causes nappy rash?

When your baby wets their nappy, bacteria can react with urine to form ammonia. This can “burn” your baby’s delicate skin. If a nappy is also soiled, this causes a different chemical reaction that can irritate and damage the skin even more.

LEAVING A WET OR DIRTY NAPPY ON TOO LONG 

Lengthy exposure to urine or stool combined with friction from movement, can irritate a baby's sensitive skin

STARTING SOLID FOODS

Changes in your baby's diet may also increase the frequency of stools, which can lead to nappy rash

BACTERIAL OR YEAST (FUNGAL) INFECTION

A tight, closed nappy restricts fresh air & encourages warm moisture, the perfect breeding area for bacteria. These kinds of rashes are typically found in the creases of the skin

TEETHING

Cutting Teeth can often cause nappy rash. Visit Caldebaby.ie to learn more about teething

IRRITATION FROM A NEW PRODUCT

Your baby's skin may react to baby wipes, a new brand of nappies or the ingredients found in some baby lotions and oils

CHAFING OR RUBBING

Tight-fitting nappies or clothing that rubs against the skin can lead to a rash

What does nappy rash look like?

Your baby’s skin will appear red, sore, and may be irritated, chapped or swollen in places.  

 

Nappy rash can be isolated, with just a few prickly red spots in a small area, or more widespread with tender red bumps on your child’s inner thighs, particularly in skin folds and creases.

How do I prevent nappy rash?

Change your baby’s nappy as soon as it becomes wet or soiled
Wash the area carefully with damp cotton wool
Ensure the skin is completely dry (pat or air dry) – don’t rub
At every change, sprinkle a layer of Caldesene before putting on a fresh nappy. Being medicated, it attacks harmful bacteria and helps to prevent rashes
Don’t over-tighten nappy
Let baby’s bum “breathe” whenever possible - put a large towel under your baby’s bum and let them play and kick about without a nappy to allow their skin to “breathe”. Fresh air is perfect for his/her skin
