Nappy rash is all part of being a baby so find out how to care for your little one’s bottom and watch that rash fade away…
Inflammation of the skin around your baby’s nappy area.
Your baby’s bottom and the creases of his thighs become red and inflamed.
It’s caused by prolonged contact with dirty nappies and their contents. It’s very common and almost all babies get it at some point, even if you change your baby’s nappy regularly. A barrier cream, such as Metanium or Sudocrem, will help protect your baby’s sensitive skin from nappy rash.
Your baby’s bottom may feel sore and if left untreated nappy rash can lead to an infection. An ointment, such as Timodine, which you can get from your doctor, will help soothe any discomfort.
Nappy rash shouldn’t last more than a few days if you treat it.
