Hello Anna, thanks for your question
Diaper rash is a condition that is often experienced by babies / children who use disposable diapers, which is inflammation of the skin due to constant contact with urine and feces. Although this condition is not dangerous, babies / children tend to be fussy and uncomfortable, and it is not uncommon for the baby / child to sleep disturbed.
The recommendations for dealing with this condition:
change diapers frequently, especially every baby / child defecating
Before putting on a new diaper, don't forget to wipe the genital area with clean water and dry it
It is better if your baby / child does not use diapers every now and then, the more often the baby's skin is exposed to air, the risk of diaper rash is reduced
choose a diaper that does not cause allergies or irritation to the skin
use a diaper that is the right size, but if the diaper rash has already occurred, you should wear a diaper one size larger during the healing period of the diaper rash
apply a cream or ointment containing dexpanthenol, which you can generally get over the counter at a pharmacy
Generally, diaper rash treatment does not require oral medication. If the complaint doesn't get better, it's a good idea to have your baby checked by a doctor.
Hopefully this is useful
