Hello, Thank you for the question.
Reddish rashes on the baby's buttocks area can be caused by diaper rash. Diaper rash is an inflammatory reaction on the skin caused by irritated skin due to constant exposure to urine and feces. Reddened skin will occur around areas covered by diapers such as the groin, around the genitals, and buttocks. Apart from prolonged exposure to urine and stool, diaper rash can occur due to:
skin scraping with diapers
irritation due to the use of other products such as powder, soap, detergent
There are several steps you can take:
Immediately change dirty diapers as often as possible
Don't let the baby use diapers for too long
clean the diaper covered skin thoroughly with clean water, avoid using soap or wet wipes containing alcohol
dry the washed skin dry before using the diaper
make sure your baby uses the right size diaper, not too tight. However, if your baby is recovering from diaper rash, you should use a diaper with a larger size
use a cream / ointment to prevent diaper rash, usually containing zinc oxide
if you use cloth diapers, wash cloth diapers clean of detergents and avoid using clothes deodorizers
If the diaper rash does not appear to improve after taking the steps above, you should immediately bring your child to consult with a pediatrician. The doctor will carry out further tests before giving the appropriate treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
