Rashes In Inflamed 8 Month Babies?
Dear HealthReplies.com …
Hello, thanks for the question.
Inflammation of a baby's skin in an area covered by a diaper is commonly called a diaper rash, which arises due to constant contact with urine / urine and feces. Characterized by redness, dry skin, blisters and blisters on the buttocks, thighs and genitals. This diaper rash can occur up to 1 year old baby and can continue to recur as long as the baby uses diapers. Some factors that cause diaper rash include:
Prolonged exposure to urine and feces
As a result of using diapers that are too tight, causing friction and blisters
Irritation of baby products, such as soap, powder, detergents, or fabric softeners.
Sensitive skin, for example in infants with eczema or atopic dermatitis
Bacterial or fungal infections. Skin covered with diapers tends to be moist and warm, thereby increasing the possibility of bacteria and fungi growing.
The use of antibiotics, which cause natural bacteria that function to protect the skin's defenses, also dies, so diaper rash can arise due to fungal or other types of bacterial infections.
If the complaint has not improved or is getting worse, especially if the rash has spread to the outside of the diaper, accompanied by blisters, festering, fussy children, and fever should consult a dermatologist, the doctor will conduct an examination and provide treatment in accordance with the conditions and causes of complaints . To prevent and reduce rash complaints in infants, you should keep your baby's skin clean and dry, wash your hands before and after changing baby diapers, change the soiled diaper immediately and do it as often as possible, clean the skin covered with diapers, wait for the skin to dry completely before using a new diaper, try not to always use a diaper so that the baby's skin can be exposed to air, avoid using powder, wet tissues, or soap containing alcohol and fragrance in the genital area and buttocks, avoid using diapers that are too tight, and you should use diapers with one size larger during healing diaper rash.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
