What causes diaper rash?
Primarily, prolonged and increased exposure to wetness against the skin. Other factors: the closed environment created by the diaper, chafing from friction/rubbing against diapers or skin folds, and skin’s prolonged contact with urine and/or feces.
What are the signs and symptoms of diaper rash?
Some or all of the following: pinkness/ redness wherever the diaper touches, dry or fluid-filled raised bumps, flaking, dryness or peeling/scaling of the skin, raised areas (or swelling), and chafing. Affected areas may be warm to the touch.
How can I treat diaper rash?
Keep the area clean and dry. Once you have finished cleaning your baby’s bottom, pat it dry (no rubbing), and try applying a thick layer of Desitin Maximum Strength. Just 1 application provides long-lasting overnight protection.
How does Zinc Oxide treat diaper rash?
Zinc Oxide forms a protective barrier between the skin and the diaper to reduce friction, block wetness from the skin, protect against the enzymes found in feces, and soothe irritated skin, allowing it to heal naturally.
How can I prevent diaper rash?
Keep baby’s skin clean and dry, let diaper area dry before reapplying diaper, and protect baby’s skin with a diaper rash treatment. Try Desitin Rapid Relief: It protects against diaper rash from the first use and works at the first hint of rash.
