Diaper Rash Natural Treatments

Diaper rash - anyone who has a baby has probably seen at least occasional bouts. The baby's bottom develops a rash when left unchanged for a period of time. Some outbreaks last only a day or two, others last for long periods, getting worse. Sometimes babies don't seem to be bothered by the rash, while at other times they cry with pain.

Symptoms

Diaper rash may show up as red patches in the genital area of a baby. There may also be small red dots or large welts. They may develop blisters or bleeding cracks in severe cases. The rash may or may not cause pain, depending on how severe the irritation is.

Causes

Diaper rash has many causes, including prolonged moisture in the diaper area, exposure to feces or urine, allergic reactions to different foods, diarrhea, chafing, and irritation of the skin due to chemicals or fabric. Chemicals can be found in disposable diapers and in the detergents used to clean cloth diapers.

Cautions

Severe cases may open up the skin for infection. If diaper rash does not go away, gets worse or there is another skin irritation as well, see your doctor.
