Diaper Rash Menu

Proper care of skin is helpful in dealing with the problem of diaper rash. Following are some treatments for diaper rash:

Self Care

•  Change diaper at regular intervals to avoid the exposure of the infant's skin to moisture.

•  Wash the diaper area of baby with a mild soap so that it can get cleaned properly and make it free from bacteria and fungus.

•  Avoid any rough scrubbing on the diaper region of baby because it can cause irritation on kid's skin. After properly cleaning infant's skin allow it to dry in air so that moisture can get absorbed by the air.

•  There are some food stuffs that can worsen the case of diaper rash. So do not give these food stuffs to your baby if he is suffering from this problem.

•  If rashes on the diaper region of baby are because of some allergies then avoid use of soaps as it contains caustic soda that can cause more irritation in a rash.

Medical Treatments

•  If the child is suffering from Candida infection in the diaper region then doctors recommend antifungal creams and medicines.

•  If the child is suffering from bacterial infection in diaper area then dermatologists generally suggests antibiotics.

•  Mild steroid creams and ointment are suggested if rash occurs because of the fungus.

Side Effects of Diaper Rash Treatment

There are no side effects of self care diaper rash treatment as changing of diaper at regular intervals causes no harm to the infant's skin. But there are some side effects of the medical treatment. If you are using talcum powder to avoid diaper rash then you need to take care that it should be used in small quantity because your child can inhale the powder which can be very dangerous for his health. If you are using ointments and cortisone creams then use an optimum quantity of these creams because excess can give rise to more rashes. Hydrocortisone creams can make the skin of genital area thin. If antibiotics are used for the treatment of diaper rash then it can cause problems such as indigestion and some skin allergies to the infant.
