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 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 Daily Defense: It protects against diaper rash from the first use and works at the first hint of rash.
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 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.
Check baby’s diaper at least every 2 hours and change immediately if urine or feces is present. At every change, clean with mild wipes or warm water, let air dry, and apply DESITIN Daily Defense before re-diapering. DESITIN Daily Defense is your everyday partner in protecting against diaper rash.
Be extra gentle when cleaning red, irritated skin (patting, not wiping). Leave existing diaper cream in place, and add a thick layer of DESITIN Maximum Strength to affected areas. DESITIN Maximum Strength helps heal and soothe diaper rash discomfort!
DESITIN Rapid Relief Cream helps provide overnight relief of diaper rash. In a clinical study, 90 percent of babies with diaper rash had noticeable relief within 12 hours of the use of DESITIN Rapid Relief Cream.
DESITIN Rapid Relief Cream is a smooth and creamy diaper rash treatment that contains zinc oxide, known to block moisture from baby's skin. The barrier cream forms a protective layer on your baby's skin to soothe and relieve diaper rash discomfort, providing relief from the very first use. In fact, over 88 percent of moms agree that nothing works faster. This hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested formula goes on smoothly and wipes off easily, protecting against and treating diaper rash for relief your baby can feel.
Diaper rash is a common and easily treatable part of a baby's life. Trusted by more pediatricians and moms than any other brand, DESITIN cream creates a barrier to relieve the discomfort of diaper rash on contact.
Three important steps can help bring diaper rash under control - gentle cleansing, ensuring the skin is dry, and protecting the skin from further irritation.
Always keep your baby's skin as clean and dry as possible. That means changing wet or soiled diapers right away. Since you may not always know when your baby needs a change, check the diaper at least every two hours. In newborns or babies with diaper rash and/or diarrhea, you will need to check even more frequently.
Whether you use wipes or a washcloth, it's important to avoid further irritating damaged skin. Use your wipe or washcloth to gently pat skin, being careful not to rub.
Once you have finished cleaning your baby's bottom, pat it dry (no rubbing!) before applying a thick barrier of protection. Or, better yet, allow your baby to go without a diaper for a little while to let her bottom air dry and then apply a thick barrier of protection when you do re-diaper.
Applying a barrier ointment or paste protects the skin from further injury. It will also help prevent friction from the diaper. Apply a thick layer of a zinc oxide diaper rash treatment, such as DESITIN Maximum Strength Original Paste or DESITIN Rapid Relief Cream, at each diaper change to soothe and protect your baby's irritated skin.
Using your fingers, apply a thick layer to the entire diaper area, as though you were frosting a cake. Try to touch baby's irritated skin as little as possible. Be generous in applying DESITIN products. DESITIN products are safe when used as directed and may be used at every diaper change to help treat and prevent diaper rash.
