Baby Talk: All about Diaper Rash
Our babies are sensitive to everything. Even if we just place them in their rooms most of the time, they can still get allergies for no particular reasons. They can be sensitive to the cloth or material used in their mattress. Most of the time, they get allergies from their diapers. But we cannot easily spot the cause of such rash and allergies until we look closely at the red spot.
At Palms Pharmacy, an Affordable Pharmacy in Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, we value your child’s health. We want them to experience a fun and carefree time. But they will not get such luxury if they are constantly irritated with the rash on their sensitive areas. Today, on the blog, we will discuss some of the causes of diaper rash and how to treat them.
What is a diaper rash?
These are rashes or constant itchiness experienced by the child when wearing diapers. It does not necessarily pertain to any brand or type of material used in the diaper. Sometimes, rashes can be acquired when we cannot change their diapers on time. Usually, it is the oil or the liquid accumulated in the diaper that causes the irritation and the swelling in the sensitive parts of our child.
Another cause of diaper rash is allergy. There are instances where our babies may not like the material of a diaper. Perhaps that material of the diaper may have too many designs that can cause friction on the legs of the baby when they constantly rub their legs. Thus, it cannot be avoided.
What are the symptoms of diaper rash?
Usually, the most evident signs of rashes are the red spots that grow in certain areas. This is seen in the diaper area and they can be very irritating to our baby.
How do we treat diaper rash?
There are a number of ways to treat rashes. For simple rashes like mild irritation and little red spots, we can medicate these at home. There are creams available in our Drugstore which can help alleviate the itchiness they feel.
