Playing with my baby is therapeutic for me. To think that I gave birth to such a sweet angel never fails to overwhelm me with an array of emotions. I feel supernatural but helplessly vulnerable at the same time, as I think about all the harmful substances my baby would be exposed to, and what little control I have over it. Vulnerability & protectiveness in me has inspired me to be as informed as I possibly can, and do all the things that are in my baby’s best interest. While on this quest of removing every barrier that comes my way, I realized that diaper rashes are unpleasant and almost inevitable, although using a diaper is unavoidable. Rashes can be treatable and bearable if you follow a simple process while using the diapers.
What is a diaper rash?
Diaper rash is a common form of inflamed skin (dermatitis) that takes the form of a red splotch or red scales in the area of the thighs, genitals, and buttocks. A diaper rash occurs in a warm and moist place, making the skin inflamed. They can vary from being nasty or mild. The good news is that it can be treated at home, as long as you have the right product with the right mixture of ingredients for your baby’s supple skin.
Diapers are a necessity for babies, making them extremely prone to getting rashes. Treating them is crucial as they can irritate the baby long after the dirty diaper has been thrown into the bin and has been recycled. Rashes can be painful for the baby, and sometimes the parents do not even get to know what is bothering their child. Some common causes of diaper rashes are:
- Direct contact of urine and stool with the baby’s skin in the diaper
- Infrequent changing of diapers
- Diapers draped in an airtight manner which prevents the wetness from drying and irritates the skin by being in direct contact with it
- Allergies to certain food produce
- Yeast infections and diarrhea
- Skin sensitivity and chafing
Here are some ways that you can treat diaper rashes:
- While changing the baby’s diaper, be gentle and wash their bottom with lukewarm water and use unscented baby wipes (which you can slightly wet), and pat dry gently. Wipes are not needed for when you are washing urine, water shall do the trick.
- It is crucial to use a cream as a protective barrier between the diaper and baby’s skin between all diaper changes, while thoroughly wiping off the previous layer of cream that has been exposed to urine and stool when you are changing the diaper.
- Not sharing is caring in this case. Do not share your baby’s personal products with other babies. Do not use the same finger while putting on the barrier cream and expose the cream to urine etc.
- Only stick to chemical free products while treating diaper rash.
- It is crucial to remove your baby’s diaper from time to time and let the air and sun do their magic.
