My baby suffers from red buttocks and has diaper rash

Especially for you, I have collected all the information about diaper rash on your baby's buttocks. Read about the regular solution. What it looks like, how you can recognize it, but more importantly, how you can solve it.


Hey, Does my baby suffer from diaper rash?


Diaper rash can be a cause of your baby's crying. You have to imagine, you have a diaper on all day and it does not sit well. And your baby can only tell you that by crying.


But how do you recognize diaper rash?


Diaper rash is located on your baby's buttocks. Or rather, on the skin covered by the diaper. Recognizing diaper rash is not very difficult because your skin is red and irritated. It may even be a little open or bleeding. Pretty pathetic.


The cause of diaper rash is the rubbing of the diaper on skin that is moist from urine or poop. Unfortunately, this is not always preventable. Stop no, you don't have to feel like a bad mother right away. That I reassure you every baby suffers from diaper rash in its time. This is insurmountable. It may be that your child has sensitive skin. Or that teeth come through teeth. Then your Child often has thin and acidic stools which can irritate extra.



Yes, what can I do about diaper rash?


The advice is to give your baby a clean diaper often. How often should you do that? It is advised by the doctor that you give your baby a clean diaper 7 times a day. You can tell yourself that, for example, you first give a clean diaper for every food.

With the changing of your baby, you can be sure that he is well awake, so that it can drink well.


But most important is how do you get rid of results from there?



Clean your child with a warm washcloth with only water. This instead of butt wipes with perfume. Because that perfume can be very painful on the chapped skin. You can also use water-based buttock wipes Waterwipes for example. The stool that is on your buttocks of the baby is sometimes difficult to get rid of. Then it is best to lubricate the buttocks with a little oil. Then you don't have to rub so hard.



The advice is that you then rub the skin with zinc ointment or zinc oil. A very well-known zinc ointment is Sudocreme, but there is also an ointment from Zwitsal and Neutral also has a very good one. That is zinc ointment without dyes or perfume. Talcum powder is also recommended for red buttocks. It absorbs moisture so that the baby's skin can recover better. The disadvantage of talcum powder is that your little baby can breathe it in. This has been shown by recent research that this can be harmful to lung function. The talcum powder has been found in the lungs of people who use talcum powder twice a day. An alternative to talcum powder is maizena that sprays less. It also absorbs moisture and the baby's skin nice and soft



A good idea is to let the baby's buttocks dry equally well in the air. So just put the baby down without a diaper. You can do this, for example, on your changing mat that then puts in the box. One of the best is very briefly with those buttocks in the sun.



If your baby continues to suffer from red pills, then it is preferable to contact the doctor, because your baby can also suffer from a fungal infection. Especially if the skin is very red and it does not decrease after a day or two.



I wish you the best of luck in changing all the lazy people. And hopefully your baby's buttocks will be restored soon.
