f your baby stays in a wet diaper for a long time, there is a higher possibility of developing diaper rash. In most cases, mechanical irritation of the delicate skin of the baby causes diaper rash, also known as irritant contact dermatitis, though skin infections are sometimes associated with diaper rash. Urine, stool and soaps are common skin irritants. Plastic pants and disposable diapers can also lead to irritation.
Because of the mechanical irritation or friction, the nappy area becomes red. The bums tend to become dry and scaly and you may even notice discolored patches on the affected area. Zinc oxide is conventionally used for soothing the diaper area. Over the counter diaper rash creams containing zinc oxide are usually found to be effective in healing contact diaper rash. However, in case of infectious diaper rash, consult your baby’s pediatrician.  Here is a list of diaper rash creams available in India that can help your baby.
