Diaper dermatitis, also known as diaper rash, is a common skin irritation that affects infants and young children. It is characterized by red, inflamed skin in the diaper area and can be accompanied by discomfort or pain. If you have been reading NOLEO blogs, you would have seen this mentioned several times.
But in winter time, with the shift in temperature and the variation in moisture level, it is important to remind everyone of why and how we designed NOLEO 3-in-1.
Indeed, there are several factors that can contribute to the development of diaper rash, including wet or dirty diapers, irritation from chemicals in disposable diapers or wipes, skin sensitivity, and yeast infections. Illness or diarrhea and the use of certain medications, such as antibiotics, can also increase the risk of diaper rash.
To prevent and treat diaper rash, it is important to keep the diaper area clean and dry, use a protective barrier such as diaper cream and choose the right type of diaper for your child's skin. If the rash persists or appears to be caused by something other than irritation, it is a good idea to stop using wet wipes, consult a healthcare provider for further evaluation and treatment.
In most cases, diaper rash can be effectively managed with proper hygiene hence why we decided to combine the cleaning and the protection in the same organic and natural formulation, for this cream that is effectively used like an ointment.
However, it is important to pay attention to your child's skin and seek medical advice if the rash does not improve or appears to be caused by something other than irritation.
