What is diaper rash?

A diaper rash is essentially a skin rash...an irritation and inflammation of the skin located in the diaper area in infants and young children. A diaper rash, also known as “irritant diaper dermatitis”, is characterized by redness and scaling of the skin in the diaper area.

Diaper rash is the result of your baby’s skin getting irritated from a soiled or wet diaper. A child with very sensitive skin may be more prone to get diaper rash or a rash can happen when feces or urine in the diaper are in contact with the skin for too long, making the skin sore and red.

What are the symptoms of diaper rash?

Diaper rashes often appear as inflammation and redness on the skin with shiny patches and some pimply spots.
The rash is usually contained to the diaper area (buttocks, upper thighs and genitalia).
