Tips to help treat and prevent diaper rash
Washing sensitive skin with warm water, or a warm bath, may be a less painful option if a diaper rash is present.
How can I treat diaper rash?
Help protect and treat the area by applying a barrier cream with zinc oxide (like Zincofax® products) every time you change a diaper.
If you use a diaper rash cream, wash it off with mild soap and water after each change and reapply.
Don’t share ointments between babies. Once you have touched the affected skin, be sure not to put your fingers back in the jar; if you need more cream, use another finger.
Do not use baby powder or talcum powder. These do not protect against diaper rash and can cause friction and irritate your baby's skin.
If the diaper rash persists or worsens, do not hesitate to contact your doctor.
How can I help prevent diaper rash?
The best way to prevent diaper rash is to change your baby’s diaper frequently, particularly when your baby has diarrhea. If your child has diarrhea, you can help prevent diaper rash by applying a baby diaper rash cream including any Zincofax® products to help protect the skin every time you change a diaper.
