Learn how to prevent your baby’s diaper rashes easily

“You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket.” – Lish McBride

And as all new parents would realize, their tiny bundles of joy are as delicate as all precious things that promise hope and love. That is why when it comes to protecting the little one, there are so many concerns. For example, even a pesky little rash can send parents and their darling in a frenzy- though not without justified cause. No matter how small or big, baby rashes should not be taken lightly. The best way to treat a diaper rash is by keeping the area clean. Let’s explore this in depth. 

Infants tend to have a fragile immunity. In their growing stages, they need additional measures and support to prevent skin irritation or infections that may cause a diaper rash. 

  1. Be swift with diaper changes: Cleanliness and vigilance are keys to preventing the delicate baby skin from getting irritated or chafed. Therefore, you should avoid any delays in changing a soiled diaper. Fresh diapers will have no trapped moisture or filth to support bacterial growth which is among the root causes of diaper rash. 
  2. Be gentle with cleaning: It is recommended to only use baby-friendly cleaning products that are meant for a newborn’s skin. Never rub too hard or allow fecal matter to dry up on the skin before you clean. Ideally, cleaning and airing the baby’s bottoms is a great practice between diaper changes. 
  3. Keep the area moisturized: Use gently baby oil or baby cream to keep the baby’s behind well moisturized. This practice prevents itchiness which is often caused by dry skin. And skin can dry out easily when there is prolonged contact with diapers or frequent cleaning even with baby soaps. 
  4. Use high-quality Diaper rash Prevention Products: The usual diaper rash creams that rub off easily when in contact with the diaper may not be an ideal preventive measure against rashes. Instead, opt for SkinEasi’s diaper rash gel which is formulated using a trademark protective layer technology. The gel is made of skin-friendly silicone elastomers which is entirely different from cream-based rash-prevention products. Furthermore, the gel acts as a barrier against urine and fecal matter. As a result, the baby’s bottom is free of contact from these rash-causing elements. You can expect more than eight hours of protection against diaper rashes with the efficacy of the gel. 
  5. Take good care of the baby’s diet: Diaper rashes can also be caused as an allergic reaction to acidic foods, sugary or fatty foods. It is a good practice to consult your pediatrician when introducing new foods to the baby or making any changes to their diet. Similarly, making certain dietary adjustments like including starchy foods can help relieve the rash symptoms.
  6. Monitor the baby’s health: Sometimes, rashes could be a symptom of some underlying health problem. If you suspect that despite proper cleaning, drying and diaper changes/dietary improvements, the rashes are not reducing, it may be time for a closer inspection. Ask your pediatrician to take a look and rule out any adverse allergies or reactions to, let’s say, pollutants of any kind. Do not panic if the baby is prescribed antibiotics. It is not always a cause of worry and allergies too subside rather quickly with medical intervention at the right time.
