How to Get Rid of Diaper Rash, According to Dermatologists
Most babies experience diaper rash, which develops when their skin is exposed to dampness and irritants (like urine and feces) from a dirty diaper.
Whether you’re trying to prevent diaper rash from forming or treating it after it develops, it is essential to keep the area clean, according to our experts.
…many common baby wipes can cause irritation if they contain preservatives or fragrances, which is why she suggests using wipes that contain gentle, all-natural ingredients, like WaterWipes.
If you find even the gentlest of wipes to be too harsh for your baby’s bum, Dr. Adarsh Vijay Mudgil, the founder of New York City’s Mudgil Dermatology, and Dr. Deirdre Connolly, of Schweiger Dermatology Group in Garden City, New York, both suggest you avoid wipes altogether and instead rinse only with warm water (using a squirt bottle for convenience, if necessary).
