Overcoming diaper eczema in baby

Diaper eczema in babies is a skin disorder caused by the inflammation of the skin in the area of the baby's body, covered with a diaper. These diseases generally occur in the thigh skin folds, between the two buttocks, and also can occur on another part of baby's skin.

Part of skin that covered baby diaper, easily becomes inflamed because the baby's skin becomes warm, moist, and sensitive to bacterial or compounds that can cause skin irritation. How to prevent eczema diaper is as follows:
  • Change the baby's diaper regularly and as often as possible.
  • Do not let the baby has wet diapers because the baby's urine. Prolonged contact between the baby's skin with a wet and dirty diapers, can cause diaper rash.
  • When cleaning the baby, pat the baby's body parts usually covered with a diaper (buttock, thigh, groin, and the baby's genital area), gently using a clean towel. Try to avoid brushing the area rubbed too hard.
  • Occasionally let the baby's bottom open without wearing a diaper. Take a few moments, so that the baby's body usually covered with a diaper still dry and clean.
  • Be careful in choosing a diaper for the baby, because some diaper material can cause diaper rash. If your baby is not suitable to use a certain brand of diapers, immediately replace with another brand of diapers.
  • If your baby is wearing cloth diapers are used repeatedly, wash the cloth diapers using a detergent that has a formula not too hard.
  • Avoid wearing clothes with perfume softener, because the deodorant in these clothes softener can irritate baby's skin.
  • Be sure to rinse the baby's diapers really clean, so that the remaining detergent in the diapers can be cleaned as much as possible.
  • Avoid installing a diaper is too strong. Try to provide air space between the diaper and the baby's skin.
