Diaper rashes are completely normal and very common among infants. However, diaper rashes can turn severe and deserve care. The appearance of a diaper rash ranges from a few red, irritated spots to redness over the entire diaper area. Inflammation can make the skin look swollen and feel warm. The main cause of a diaper rash is prolonged contact between the sensitive skin of the baby and the contents of the diaper. Wastes in urine can break down to ammonia, which is very irritating. Redness can also occur in areas where the diaper rubs the skin. Other possible causes could be contact allergy to chemicals in commercial diaper wipes or detergents used to wash cloth diapers. There are, however, things you can do to control it. Try out these simple home remedies to provide your baby a more comfortable babyhood.
