Lunar rash; what to do?

by Kimberly Schoobaar on December 26, 2020

Your baby is crying. You don't know exactly what it is until you change the diaper. Oh oh red billets, this can only mean one thing. Diaper rash. This rash is very annoying to a baby, it itches and can be very painful. But for every problem, there is a solution.

What's diaper rash?

Lunar rash is a rash often caused by poop and puddle. Because this is often wet, the skin can start to scouring in the diaper. Then red painful sheds will be created. If the baby has a diaper long to wear, the chances of diaper rash will also get bigger. This too has additional consequences. If the diaper is too long to go, there can be fungi here. Because the skin of the baby is still softer and often also broken, the fungi can enter the skin.

Avoid diaper rash

It's important that you change your baby's diaper at least 8 times a day. If your baby is in a diaper too long, the skin becomes softer and more humid, increasing the chance of scaling spots. Take care of the skin. Make sure that if you bathe the baby, the skin washes carefully but well, avoid soap with alcohol in it. Use a mildbaby soap. Dry the skin off well. After washing your baby use a baby bodylotion.This prevents dry skin.
