Diaper rashes Causes


Diaper rash can be due to several reasons. Some of these include –

  • Irritation from stool and urine over the sensitive baby’s skin.Delays in changing diapers or frequent bowel movements or diarrhea can lead to a more propensity to diaper rash. This is because feces are more irritating than urine
  • Tight fitting nappies or diapers can rub against the skin and can lead to a rash
  • Irritation from a new product or allergies. The baby’s skin may react to baby wipes, disposable diapers, or a detergent, bleach or fabric softener used for cloth diapers or to baby lotions, powders and oils
  • Bacterial or yeast infections may cause the rash. The area covered by the diaper is warm and moist and thus acts as a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. These rashes can be found within the creases of the skin.
  • Diaper rash can occur after introduction of new foods. New foods change the pH and contents of the stool that increases the likelihood of diaper rash. If the baby is breast-fed, he or she may develop diaper rash in response to something the mother has eaten.
  • Babies with skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis (eczema), may be more likely to develop diaper rash.
  • Use of antibiotics raise the risk of diaper rash
