Diaper rash is a common form of inflamed skin or dermatitis. The skin may look red, burned, scalded or raw. Most infants develop it at some time. This occurs most often in babies between the ages of 9 and 12 months. It is most common after solid foods are added to your baby’s diet, if you are breast-feeding and have eaten certain foods, or if your baby is taking antibiotics. Other factors that can contribute are-----
• Continuously wet diapers
• Covering diapers with plastic pants
• Rubbing of the diaper on baby’s skin
• A skin reaction to chemicals found in perfumes, diaper
wipes, detergents, or fabric softeners
