Irritation From Skin Products
Sometimes products used to help the baby ends up giving them a diaper rash. The use of soaps, wipes, and detergents to keep the baby clean can also give them irritated skin and cause a diaper rash. When a new product is introduced to the infant, there is a chance that their tender skin could react to it. Solutions to alleviating skin irritation include immediately discontinuing the use of the product in question and to seek another alternative that is compatible with the baby's sensitive skin, such as unscented products. Also, a moisture-barrier agent, like zinc oxide and petroleum jelly will help protect the sensitive skin from diaper rash.
