What is Diaper Rash?
Diaper rash is a skin irritation caused by wearing a diaper, especially if it’s wet or soiled, for an extended period of time. You may also notice dampness that collects in your baby’s delicate skin folds. Diaper rash can cause the skin in your baby’s diaper area to be raw, irritated, and painful. There are various reasons as to why it occurs, and it’s important to remember that diaper rash is incredibly common and is usually easy to treat.
