What Is Diaper Rash?
Diaper rash or Diaper Dermatitis is irritation or inflammation on your baby’s skin in the diaper area that can be mild or severe.
Newborns, infants, and toddlers under the age of 3 years can develop a diaper rash, and it is particularly most common in babies between 9-12 months old.
Irritation can be found on the buttocks, genitals, and thighs. Diaper rash can hurt, be painful and burn your baby’s skin especially if it turns into a severe rash.
Unfortunately, diaper rash can happen despite how careful you are about changing your baby’s diaper, and can turn severe very quickly.
