Treating diaper rash

If your baby’s skin in the area covered by the diaper is sore, red and feels warm to touch your baby may have diaper rash.


You can follow the steps below to treat diaper rash.

  • Change your baby’s diaper every time it becomes wet or soiled
  • It is really important to stop the chemicals in urine and faeces aggravating your baby’s delicate skin
  • Leave the diaper off for as long as possible to let your baby’s skin get some fresh air
  • Try to ensure that your baby’s diaper fits well and is not chafing or rubbing
  • Avoid using any soaps, detergents or bubble bath that could be irritating your baby’s skin
  • Ensure your baby’s skin is clean and dry before using a fresh, clean and dry diaper
  • Use a diaper rash treatment cream such as Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream at every diaper change to soothe and heal the skin.
