Nappy rash appears as small red dots on your baby’s bottom, with an inflamed area of broken skin or even pus-filled spots in more serious cases.

Breastfed babies are less prone to nappy rash, which can occur if a wet or dirty nappy is left on for too long.

But some babies suffer regardless of frequent changes.

The bacteria from your baby’s stools breaks down the urine to ammonia, which irritates and burns the skin. Loose bowel motions, which often occur when your baby is ill, can have this effect after just one nappy.

The following may help:

  • Start using nappy rash cream at the first sign of broken skin.

  • Be aware of nappy preparations that aggravate the condition.

  • After your baby has had nappy rash, it’s important to allow her skin to be aired between changes for up to 20 minutes.

  • In severe or persistent cases, seek your doctor’s advice.
