It is one of the most common problems that a nonage could have. For ages, our grandmothers have suggested that homemade cotton nappies should be used for the soft and sensitive skin of the newborn. But we cannot overlook the good things about using diapers which are use-and-throw and hence more hygienic. If your baby has diaper rash, the first thing you should do is stop using diapers until the rashes disappear. Keep the area dry and clean. Apply rash cream which is readily available in the drug stores. Sucral Ano ointment is one of the commonly suggested medicines but it is best to consult your pediatrician before applying for any medicine. Also if the rash is severe, you can wash the affected area with diluted Dettol lotion or apply Dettol soap for a couple of days. The rash would disappear soon.
