Baby skin is very different from adults. Babies have very soft and sensitive skin. For that, parents must be extra in maintaining the health of the baby's skin. One way to protect baby's skin is to use the right diaper. Because, diapers that are not suitable can cause skin problems such as diaper rash.

Diaper rash is redness of the skin around the diaper area. In general, diaper rash is caused by the dampness of the diaper which triggers an infection. In addition, according to the consultant pediatrician MAKUKU, dr. Andreas said diaper rash can also appear because the ability, function and anatomy of a baby's skin is not the same as an adult's. So that wet or damp diaper materials can trigger infection much faster than adults.

Diaper rash is most common in newborns or newborns. However, according to dr. Andreas, the average diaper rash occurs usually under the age of nine months. "Babies under the age of 9 months also increase the risk of diaper rash because their skin function is not as good as adults," he said.

Signs of diaper rash will heal when the baby's skin is no longer red. Even the baby's skin color will tend to be darker than normal baby skin. Later after dark, the baby's skin will begin to dry. For the time to recover from diaper rash himself, dr. Andreas said that it takes a relatively long time because it depends on the parents' care for their child's diaper rash.

"The fastest is 1-2 weeks. It can even last for months if not handled properly,” explained dr. Andreas.

The form of handling diaper rash that parents can do at home is to protect and protect the baby's skin by using baby cream. Baby cream can moisturize while maintaining barrier to prevent infection or diaper rash. "What needs to be taken care of is how we coat the skin before the diaper, so between the skin and the diaper there is a barrier or emollient that can protect the baby's skin from diaper rash." he added.

And parents should be more diligent in cleaning the skin area covered by diapers with water and cotton or wet wipes. If the diaper rash gets worse and causes sores and makes your little one fussy, you should immediately take your child to the doctor for more appropriate treatment.

Mainstay Diapers to Reduce the Risk of Diaper Rash

To prevent diaper rash and other skin problems, dr. Andreas recommends diapers that have high absorption and choose diapers that have cavities and good air circulation. Diapers with these criteria can be found by parents on MAKUKU Air Diapers. MAKUKU Air Diapers are made of SAP (Super Absorbent Polymer) core structure.

MAKUKU diapers are very tough in absorbing liquids. The liquid that is absorbed evenly does not clump on one side only. Absorbs quickly so the extra dry diaper surface reduces the risk of diaper rash. Even this super thin diaper is able to absorb up to 18 times the initial weight of the diaper and holds up to 600 ml of liquid.

Amazingly, MAKUKU will soon re-launch the Makuku Air Diapers SLIM product. Want to know the difference? Come on, just follow @makuku.indonesia.official and visit the makuku.co.id website for more information. (Aq/MKK)
