Diaper rash is a red condition around the skin covered by a diaper. Because usually the diaper-covered area is very humid, especially if the baby uses a diaper for 24 hours. There are several habits or factors that cause diaper rash. But unfortunately, the cause of diaper rash is the most common but rarely realized by parents. Come on, mom and dad know what are the five main causes of diaper rash so that your little one avoids diaper rash.

According to consultant pediatrician, dr. Andreas Sp.A M.Ked (Ped), said that the cause of diaper rash usually occurs because the area covered by the diaper is too moist. This humid condition is triggered by the low absorbency of the diaper. So when the diaper collects the baby's fluid, the urine leaks out because the diaper can't lock the fluid properly.

Diaper rash can also be caused by wearing the wrong size diaper. Diaper size that is too small or too tight can cause a red rash on the baby's skin. Parents are advised to pay attention the size of the baby's diaper. Do not let your little one use a narrow diaper. "Choose the size of the diaper from the baby's weight, not from the child's age," said dr. Andreas in MAKUKU's IG Live and Mama's Choice with the theme 5 Causes of Diaper Rash

Now many diaper products claim to be able to accommodate your little one's fluids in a large capacity. But that doesn't mean parents can let their little ones linger in diapers even though they're not full. Also make sure mom and dad change diapers regularly. dr. Andreas recommends changing diapers every 3-4 hours. "Rarely changing diapers can also cause diaper rash, so they must be changed regularly," added dr. Andreas.

As a preventive measure to keep your little one comfortable in using diapers and preventing diaper rash, dr. Andreas suggested using baby diapers rash cream. The benefits of using this baby diapers rash cream are so that the moisture of your little one's skin is maintained. When your baby's skin is dry, it is very susceptible to germs and bacteria. So that the skin barrier or the outermost layer of the skin can maintain its health and protect the little one's skin. Use a diaper rash cream on areas that are often covered in diapers. Make sure the cream uses ingredients that are safe for your little one's skin.

"Don't choose randomly, you must pass BPOM, do not contain perfume, SLS and have been dermatologically tested," explained dr. Andreas.

In addition, diaper rash occurs due to skin friction with the diaper. This is the importance according to dr. Andreas uses a soft and thin diaper. And use diapers that have high absorption, do not seep and are the right size. Factors diaper rash can also increase in infants who have a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema.

Diaper rash can heal in a matter of days if properly cared for. However, if the diaper rash does not show signs of improving, mom and dad must check the condition of your little one to the doctor. Diaper rash that is left to get worse can lead to an abscess. “The abscess is like a bunch of boils. Worse, this health problem can interfere with your little one's sleep patterns, fever, and fussiness. (Aq/MKK)
