In brief: Diaper

Diaper rash is extremely common in young children.
Babies have very sensitive skin - add urine, stool, moisture and friction from the diaper and you get a rash. Here are a few tips for treatment: -change diapers frequently, especially stool -wipe well -use unscented cloths or just plain water to wash and gently blot their bottom dry -let them "air out" - leaving them undiapered on a towel as often as possible -use generous amounts of thick white diaper cream to create a protective barrier between the skin and the next time she urinates or stools -for stubborn rashes or those that are worse in the leg creases than the surface of the diaper area with little red dots, you can try clotrimazole, an over the counter anti-fungal cream if the rash is worsening or not improving over the next few days, give your child's doctor a call.
