Diaper rash is one of the most common skin conditions for babies. Almost 75% of moms report that their baby gets a diaper rash at least once every six months. And over half of those babies experience diaper rash monthly. So if you suspect your baby has a diaper rash, don’t worry. You are not alone! Fortunately, Balmex Complete Protection can help treat your baby’s diaper rash and keep it from recurring.
Diaper rash can appear on your baby’s skin as mild redness or reddish bumps. The skin may also appear slightly puffy. In some cases, diaper rash can also appear as raised, red patches. Watch your baby for signs of a diaper rash. If your baby seems more uncomfortable than usual or extra fussy when their diaper area is touched in the bath or at changing times, it could mean that a diaper rash is developing.
Most diaper rashes are treatable with non-prescription diaper rash treatments like Balmex Complete Protection. If your baby’s skin has blisters, open sores, is severely red, or does not respond to diaper rash treatments after 7 days, call your pediatrician. A prescription medication may be required.
