The rash can appear on the neck, the baby’s skin or, most commonly, in the parts covered with the diaper. The rash can change its color from pale red, to bright red and finally it can thicken the skin filling it with pus acnes. The most common reasons for a rash are the dissolving products in the urine and the poop, the inappropriate detergents and softeners or the use of inappropriate cosmetics for skin care. It is best to wash baby’s skin with plain water and to avoid the use of antibacterial and aromatic soups, as well as baby wipes because the alcohol and perfumes that they contain can irritate the skin. In order to prevent rashes the dermatologists recommend using products that have a balanced pH, without artificial colors and synthetic perfumes, with natural herbal extracts and etheric oils as chamomile, aloe vera, yarrow, pot marigold etc. But, the problems won’t fade away just using herbal products, because it is imperative to find what causes the rash.
