Top tips for nappy rash

Nappy rash

Nappy rash is a red, irritating skin rash in the area covered by a baby's nappy

Most nappy rash can be improved with simple measures such as changing nappies more often, washing baby’s buttocks in warm water with mild soap or soap substitute then rinsing well and drying, applying a protective cream/ointment, using nappy liners and leaving the baby's nappy off for a time when practical.

If your baby is experiencing nappy rash, talk to your local Life Pharmacist for advice on various treatments.
