Prevention of Nappy rash

Nappy rash is easy to prevent as long as you maintain the right hygiene requirement. From conservation, few mothers practice this, thereby increasing the likelihood of infection. Clearskin London experts dedicate their time to advise mothers on how to care for their child as well as things to avoid to prevent nappy rashes, and they include the following:

  • When you change your baby’s nappy, wash the buttocks with mild soap and warm water (only water if there is no saddle) or unscented wet wipes, then rinse off and dry the skin. If the skin is very irritated and red, it may be less painful to wash the buttocks in a bath of warm water.
  • Use an unscented protective ointment, such as petroleum jelly or cream containing zinc oxide, to protect and lubricate irritated skin after each diaper change. Clean the soiled cream with soapy water or unscented wet wipes at each diaper change, then apply another.
  • Do not share the cream or ointment with other children and do not put your fingers in the pot after touching your child’s skin. Use another finger if you need more ointment.
  • Do not use talcum powder or baby powder.
  • If possible, leave your baby bare-bottomed for short periods to expose his skin to open air. Your baby will feel better, and the nappy rash will heal faster.

During an appointment at Clearskin London, we help diagnose and treat the disease and also give a comprehensive guideline on things to avoid to prevent a nappy rash from reccurring. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Treatment For Nappy Rash

Fortunately, Nappy rash isn’t so complicated to treat. You can treat the skin yourself and get it back to a healthy condition. First, avoid irritating the skin by applying a thin layer of lotion on the area around the buttocks to protect the skin. Secondly, clean the nappy area thoroughly using water and mild wipes before fixing diapers.

Contrary to what most mothers believe, most dermatologist clinics advise against bathing a baby more than twice daily to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oil. Also, follow all the hygiene requirements, which include:

  • Changing the nappies as frequent as possible
  • Avoid using heavy scented products like moisturisers, soap or lotion on the nappy area
  • Avoid using talcum powder on the babies skin

Quick Treatment For Diaper Rash

Usually, a nappy rash disappears after 3 days provided you stick to the hygiene requirements. However, if no improvement is seen after the duration stated above, then you’re better off booking an appointment at a dermatologist clinic to avoid complications.

Fortunately, there are several dermatology clinics in London. However, Clearskin London provides an unrivalled quality of service.

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
