What is baby diaper dermatitis?
Baby diaper dermatitis is a common cause that upsets babies and makes them cry, which is caused by inflammation of the skin that is irritated by moisture and contact with urine and feces.
It starts with a slight redness of the skin in the diaper area, resulting in irritation and discomfort.
What causes diaper rash in infants?
Infant diaper dermatitis is caused by the contact of urine with the baby's skin for prolonged periods of time. Urine can react with the stool in the diaper, affecting the skin, and in severe cases can cause skin rupture or even blisters.
It is also possible for the skin to become infected afterwards. The friction caused by rubbing the diaper on the baby's sensitive skin and detergents that have not been thoroughly rinsed from cloth diapers can also contribute to the development of baby diaper dermatitis.
When is baby diaper dermatitis more likely to occur?
Baby diaper dermatitis can occur at any time and sometimes for no apparent reason, as some babies have more sensitive skin and may be more prone to this condition.
However, There are certain periods during which babies are particularly susceptible to infant diaper rash, such as:
During teething When switching from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding After using antibiotics, which can disrupt the baby's digestive system causing diarrhea When starting solid foods Consume cow's milk for the first time cause the problem to start.

It usually does not affect the skin folds. Areas such as the buttocks and upper thighs may be red and sweaty.
The skin may also be irritated, blemished and hot to the touch. Dry and scaly skin spots may also develop.
In more severe cases, blisters and pus-filled spots may appear. The best option is to prevent the appearance of baby diaper dermatitis from the beginning, but if it occurs, you can soothe and heal the area, as well as prevent its recurrence by using a baby dermatitis cream at every diaper change.
How the cream works
Sudocrem can relieve the pain and irritation of baby diaper dermatitis, while other ingredients can help heal the skin.
First, Sudocrem is prepared on a basis with water-repellent properties which forms a protective barrier, thus helping to stop the contact of any irritants (urine and feces) with the skin.
In addition, the emollient effect can soothe irritated skin that has become inflamed, while leaving a soft feeling on the skin.
The general rule is to use a small amount and apply it in a thin layer. Massage in small circular motions until the Sudocrem disappears, leaving a clear film. If the affected area is not covered, apply a little more cream. However, if the area remains white after application, then too much has been applied.
Sudocrem can be applied to any diaper change. Remember, however, to apply only a thin layer of cream, as a small amount of Sudocrem can spread too much.
