Diaper Dermatitis

It is a very common condition for newborn baby. A form of irritant contact dermatitis, Diaper Dermatitis, affects the area of skin which comes at contact of napkin or diaper. Cloth nappies are more likely to cause it. Though, it affects babies who wear napkins, but occasionally may affect adults and children who suffer from urinary or faecal incontinence & use diapers.

It is also known as Napkin Dermatitis/ Nappy rash/ Diaper rash/ Irritant Diaper Dermatitis/ Generic rash. Diaper dermatitis can be diaper associated or non diaper associated. Skin of babies, mostly of age group 9-12 months, which comes under the contact of diaper, gets easily affected because it is very tender and soft.
