Self Care Advice

How to treat nappy rash:

  • If the rash isn’t upsetting the baby, at each nappy change apply a thin layer of a barrier cream to protect their skin

Look after a baby’s skin by:

  • Changing wet or dirty nappies as soon as possible
  • Clean the whole nappy area gently but thoroughly, wiping from front to back
  • Use water or fragrance-free and alcohol-free baby wipes
  • Bath a baby daily – but avoid bathing them more than twice a day as that may dry out their skin
  • Dry your baby gently after washing them – avoid vigorous rubbing
  • Lie your baby on a towel and leave their nappy off for as long and as often as you can to let fresh air get to their skin
  • Do not use soap, bubble bath, or lotions
  • Do not use talcum powder as it contains ingredients that could irritate a baby’s skin

You can also use an antiseptic cream like Care Antiseptic First Aid Cream to treat nappy rash causing your baby discomfort.
