Nappy Rash

What is nappy rash?

A common problem for babies between 0 and 24 months old is nappy rash – which if left untreated, can develop into a more serious skin problem. The characteristics of nappy rash include skin which appears red, chapped and sometimes spotty.

How to treat nappy rash:

  1. Careful cleansing is imperative and fragranced bubble baths should be avoided. Botani’s Olive Soothing Cream Cleanser or Olive Cleansing Bar purify and soothe affected areas without further irritation.
  2. Dry the area using a soft cloth or cotton wool.
  3. Apply Phytoseptic Anti-Fungal Skin Cream after each nappy change.
  4. Phytoseptic assists in the treatment by acting to prevent bacterial and fungal infections from harming babies’ skin.
  5. Phytoseptic also possesses absorbent properties which help to keep the area dry.
  6. Olivéne Repair Balm will help protect the area from further irritation, by forming a protective layer.
  7. It is advised that wet or soiled nappies are changed regularly and the nappy area is exposed to air several times a day.

It is recommended that correct diagnosis is made by your medical or health practitioner. If symptoms persist, please consult your practitioner.
