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


The cream is also used to treat minor burns and abrasions.




What causes nappy rash?

  • A baby's skin being in contact with wee or poo for a long time
  • The nappy rubbing against a baby's skin
  • Not cleaning the nappy area or changing the nappy often enough
  • Soap, detergent or bubble bath, alcohol-based baby wipes
  • A baby recently taking antibiotics

What does nappy rash look like?

There may be red patches on a baby's bottom, or the whole area may be red.

Their skin may look sore and feel hot to touch, and there may be spots, pimples or blisters.
