Recently, my daughter appeared diaper rash. This happened for the first time in six months, after the relatives handed over the packaging of new diapers from Latvia. Apparently, they categorically did not suit us, because a couple of hours after I put on her first diaper, her skin turned red and bleeding wounds appeared on her.
I often had such problems with my eldest daughter. Because of the problems with the chair diaper rash were our constant companion. I had to remember the proven methods of dealing with this unpleasant phenomenon, which I want to share with you, dear readers of Alimero. I hope that my ways will help your kids.
Everyone knows that it is desirable to leave the child for a while without a diaper. When my daughter had diaper rash, instead of the usual 20 minutes, I left her naked for an hour and a half.
Some people advise replacing disposable diapers with gauze diapers for the time of treatment of diaper rash, but I do not recommend this. The gel filler retains moisture, making the diaper dry to the touch for several hours. Gauze instantly gets wet, thus creating a favorable environment for the reproduction of microbes and the emergence of new diaper rash on the delicate skin of the baby.
It is necessary to wash the child every time you change the diaper, and then thoroughly dry the skin with a cotton swab. Be sure to take a bath at the end of each day. In order to get rid of diaper rash faster, I bathed my daughter in a decoction of herbs – a daisy and a string. The pediatrician also advised to use a weak solution of potassium permanganate, but we did without it.
After bathing, you can smear dry skin with a thin layer of baby, sea buckthorn or olive oil or apply powder.
When my eldest daughter had diaper rash, my mother advised me to treat my skin with a blue water solution. At first I did not take this method seriously. Bought, on the advice of a friend, Bepanten, and used it. But when the wounds got bigger, I still listened to my mother’s words.
Blue I applied a cotton swab. The wounds very quickly began to dry out and become covered with a crust. This method helped me out more than once. I use it now. Its disadvantages are the blue color, which cannot be washed off the first time. If you lay out a child without a diaper, the diaper will turn blue soon.
Using the methods listed above, we got rid of diaper rash in 2 days. And what did you do with diaper rash?
