How can I get rid of my baby’s diaper rash?

Your questions

I have a five-week-old baby, and I can’t get rid of their diaper rash. It’s been almost two weeks. He isn’t crying a lot, but I know he’s uncomfortable when I wash him. Do you have a solution? Thank you, as I am running out of options. Céline


Hello Céline, a young baby will often have skin irritation or outbreaks at this young age, and even after. At this stage, it could be a fungal infection, diaper rash, reaction their diaper or other types of dermatitis. To learn more about baby dermatology, please read the article I wrote with a dermatologist. You will find many possible solutions, but if the condition persists, you should consult to ensure that the irritation doesn’t spread and lead to other complications.

Please read Five Common Baby Skin Conditions.
