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.
