Nappy rash is commonly caused when a baby’s skin is exposed to a wet or dirty nappy for too long. Symptoms may include rash, blistering and ulcers. Prevention and treatment include more frequent nappy changes, use of a gentle barrier cream and avoiding skin irritants such as soap and some wipes. Severe nappy rash needs prompt medical attention.
