Learn about nappy rash
Babies’ skin is thinner and softer than ours, and much more sensitive. It also has a higher pH level, which can make it more sensitive to irritants. Although unpleasant for you and your baby, nappy rash is common and easy to manage with the right care, like using a nappy rash cream to help protect from the causes of nappy rash at every nappy change. If your baby has nappy rash, please don’t feel like you’ve done something wrong – it happens to all of us.
With a combination of scientific expertise and a passion for family healthcare, Bepanthen have formulated a preservative-free, fragrance-free and colourant-free baby ointment to protect your baby’s precious skin from the causes of nappy rash.
What is nappy rash? Can a cream help?
Nappy rash can occur at any time during your child’s nappy-wearing stage. Up to a third of nappy-wearing babies and toddlers can get nappy rash at any one time. It doesn't usually develop in newborns, but all babies can get nappy rash. Nappy rash can appear as red rash patches or the whole of your baby's bottom may be red and may have scattered pimples or swellings. The skin may be hot to the touch, look sore and be painful and itchy for your child.
