oa Professional Nursing Today - Babies - nappy rash : family feature
Nappy or diaper rash is a common and usually minor condition in babies. It is caused by irritation of the baby's skin from prolonged contact with moisture, urine or stool and friction from the nappy. Usually it is only the areas of the skin touching the nappy that are affected. Sometimes, the nappy rash can be caused by fungal infections and less commonly, by bacterial infections.
