FFTFF

Comments:
Causes of napkin rash include contact dermatitis, which may produce ammonia and this may
burn the skin. Infection with bacteria and candida yeasts may cause nappy rash, as can
psoriasis and atopic dermatitis affecting the nappy area. Nappy rash is not an indicator of
infantile eczema, and it is not more common in boys, nor is it less common in soy fed infants.
Treatment is best achieved by prevention by frequent (disposable absorbent) nappy changing,
and fluid feeding early in the day to lessen night time urination. Anti-fungal and Lotrimin lotions
may also be useful.
