Also called diaper dermatitis, diaper rash is characterized by redness, inflammation, and irritation in the area where diapers are worn. The most important cause of diaper rash is wearing soiled diapers for an extended period without changing. To prevent, change diapers after it gets wet. Also, use correct-fitting diapers. Do not use alcohol wipes to clean the area as it can only increase the irritation by causing dryness.
