PREVENTING NAPPY RASH
Allow Nappy Area To Dry Before Reapplying Diaper
The key to healing nappy rash is keeping the area as clean and dry as possible.
Once you have finished cleaning your baby’s bottom, pat it dry (no rubbing!) before applying a thick DESITIN® ointment for barrier of protection. Better yet, allow your baby to go without a nappy for a little while to let her bottom air dry.
Protect Baby’s Tender Skin With A Nappy Rash Barrier Treatment
Applying a nappy rash treatment ointment or paste protects the skin from further injury while creating an optimal environment to allow the skin to heal. It will also help prevent friction from the diaper.
Apply a thick layer of a zinc oxide barrier cream, such as DESITIN® Nappy Rash Ointment at each nappy change to soothe and protect your baby’s irritated skin.
Zinc oxide treatments can help treat and prevent nappy rash by
- Forming a protective layer on the skin to reduce friction
- Blocking wetness from skin
- Protecting against the enzymes found in feces
- Protecting and soothing irritated skin, allowing it to heal naturally
How To Apply DESITIN® Ointment and How Much
Using your fingers, apply a super-thick layer to the entire diaper area, as though you were frosting a cake. Try to touch baby’s irritated skin as little as possible.
Be generous in applying DESITIN® ointments. DESITIN®ointments are safe when used as directed and may be used at every nappy change to help treat and prevent nappy.
