Heat Rash: Overheating can lead to tiny red bumps on your baby's skin. Heat rash is often seen during hot weather.
Diaper Rash/Fungal infection: This is one of the most common types of baby skin rashes. It occurs when a baby's delicate skin is exposed to moisture and irritation from urine and feces
Bacterial infection: It is caused by bacteria infecting the skin, and the body responds by sending white blood cells to fight it. The dead bacteria, skin, and white blood cells build up and pus is formed.
Allergic Reactions: Babies can be sensitive to certain materials in clothing, detergents, or skincare products, leading to allergic reactions and rashes
The symptoms of baby skin rashes can vary depending on the cause, but common signs include:
Keep Baby's Skin Clean and Dry:
Maintain good hygiene by gently cleaning your baby's skin during diaper changes and baths. Change diapers every 3-4 hours. Try using Reusable cotton diapers, they are safe for your baby’s skin as well as the environment. Pat the skin dry instead of rubbing to prevent friction and irritation.
Dress your baby in weather-appropriate clothing to prevent overheating, which can lead to heat rashes. Ensure that the baby's room is at a comfortable temperature for sleep.
If your baby is on a solid diet, be mindful of any food allergies that might trigger skin reactions. Consult with a pediatrician if you suspect a food allergy.
Choose Sustainable Clothing:
