Video 1: Halibut and diaper rashes
The products to apply in the diaper area, also known as barrier creams, serve to form a protective shield on the skin. The cream should limit contact with irritating substances, such as feces and urine, and friction with the diaper, allowing for natural regeneration. If they speed up the recovery process, so much the better.
Taking care of inflammation
Inflammation of the skin in the diaper area, called, is a common problem, especially during the first year of life. It can reach the buttocks, the perineum region (between the anus and the sexual organs), the lower abdomen and the thighs.
The environment created in this area is conducive to the development of injuries: in addition to contact with irritating substances from feces and urine, the skin is in constant friction with the diaper, favoring the rupture of tissues. High humidity and temperature due to poor air circulation aggravate the problem and allow the growth of microorganisms. Heat, in turn, dilates the vessels and causes inflammation. In most cases, the skin recovers in 2 or 3 days, if you have the necessary care.
In case of dermatitis, change your diaper more often, wash your skin, dry it carefully and use a protective product. In general, it is recommended to apply a thick layer of cream in order to form a physical barrier between the skin, the diaper and irritants.
To prevent your baby from suffering from dermatitis:
- keep the tail dry, avoiding contact with feces and urine;
- change the diaper whenever the baby gets it. Newborns, hourly, and for the rest, 3 or 4 hours;
- avoid wipes, shower gel or soap;
- when possible, clean the baby with cotton just soaked in warm water;
- do not clean the baby with a part of the diaper even if it is new;
- if you use cotton diapers, wash them with baby detergent and do not iron too much, as the hard fabric can damage the skin.
- avoid powders, such as talc, with zinc oxide, cornstarch or kaolin, as these can clump together in wounds, triggering an infection or delaying healing. If you use them, keep them away from the child's face to prevent possible chemical pneumonia by inhaling particles. Painkillers for external use, camphor and eucalyptol, are not recommended, as they can aggravate the problem.
Ingredients to avoid
- Babies need few hygiene products (the less the better). Its composition should not alter the balance of the skin, nor expose it to substances that may cause allergies. Therefore, the use of perfumes and some preservatives, such as benzyl alcohol, should be avoided or reduced to a minimum in baby products.
- Choose a product with zinc oxide or dexpanthenol, ingredients capable of protecting the skin's surface.
- Read the labels carefully and prefer products without allergenic ingredients and with the fewest preservatives. This recommendation is particularly important in cases where the baby has very sensitive skin.
- Propylparaben and butylparaben, two preservatives, have recently been banned in products intended for the diaper area. None of the tested products include them.
- Do not give too much importance to claims like "dermatologically tested", "without parabens" or "hypoallergenic". These indications do not mean that the products are safer than the rest.
