Nappy Rash

What is nappy rash?

A common problem for babies between 0 and 24 months old is nappy rash – which if left untreated, can develop into a more serious skin problem. The characteristics of nappy rash include skin which appears red, chapped and sometimes spotty.

How to treat nappy rash:

  • Careful cleansing is imperative and fragranced bubble baths should be avoided. Botani’s Olive Soothing Cream Cleanser or Olive Cleansing Bar purify and soothe affected areas without further irritation.
  • Dry the area using a soft cloth or cotton wool.
  • Apply Phytoseptic Anti-Fungal Skin Cream after each nappy change.
  • Phytoseptic assists in the treatment by acting to prevent bacterial and fungal infections from harming babies’ skin.
  • Phytoseptic also possesses absorbent properties which help to keep the area dry.
  • Olivéne Repair Balm will help protect the area from further irritation, by forming a protective layer.
  • It is advised that wet or soiled nappies are changed regularly and the nappy area is exposed to air several times a day.

It is recommended that correct diagnosis is made by your medical or health practitioner. If symptoms persist, please consult your practitioner.
