Diaper rash is quite commonly observed in babies. It can be a sign of low hygiene but also of some malaise, bad effect from teething etc.
How to Recognize the Symptoms
The skin around anus and buttocks is painful, fiery red and raw, possibly due frequent irritant stools. This is very common during dentition, in babies up to six months, even to one year. Sometimes the inflamed area is raised due to infection with Candida microorganisms. In this case the baby will probably need a homeopathic remedy.
When neglected, the diaper rash may extend to the genital region and inflame or ulcerate it. Sometimes the rash envelopes the entire lumbosacral area of the back; it makes the baby extremely restless, anxious and sleepless.
