Diaper Rash Products

Ouch! Diaper rash is a common infant problem and can make a baby's skin chafe, flake, and become sensitive. Applying one of the products below directly to the baby's bottom helps to prevent friction between skin and diaper and to provide a moisture barrier, allowing the rash to heal more quickly. The best preventive is to keep the area clean and dry. Other items for babies include infant formulas and teething products.
