Diaper Rash Advisor: Detection
Unfortunately, no matter how well you care for your baby, diaper rash can still occur from time to time. Diaper rash begins when trapped moisture and friction begin to irritate the skin. The irritation continues over time, and the harsh urine and stool inside a soiled diaper can make the situation worse. Diaper rash is not only uncomfortable for baby, but if it is left unattended, or doesn't resolve on its own, it can even lead to infection.

Diaper Rash Advisor: Correction
Even the most carefully cared for babies can get a diaper rash from time to time. Experienced moms say that baby's teething, exposure to new foods, and use of antibiotics can lead to diaper rashes. And any time your baby has prolonged exposure to diaper irritants (such as overnight) or it becomes warm and moist in your baby's diaper (such as on a hot, humid summer day) the risk of him or her experiencing a diaper rash is greater.

If your baby does get a diaper rash, the following steps can help correct the rash and ensure your baby gets back to his/her comfortable, smiling self:

Balmex Tips to Help Correct Diaper Rash

  • Change your baby's diaper as soon as possible after it becomes wet or soiled.
  • Use clean warm (not hot) water to gently wash baby's diaper area and use a squirt bottle or bulb syringe to apply the water. The goal is to avoid extra rubbing of the skin.
  • Gently pat baby's bottom dry, avoiding rubbing the skin. Allow the area to further air dry to eliminate as much moisture as possible.
  • Apply a thick layer of Balmex Zinc Oxide Diaper Rash Cream to all affected areas to form a protective layer on baby's skin.
  • Diaper your baby, making sure the diaper is not too tight to help lessen diaper friction and increase airflow to the irritated skin.

Similar to rash prevention, the key to correcting a diaper rash is to keep your baby's skin as clean and dry as possible, and protect it from further exposure to irritants. If your baby's rash persists after 7 days of treatment, if it spreads, or if it otherwise worsens, call your baby's pediatrician.

Diaper Rash Advisor: Protection
Diaper rash is actually the common name for several different types of rashes that can occur on your baby, and is typically found in the diaper region. There are many causes of diaper rash including friction (typically from diaper), exposure of the skin to irritants like urine and feces, allergies (such as to foods), and others. Protecting your baby from diaper rash means protecting your baby's skin from the most common causes of diaper rash, typically contact with urine and feces or diaper friction.

Though there is no sure fire way to guarantee your baby will not get a diaper rash, there are several things you can do to significantly reduce the risk of your baby suffering from an uncomfortable diaper rash. Most of these tips can be summed up to keeping your baby's skin clean and dry, and making sure areas exposed to friction and irritants are always covered with a skin protectant like Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment.

Balmex Tips to Help Protect Against Diaper Rash

  • Change your baby's diaper as soon as possible after it becomes wet or soiled.
  • Clean your baby's diaper area thoroughly after each bowel movement.
  • Dry baby's skin fully before putting on a new diaper. Consider a powder, if necessary, like the new Balmex Prevention Baby Powder.
  • Apply a thin layer of Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment with every diaper change, especially at bedtime, and any time when your baby's exposure to a wet diaper may be prolonged.
  • Don't secure diapers so tightly that there is no room for air to circulate. Diapers and clothing should fit somewhat loosely.
  • Introduce only one new solid food at a time, and wait a few days between introductions.

Should your baby develop a diaper rash, continue to follow the above tips to keep it from getting worse, and refer to the diaper rash Correction section for advice. If the rash persists after 7 days, spreads or otherwise worsens, call your baby's doctor.

Change wet or soiled diapers promptly. Cleanse the diaper area and allow to dry. Apply cream liberally as often as necessary, with each diaper change, especially at bedtime or anytime when exposure to wet diapers may be prolonged.

About Balmex

Chattem is a Chattanooga, Tennessee, producer and marketer of over-the-counter healthcare products, toiletries, dietary supplements, topical analgesics, and medicated skin care products. Originally named the Chattanooga Medicine Company, the company’s brand portfolio holds twenty-two brands including Gold Bond, Flexall, IcyHot, Bullfrog Sunblock, Sun-In, Pamprin, Dexatrim, Aspercreme, and Selsun Blue. Two-thirds of Chattem’s products are produced by the company at its Chattanooga production facilities with the remaining produced by third-party producers. The company is a subsidiary of the French multinational pharmaceutical company Sanofi.

The company’s brands are sold nationally through mass merchandiser, drug and food retailers. In 2005, 70% of all sales by the firm were made through its top ten customers, which include Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and Kroger. Sales to Wal-Mart constituted 36% of Chattem’s total sales in 2005. Chattem supports these sales with a forty-five-person sales force broadcast media advertising. Chattem has market penetration in the United States, Europe, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

Chattem was founded by Zeboim Cartter Patten as the Chattanooga Medicine Company in 1879. The company incorporated in 1909 and has remained in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to this day. The firm adopted Chattem as its name and went public in 1969. Chattem’s top and bottom lines grew significantly from 1989 through 1992. The source of this growth was the company’s strategy of purchasing under-marketed consumer brands and aggressively marketing those already in its portfolio. In 1993, Chattem experienced a 14% decline in sales as a result of the loss of Warner-Lambert’s Rolaids business. To fund a one-time special dividend in 1994, $75 million in high-yield bonds were issued.
