Understanding and Treating Diaper Rash
Diaper dermatitis, commonly known as diaper rash, is an irritation of the skin covering the perianal area (groin, stomach, upper thighs, and buttocks). It occurs mostly in infants up until the age when they no longer wear diapers. It may also occur in the elderly or immobile and can become infected if not treated properly.
Urine breakdown is the common denominator underlying the various causes of diaper rash. Urinary wetness can raise the skins pH and compromise its protective ability, thereby rendering it more penetrable. With the skin in this somewhat damaged condition, stool enzymes or other irritants then damage the skin even further. The stratum corneum, the skins protective layer, made up of dead skin cells, can be easily breached by all of the aforementioned factors. With damage to the stratum corneum, yeast, fungus, and bacteria can easily invade the skin, making the rash more recalcitrant and less responsive to usual treatments.
Grandma El’s® Diaper Rash Ointment is Skin Soothing and Healing Ointment. This unique Pediatrician Tested product has been used by Grandma El since 1974 to successfully treat and heal diaper rash.
Grandma El’s® creates a skin softening, protective barrier which prevents wetness and stool enzymes from coming into contact with your baby’s bottom, while allowing the skin to breathe. Grandma El’s® promotes the growth of new skin collegen, which helps the healing process.
Grandma El’s® has put an end to the white, messy paste, lotions, and creams. Grandma El’s® knows that for the skin to heal, it needs to breathe. Other products coat the skin, and stop the skin from breathing, thereby slowing the healing process. Grandma El’s® formula lets your baby’s skin breathe as it protects.
Prevention is the best treatment for diaper dermatitis. It is important to keep your baby’s diaper area clean and dry at all times, and to apply a thin film of Grandma El’s® Diaper Rash Ointment with every diaper change. Should diaper rash symptoms appear, treating it immediately is imperative to assure your baby’s comfort, health, and happiness. Grandmaels.com
