The Easiest Way to Keep Diaper Rash at Bay

lifestyle-article-6-banner

Diaper rash can make your baby fussy and uncomfortable. To keep nappy rash at bay, practice frequent diaper changing, maintain good hygiene practices and use a diaper cream that provides triple action protections.

One of the skin conditions an infant may suffer from is diaper dermatitis, more commonly known as diaper rash. Though it seems like a simple skin problem, it makes you feel stressed as a parent when your precious little one helplessly cries because of those small red bumps on your baby’s bottom. Diaper rash can really make a baby fussy and uncomfortable.

According to an article on diaper dermatitis published in Pediatric Dermatology journal, there are different factors causing diaper rash. Primarily, your baby’s skin in the diaper area is susceptible to irritation because of prolonged exposure to urine and feaces. Another factor is prolonged and excessive humidity that may be caused by infrequent diaper change. Moreover, factors such as frequency of urination and defecation, hygiene practices, products applied to the skin, type of diaper used, diet, and medication may cause and worsen diaper rash.

Use diaper rash cream

Regardless of the cause, diaper rash is something that every parent wants to get rid of instantly. When your baby is inconsolable in the middle of the night due to diaper rash, you desperately search for something that will quickly relieve your child from the pain and discomfort. A simple and easy way out is applying diaper rash cream on your child’s affected area.

A simple and easy way out is applying diaper rash cream on your child’s affected area.

There are many diaper rash cream brands that you can choose from.  Each product has its unique active ingredients. Some contain zinc oxide, which seals out wetness while providing moisturizing and regenerative effects.  Other diaper cream brands contain Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Sunflower oil, which have anti-inflammatory, wound-healing and moisturizing effects.

Choose a diaper rash cream that rebuilds the skin's protective barrier

With the many options available nowadays, picking a diaper rash cream that will work best for your baby may be confusing. A guideline that you can use in searching for a good diaper rash cream is its ability to rebuild and maintain your baby’s skin barrier.

Your baby’s skin is sensitive and fragile as it still undergoes a maturation process until at least the first year of life

Your baby’s skin is sensitive and fragile as it still undergoes a maturation process until at least the first year of life. Based on an article on infant skin barrier published in Dermatology Research and Practice journal, skin barrier function is critical in preventing bacteria and other pathogens from entering your baby’s skin. This means that, if your baby suffers from skin conditions associated with skin barrier dysfunction like diaper dermatitis, your child is more susceptible to infections.

Thus, when your baby has diaper rash, it is important to treat the skin condition with a diaper rash cream that aids in the rebuilding of a healthy skin barrier. A diaper cream brand that helps reinforce a healthy skin protective barrier is Ceradan® Diaper Cream. It has a unique triple protective action that helps sooth, manage and prevent diaper rash.

Ceradan® Diaper Cream is enriched with essential skin lipids in optimal 3:1:1 ratio (ceramide, cholesterol, free fatty acids), which are critical in rebuilding and maintaining a healthy skin barrier. Additionally, it contains zinc oxide, which seals out wetness. Zinc oxide also has mild anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, regenerative, and moisturizing effects. This hypoallergenic diaper cream also contains octenidine, an antimicrobial that helps control yeast overgrowth.

It is best to apply the Ceradan® Diaper Cream after each diaper change. To make sure that the diaper area is clean, wash your baby’s bottom with a non-soap wash like Ceradan® Wash before applying the nappy cream.

To avoid getting stressed when your baby cries because of a nappy rash, make sure that there is always a good diaper rash cream at your home or inside your baby bag. However, prevention will always be better than cure, so don’t forget to change your baby’s diapers as frequently as possible, cleanse with a soap-free wash and apply a diaper cream that prevents rashes.

  • Lennix is super sensitive to mosquito bites not only does it swells up to the size of golf balls but when he scratches it he gets a bacterial skin infection which either lands him in hospital for IV antibiotics or heavy doses of oral antibiotics.

    So now whenever he gets bitten we immediately apply antiseptic solution and then put a bandaid on it so he wouldn’t be able to scratch.

    However the area around the bite becomes very dry and scabby possibly due to lack of air because we leave the bandaid on until the bite heals? We have been using @ceradan311sg soothing gel to help calm the skin so scratching is minimised to prevent further damage and it’s been working great! We ❤️ it!

  • Having eczema since I was 2 weeks old at birth, I’ve been on the search for products to keep the eczema under control. One thing I found useful before attending this session is that I “drink” moisturisers by the bottle and only came to know Ceradan since Marc was born. What I didn’t know was Ceradan is great for all ages, all skin types, especially dry, sensitive and eczema ones.

    The texture of the Ceradan Hydra moisturiser is very light yet is able to maintain the hydrated feeling for quite a while. And understanding from Dr Lynn that the key issue with eczema skin is to build up the skin’s barrier to minimise inflammation and infection, using a moisturiser with 3:1:1 ceramide dominant ratio is essential.

  • Honestly though, this 3 are my most used products from @ceradan311sg ? I love using the wash on Shayera & Zayne as it puts my mind at ease knowing that it’s soap free and safe for all skin types. As for the diaper cream, I use it on the kids even when there’s no rash to ensure that they’re protected. I used it on myself the other day when I had a minor rash on my hand and it helped! As for Ceramoz, it’s part mosquito repellent and part moisturiser! It’s the kiddos must have when they go over to my in-laws place which is a landed space, so you know how mosquitos love to party inside.?

  • We were introduced to Ceradan Skin Barrier Repair Cream by Marc’s paediatric when he started to develop a neck rash from all the sweating, milk and drool in between his neck folds. And later, when Marc started on his helmet therapy, the orthopaedic suggested using Ceradan Body Wash to help minimise any possibility of heat rashes and keep his skin moisturised.

    Having used Ceradan products on Marc for quite a while now, we do find that it’s a very gentle and baby-safe product. Upon using the Ceradan Skin Barrier Repair Cream, his neck rash was under control very quickly and it’s been very effective even for myself when I have eczema flare ups. Ceradan Regimen, which consists of Ceradan Skin Barrier Repair Cream and Ceradan Body Wash, is suitable for children as young as newborns and it has demonstrated clinically-proven efficacy in a study conducted by KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and National Skin Centre in Singapore to prevent 1 in 2 eczema flares in Singapore children.

    Since Marc loves swimming, and the chlorine in the water is very drying for the skin, I highly recommend Ceradan Body Wash to cleanse and maintain his gentle baby skin as hydrated as possible.

  • My baby is almost 2 months old, for the past weeks, I’ve been overwhelmed by frequent diaper changing and feeding my baby day and night. ?‍♀️?? Diaper rash is also every mum’s nightmare so choosing the right diaper cream is so important. Ceradan’s diaper cream is clinically proven and also recommended by KK Children & Women’s Hospital.

    It is hypoallergenic and 100% safe for newborn.

    I’m thankful to be able to try out this diaper cream for my baby with its unique triple protective actions◾Zinc oxide to seal out wetness ◾Octenidine to control yeast overgrowth ◾Contains 3:1:1 ratio of ceramic, cholesterol and free fatty acids to repair skin barrier.

    Thanks for keeping my baby’s skin rash-free!

    Ceradan is available at Watsons, Guardian and Unity stores.

  • Recommended by a pediatric dermatologist, my 4 YO girl has been using the Ceramoz for more than 2 years now. It is truly the best of both worlds, being able to moisturise and protect against mosquito bites at the same time!

    One big problem we had to deal with when my girl started childcare was mosquitoes ?. Doesn’t help when she had eczema and very sensitive skin. One bite on her and the bitten site would swell and become inflamed. Mosquito patches don’t work at all, and kid-friendly insect repellents either don’t work so well, or are too “spicy” – imagine the whines when she accidentally rubs her eyes after applying the repellent. When we were initially introduced to Ceramoz, we were a bit doubtful but later glad to learn that my girl don’t get bitten by mosquitoes that often anymore! (Truth he told, she only gets bitten when she forgets to apply it after her shower in childcare). It has proved its use so much that I use it now even during her non school days, 2+ years and counting!

    If you have a school-going child with eczema conditions, delicate skin, or is simply a mosquito magnet, Ceramoz will make your life better!
