Nappy Rash Treatment

Nappy rash is a generalised term that covers irritation to the skin in the nappy region.  Most commonly it will cover the genital area, buttocks and folds of the thighs.

What does it look like?

If your baby has nappy rash you will know!  The skin will be red and inflamed and can often have little pimples.

What causes it?

Prolonged dampness of the skin and irritation of urine and faeces to the area.

How can you treat nappy rash?

  • Change your babies nappy regularly and do not leave them for prolonged periods with soiled nappies.
  • Let your baby's bottom have as much 'air' as possible, i.e. periods of time without a nappy on.  Leaving the nappy off for short periods during the day will dramatically help the healing process.
  • Choose a nappy rash cream that is made with natural ingredients with soothing and prevention properties.
  • Avoid wipes that irritate your baby's skin, especially ones that contain alcohol.  There are natural ones on the market or have a look at our homemade nappy wipe recipes for making your own.
  • If you are using reusable nappies wash them in mild soap and rinse well.

Is it my fault my baby has nappy rash?

Unfortunately even the most diligent nappy changing Mum may have a baby who experiences this problem.  It is very common particularly when teething, and some babies with sensitive skin are more prone then others.  Follow our top tips and you will be able to manage the nappy rash and minimize any discomfort for your baby.

  • World Psoriasis Day: Take Part with a Testimonial

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin

    World Psoriasis Day takes place on the 29th of October each year and serves as a podium for people to experience psoriasis to offer their accounts of living with the condition. Though one of the first skin diseases to be recognised psoriasis continues to be misunderstood and those that experience it discover large amounts of misinformation available. World Psoriasis Day is attempting to combat this confusion by encouraging those who experience psoriasis to post pictures of themselves with testimonials.

  • Hug a Vegan This September

    Many consider a vegan lifestyle to be very rewarding and it's certainly easier on our environment. Whether you're aiming to eat nothing that comes from an animal or ensure that you're not using products that use animal products or participate in animal testing, these are all elements that reduce cruelty and pollution. Recent studies have shown that methane from livestock accounts for more greenhouse gasses in the UK than our roads and trains combined! And animal testing accounts for thousands of animals that are forced to endure discomfort for human cosmetic needs. This is why Katharine Botanicals offers a wide range of products that are entirely vegan.

    As the internet makes it easier for conscientious shoppers to make ethical choices, it's also easier than ever to discover the benefits of making these choices when you purchase. In fact, PETA recently held a celebration just for vegans called "hug a vegan day". Last year it was all about vegetarians and now vegans are getting the love from PETA! The official hug a vegan day was held last Friday on the 27th of September but we feel that there is all the time in the world to show your appreciation for all the good things nature has to offer.

  • Sunlight and Benefits to Psoraisis

    Whilst the recent weather has been somewhat unpredictable, we can also say that this has been one of the brightest summers that the UK has enjoyed for some time. This is an excellent opportunity for suffers of psoriasis to enjoy sunlight and the vitamin D that comes with it. Vitamin D and ultra violet light are both completely natural elements that can help to soothe skin suffering from psoriasis. Ultra violet light is already used as a medical treatment by many doctors, where synthesised UVB rays are created with sun lamps. Injections are also utilised to encourage the skin to soak up even more of the beneficial UV light but I’m sure most would rather a natural course of sunbathing. This bright sunshine gives many who live with psoriasis the chance to enjoy a free and completely natural course of UV light and all the benefits that come with it.
