Nice article dear.. we need to be extra careful when it comes to be for our lo.. One part that I have reservations about is using baby powder. Most doc advise that powder should not be used especially if it's a girl.. in case of heat and summer problems take a pinch on your hand and gently rub in the folds so as to avoid infection but strictly no powder puff where there are chances of powder entering their nose , mouth or viginal area.. Some things that I have been following and have helped are: 1) Diaper free time - As much as is possible preferably after every diaper change. 2) Keep the area dry 3) After every poop, clean with cotton ball and oil. If lots messy then use luck warm water and muslin cloth or take your lo to bathroom under running water if old enough. Avoid wet wipes they may cause little burning even more if the delicate skin is already irritated. 4) Ezy nappy and Himalaya and desitin are good options for diaper rashes. In cases where you not sure or the lo is irritated please consult the ped asap. Thanks again dear for such a good piece of information.

As it goes more red and rashes become more prevalent, must see the doctor immediately and with that start some home remedies like mentioned above. summers ask for more care and concern for babies skin specially for the sensitive areas.

I had a similar experience.. Fungal infection would not go by its own.. you need anti fungal creams for that..
