Common Diaper Rashes

Type of Rash


Contact Rash: appears flat and blotchy – even bright red.

Occurs when the skin comes in contact with an irritant - most often caused by chafing, bleach, strong detergent, fragrance or synthetic fibers like polyester fleece, microsuede or microfiber.

Ammonia Burn: looks like a carpet burn (may even blister) near or on the genitals.

Caused by prolonged exposure to urine.

Acidic Poop Rash: presents as a red ring around or near the anus.

Caused by acidic food like citrus fruits and berries or an allergy to food like honey, milk, eggs, gluten or shellfish.

Yeast Rash / Infection : appears as raised red bumps or red dots that look like acne or pimples.

Caused by antibiotics, citrus foods, dairy or gluten.

Eczema Rash: appears red, itchy and scaly and may also blister and ooze.

Note: Most diaper rashes should improve or disappear within 7 days. If the rash persists, spreads, is sensitive to the touch, blisters, bleeds or causes a fever, please contact a pediatrician immediately.
