Diaper Rash Overview
Diaper rash is inflammation of the skin that appears on the skin under a diaper. Diaper rash typically occurs in infants and children younger than 2 years of age, but the rash can also be seen in people who are incontinent or paralyzed. Diaper rash is medically referred to as diaper dermatitis.
Almost every baby will get diaper rash at least once during the first three years of life, with the majority of these babies 9-12 months of age. This is the time when the baby is still sitting most of the time and is also eating solid foods, which may change the acidity of the bowel movements.
