    Diaper rash is the most common skin concern among infants; it affects approximately one in three babies.

    Diaper rash causes the skin on your baby’s bottom, and sometimes in his/her crotch and inner legs, to become red and sore.  Occasionally the skin can become blistery and infected.  In those cases your doctor may prescribe a medicated cream or ointment to reduce the inflammation and treat the infection.
