Does changing diapers too often cause a diaper rash?
Hi, I am 23 years old. My son is 6 months old. I change his diaper every two to three hours. I noticed a diaper rash. Is this because of changing diapers too often? Does changing diapers too often cause a diaper rash?
@bhavya Hello, I had the same condition with my baby. A rash is not due to changing diapers too often but it is due to wet or infrequently changed diapers, skin sensitivity, and chafing. It usually affects babies, though anyone who wears a diaper regularly can develop the condition. it usually clears up with simple at-home treatments, such as air drying, and ointment. If your baby's skin doesn't improve after a few days of home treatment, talk with your doctor. Sometimes, you'll need a prescription medication to treat diaper rash.
