You can do several things to prevent diaper rashes in the first place. First, it is important to keep the diaper area clean, which can make it feel uncomfortable for your baby. Always change your baby’s diaper as soon as he urinates and passes the stool. Next, clean the affected area with a soft cloth and water; you may use a squirt bottle for the most sensitive areas. Once the area is dry, you can apply a protective ointment or lotion. It will act as a barrier between the diaper and the child’s skin and help prevent the rash from recurring.
