Symptoms of Nappy Rash

Nappy rash is a common irritation for babies that have their delicate skin covered by nappies. It can develop because of rubbing and increased moisture due to nappy wearing, when the skin is in prolonged contact with stool and urine. This creates a perfect environment for the development of further irritation in the form of an infection caused by the overgrowth of the yeast Candida, causing a Candidal nappy rash.

These symptoms are signs of Candidal nappy rash:

  • Severe, bright red elevated patches with fine peripheral scale in the nappy region, especially in the skin folds around the groin and tops of the thighs
  • Vesicules (like a small, raised cyst or fluid-filled blister) and pustules around the rash
  • Lasts three days or more, despite home treatments
