When you have a baby, diaper rash is almost inevitable at some time over the course of their diaper-wearing years. It seems as though some babies are more prone to it than others. If your baby struggles with diaper rash, I’ve got a diaper rash ointment for you to try out: Booty Goo.
According to Booty Goo, there are 3 main types of diaper rash (information sourced from the Skin Sake website):
Irritant Diaper Rash The most common type of diaper rash is the irritant rash. This is when the area affected is within the diaper. For instance, skin dermatitis on the thigh area is not considered an irritant type rash. Products containing zinc oxide should be able to address this problem because it will provide a barrier to allow healing. Causes of this type rash can include stool enzymes, soaps and detergents, and baby wipes.
Yeast Diaper Rash A yeast infection can also be the cause a diaper rash. Symptoms of this type include dry, reddish patches with defined edges, somewhat scaly or scab-like. Areas most susceptible to this type rash include the skin folds of the upper thigh. To treat a yeast infection rash, use a product with anti-fungal medication. Yeast thrives in warm, moist skin and should also be suspect when a diaper rash does not improve in a couple days from using an ointment for such. If the baby is, or has recently been, treated with antibiotics, this will increase the chances of a yeast infection as antibiotics reduce the body’s natural ability to fight infection by compromising the good bacteria.
Friction Diaper Rash Friction is also a type of diaper rash, although it originated from moisture. Skin wetness increases friction. Areas usually affected by friction are the waistband and elastic legs of the diaper, especially when they are too tight. When the skin layer is compromised, whether by friction or moisture, bacteria can enter the inflamed area causing an infection. This causes the treatment of common diaper rash to be more resistant.

Booty Goo sent some of their Diaper Change Ointment for us to try. Although my little man rarely gets a diaper rash, they do still, on occasion, happen. There are 2 things I really like about Booty Goo: it is very thick, so it gives excellent coverage on red, rashy skin and it has very little smell. As I mentioned, Jacob rarely gets a rash, but he did look a little red about a week ago. I rubbed some of this on his bottom before bed, and it looked great the next morning! If you have a baby struggling with diaper rash, I would definitely suggest giving Booty Goo a try!
