Diaper Dermatitis

Variety of inflammatory disorders of the skin that occur on the lower aspect of the abdomen, genitalia, buttocks, and upper portion of the thighs initiated by a combination of factors, the most significant being irritation by the urine and faeces, occlusion and candida colonisation. Diffuse reddening of the skin with papules, vesicles, oedema, and scaling of the involved areas as well as psoriasiform lesions, secondary erosions, ulcerations and infiltrated nodules in more severe cases may occur. Diaper dermatitis peaks between the ages of 6 and 10 months.
