I have a 1 month old baby with very sensitive and fair skin. There are rashes all over the body including the face. It makes the skin dry and itchy.
My baby also have nappy rashes due to unsuitable diapers - the bottom is red and the skin is peeling.
I do need your suggestion regarding the best diapers and cream or ointment brands that are suitable for my 1 month old baby.
Thank you very much.

Hi mama athiya
Congratulations on your new baby!
For dry skin, it is best to use a baby friendly mousturiser like Cetaphil or QV or Dermaveen lotion from head to toe.
As for nappy rash, it is best to use Zinc Oxide/ Bepanthen. Its important for nappy rash that this be applied thickly and frequently.
If there is no improvement in 2-3 days, then please see your doctor to ensure it is not a fungal rash.
