Abstract:  Diaper rash, of which there are many types, is believed to result from a combination of several factors. Because of the bacteria that can be introduced to a simple diaper rash, without immediate and proper care, the condition may worsen rapidly. This article defines diaper rash; lists the types of diaper rash; discusses the most common preventions, causes, and treatments; provides formulations; and provides a list of suggestions for parents to assist them in the daily prevention of diaper rash. This topic is another shining example of how a compounding pharmacist, working closely with a physician/pediatrician, can help parents provide the best treatment options for their infant.
