Diaper rashes


Diaper rashes usually require several days to improve, and the rash may come back repeatedly.

Ayurveda gives some simple diet and lifestyle recommendation to help prevent the condition.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Introduce new foods one by one so that an allergy can be detected early
  • A healthy balanced diet for the breastfeeding mother is recommended.
  • She should avoid spicy foods and other foods that can give her baby a diaper rash because of sensitivity or allergies.
  • She can include more bitter herbs such as neem, manjista, haridra, and guduchi in her diet.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

Usually with some home remedies and tips, diaper rash can be treated successfully at home. Some of the steps include –

  • Keeping diaper area clean and dry.
  • Certain products, such as zinc oxide and petroleum jelly, work well to protect the skin from moisture. These can be applied after the region is cleaned and dried.
  • Increasing airflow by exposing the diaper region. The baby may be allowed to go without a diaper and ointment for short periods of time, perhaps three times a day for 10 minutes each time, such as during naps.
  • Avoiding airtight plastic pants and diaper covers
  • Until the rash clears up, giving the baby a bath daily.
  • Warm water is to be used with mild, fragrance-free soap
  • Cocoa butter, coconut oil or olive oil massage can help in relieving the pain
