It is fairly easy to identify a diaper rash. More usually the rashes appear on the skin underneath the diaper area. Diaper rashes make skin red and irritated. It may appear all over your baby's bottom or genital area, or only in certain places.The affected skin may also be warm to the touch.
An infant or young child with a diaper rash may complain or cry during diaper changes and become more irritable especially when the skin in the diaper area is being cleaned or touched.
