Chaffing

 

Chaffing is caused mainly from irritation of the skin. And is mainly due to the rubbing of clothes, particularly rough napkins or woollens against the skin or vigorous efforts at cleaning the baby after he has passed a stool.

Sometimes, it may occur in areas which are moist like Chaffing results from irritation of the skin, the folds of the neck, axillae and groins, particularly in plump babies.

It can be easily treated by keeping the part dry, keeping the baby cool in summer, using talcum powder, and using softer material for napkins. A soothing cream will also be useful.
