  1. 1. This Slide Show is brought to You by http://www.free-health-care.info
  2. 2. With so many illnesses and rashes that could strike a baby at any time, it is no wonder that all the rashes seem to look alike. But the fact is, they are not all alike as each is generally caused by different factors and each could end up needing special care and treatment. One of the less talked about rashes that occur in young children, mostly babies, is that of perianal dermatitis. Although it can occur in adults, most reported cases are that of babies still in diapers as a lot of moisture tends to get left for too long. The Facts About Perianal Dermatitis
  3. 3. The common term that a lot of doctors use when talking with parents is that of diaper dermatitis. But diaper dermatitis does not just mean perianal dermatitis, as there are actually four different presentations for diaper dermatitis. Out of the four different presentations of diaper dermatitis, perianal dermatitis is the second most commonly seen. This means that the rash that is taking place is limited to the anus area. A lot of newborns get this about having a bad case of diarrhea.
  4. 4. If you notice that your little one is suffering from what looks like perianal dermatitis, you should seek the help of your child's doctor. You should avoid trying self-treatment or medication as you could make the situation worse without realizing it or trying to. The first thing a doctor is going to explain is that you must take extra care to make sure that the diaper area remains dry and free from waste and urine. With each diaper change, you will need to apply a doctor prescribed or suggested ointment in order to help heal the rash and prevent it from coming back. How To Treat It
  5. 5. There may even be the suggestion to try avoiding using rubber or plastic pants as these can cause irritation. If there is a yeast infection that is causing the perianal dermatitis, then an anti-fungal cream will be prescribed for use. By taking action and following doctors orders, you will be sure that the situation clears up without fail. And by taking the appropriate steps needed, you are sure to prevent perianal dermatitis from coming back to your child.
  6. 6. You and your child will be happy that you took action and did the right thing, as this is something that causes a lot of pain for young children and something that they cannot prevent themselves.
