Fungal Nappy Rash

Nappy rash is a very common condition that most babies will get at some point. It is an irritation of the skin usually caused by a wet or dirty nappy touching the skin for too long.

The condition can also be caused by a fungal infection due to dampness inside the nappy. This is commonly caused by Candida albicans, leading to the condition being termed candidal nappy rash or nappy candidiasis. When a baby's skin is damaged by the irritants in a dirty nappy, it is more likely that candida albicans will overgrow, causing fungal nappy rash. A nappy rash caused by a fungal infection can be particularly unpleasant for a baby as it can sting the skin when the nappy is soiled.

In cases of fungal nappy rash, the area of skin will be inflamed, with spots (satellite lesions) around the edges. The infection will be bright red and also present in the folds of the skin. Candidal nappy rash is a fungal infection so it is important to treat it with an antifungal product. Below, we have a selection of antifungal products that will help you treat, heal and soothe your baby's condition. If you baby's nappy rash is non-fungal, you will find a range of nappy rash treatments on our main nappy rash page.
