Nappy Rash is a skin condition, usually a result of wearing a wet or dirty nappy for too long. Prolonged dampness, friction and contact with ammonia found in urine can irritate sensitive baby skin. Nappy Rash appears as a red, raw and scaly rash, and is usually quite uncomfortable. Cradle Cap is another skin condition which only affects babies under the age of four months. Typically appearing like a bad case of dandruff on a newborn’s scalp, Cradle Cap is characterised by white or slightly yellow scales or scabs, and is usually a result of excess oil production by skin glands around the hair follicles.
