Infections of the buttocks in children.. Sores, crusts, or blisters with pus in them

Infections of the buttocks in children:

the reasons:

The causes are most often caused by exposure of the buttocks and buttocks to substances secreted by the body, such as urine or heavy urine. Where the child's skin is delicate and sensitive to secreted substances, which contain toxic acids and enzymes that contribute to the purification of this skin.
These concerns occur, especially during the period of eruption of teeth, or when infection with bacterial diseases.
And obviously when the diapers are not changed regularly.

We also point out that the materials used for cleaning, such as soap and scented wipes, contain preservatives and perfumes that may irritate the skin.
In the same context, there are ointments circulating in the market that can disturb this condition.

On the other hand, the moisture resulting from this closed environment and the lack of airtight drying. Especially in the folds, they can be other causes of inflammation.
There are many other diseases, such as psoriasis and jaundice... less common, that can cause these infections.


  • Prevention is by avoiding exposure to substances that contribute to sputum by changing diapers regularly, especially in cases of diarrhea and during the period of eruption of teeth.
  • It is recommended to use only water to clean the child.
  • Avoid scented materials and scented soaps. Especially the scented napkins.
  • Dry well to avoid moisture that may cause infections and germs.
  • Using Crème Barrière, which plays the role of a barrier between the sensitive skin of the child and the acids that cause inflammation, especially during the period of eruption of teeth. And also at night, when the duration of the diaper is prolonged.
  • These ointments must be special in terms of composition and effectiveness.

When should you visit the doctor?
