Nappy rash is a self explanatory term, meaning a rash in the area covered by a baby’s nappy. More often than nappy rash can be related to the use of certain soaps, creams, and even certain nappies. Such products can interfere with the skins protective barrier, making it vulnerable to infection. The rash may be minor in which case you’ll observe red and inflamed skin, but in some severe cases ulceration can occur.

Parents will change approximately 4500 nappies for each of their children. When we think of this in terms of disposable nappies, thats an extra 4500 nappies, that will need to be disposed of.

Its a figure that will likely cause a significant environmental impact, due to the inherent lack of biodegradability of these items.
