Causes of Diaper Rash Chloe: Hi doctor Jim I’m Chloe. Oh no! I just, just made a poopy Doctor Jim, how long before it gives me a rash? Dr. Jim Sears: Wow, Chloe you look really worried about that and I would be too. If you’re, I’m probably sitting on a poppy diaper and I don’t want to get change. Dr. Travis Stork: But yeah! Dr. Jim Sears: Most diaper rashes are caused by skin irritations from diapers that rubbed against the skin or fit too tightly. But if you’re left in wet or dirty diaper for a long time that will cause a rash too, so the key to tell your mommy to keep you clean, cool and dry and change you diaper often. And maybe she might even let you run around without it sometimes to let things air out. Dr. Travis Stork: Yey! Dr. Jim Sears: That was nudy, Chloe.
