Q21. What is the treatment for baby skin rashes?

A21. In many cases you can treat your baby’s skin rash at home. This means keeping your baby cool and comfortable and giving him/her Paracetamol or Ibuprofen is necessary.

Choose the special baby or junior versions of these medications or ask your pharmacist for advice. A skin rash often clears up by itself but if you are worried or unsure about how to treat it then speak to either your health visitor or GP.

Serious skin rashes or those which don’t respond to home based treatment will require medical attention.

Each of the individual skin rashes in this guide contains information about suitable forms of treatment.
