Diaper rash therapy can be as simple as A, B, C, D, and E if you are able to identify generic diaper rash and exclude other causes. Components of diaper rash treatment include airing, barrier and other tropical product application, cleansing of the diaper area, diaper selection, and education of caregivers. Diaper rash therapy can be letter-perfect.
