Found a Rash on your Newborn Baby?

When you are a new parent, finding a rash on your newborn baby is enough to send you into a panic. With so many rashes and skin conditions, it can be difficult to tell one from another. Therefore, it can be hard to determine the best way to treat it, whether it is a cream for baby rash, a change in products being used, or simply time for it to go away on its own.

On this page you’ll learn more about common types of baby skin rash, cream treatments and how to avoid further irritation.

Common problems

Find a rash on a newborn baby and the first thing you’ll need to do is determine what it is before you pick up any baby skin rash cream. Here are some of the most common rashes found on babies:

Dribble rash – resulting from excess saliva and often present when teething

Eczema – itchy, dry rashes that can be red, scaly and have small bumps

Cradle cap – usually appears on the scalp and presents as greasy, yellow crusts on skin

Milk rash – red rash that can have white bumps (similar to pimples) on the face

Inflammation – caused by irritation

Dry patches – dried out areas that may or may not peel

If you are looking for a cream for baby rash treatment that is made from soothing ingredients and free from nasties for your newborn, Baby by Sia’s Muti can help. Our Muti rash cream for baby skin conditions is an innovative, breathable balm that works to soothe skin whilst reducing redness and inflammation. It is free from nasties such as cortisone, parabens and chemical fragrances and safe to apply on the face. As well as a baby skin rash cream you can also do what you can to minimise dryness and maintain moisture by using a gentle wash that is soap free.

Often you will find that many skin conditions are due to something topical being applied to the skin, which can cause irritation, inflammation and redness. At Baby by Sia, we look at treating the cause of skin irritation rather than just the symptoms with our range of products that use natural, gentle ingredient that nourish, moisturise and soothe.
