Nappy rashes are stubborn bacterial and fungal infections that have been tested to respond to colloidal silver.
The recommended dose is safe on diaper rash, and can clear up an infection quickly.
Irritant diaper dermatitis develops when skin is exposed to prolonged wetness, increased skin pH caused by urine and feces, and resulting breakdown of the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the skin.
This may be due to diarrhea, frequent stools, tight diapers, overexposure to ammonia, or allergic reactions.
In adults, the stratum corneum is composed of 25 to 30 layers of flattened dead keratinocytes, which are continuously shed and replaced from below.
These dead cells are inter-laid with lipids secreted by the stratum granulosum just underneath, which help to make this layer of the skin a waterproof barrier.
The stratum corneum’s function is to reduce water loss, repel water, protect deeper layers of the skin from injury, and to repel microbial invasion of the skin. In infants, this layer of the skin is much thinner and more easily disrupted.
Nappy rash occurs when there is excessive moisture between two opposing skin surfaces.
The key is the excessive moisture. As such, anything that keeps the skin surfaces dry will end the problem. (Wikipedia)
Silverlab Healing Cream creates an effective barrier as it has occlusive properties.
It is also antibacterial, anti-fungal and has anti-inflammatory properties. It may be used as a preventative or for restoring broken and damaged skin.
Symptoms: Redness in the nappy area, but not in the folds and wrinkles.
Causes: Inadequate nappy change.
Tips: Change the nappy at least 8 times per day, i.e. every 3 hours.
Cure: Colloidal silver gel or spray or cram to kill germs and prevent infection.
