Differentiating Diaper Rash from other Diseases

Other rashes that occur in the diaper area include seborrheic dermatitis and atopic dermatitis. Both seborrheic and atopic dermatitis require individualized treatment; they are not the subject of this article.

  • Seborrheic dermatitis, typified by oily, thick yellowish scales, is most commonly seen on the scalp (cradle cap) but can also appear in the inguinal folds.
  • Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is associated with allergic reactions, often hereditary. This class of rashes may appear anywhere on the body and is characterized by intense itchiness.
