What causes nappy rash?

The most common cause of nappy rash is irritation of the skin caused by wearing a nappy. In particular, prolonged exposure of the skin to moisture from urine and stools (poo) can inflame the skin. In some cases, infections or some health conditions can also contribute to the rash.
