Objective: Diaper rash is an irritating, common skin problem in newborns and young children and occurs in the skin rubbed by wet diapers and in the armpits due to heat, moisture and irritation. This experimental study was planned to investigate the effect of olive oil use on the healing of diaper rash in infants with first-degree diaper rash undergoing treatment in an infant ward.
Methods: The study conducted between September 2020 and December 2020 included 37 infants aged 0-24 months who were treated for any reason in the Infant Clinic of a medical school and had first-degree rash. The infants in the experimental and control groups were "treated with olive oil and X brand cream" respectively. The X brand cream and the effects of olive oil and X brand cream use on the improvement of diaper rash were compared.
