When babies wear diapers their skin can be in contact with urine for long periods of time. This warm, moist area of the skin will allow bacteria and fungus to grow very quickly. The skin becomes red and can even crack or bleed. By applying silver gel to the diaper rash you will be able to kill the cause of the diaper rash in the first two hours. The redness and pain can be remedied in as little as five minutes in mild cases.To prevent diaper rash, you can spray a thin layer of structured silver on the inside of the diaper and then allow it to stand for about two minutes. This approach can also be used in children’s socks to prevent athlete’s foot.
