Simple Home Remedy for Nappy Rash

Nappy rash is common in children of all ages. Rashes sometimes occur in elders as well. The rashes happen when the nappy is not changed frequently and children remain wet for a long time. These rashes sometimes occur in elders, when they perspire a lot due to hot weather, or the clothes are not soft and comfortable.
