Irritant diaper dermatitis may be a generic term applied to skin rashes within the diaper area that are caused by various skin disorders and/or irritants.
Generic diaper rash or irritant diaper dermatitis (IDD) is characterized by joined patches of erythema and scaling mainly seen on the convex surfaces, with the skin folds spared.
Diaper dermatitis with secondary bacterial or fungal involvement tends to spread to concave surfaces (i.e. skin folds), also as convex surfaces, and sometimes exhibits a central red, beefy erythema with satellite pustules round the border.
