The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it cannot find any cause linking Pampers with Dry Max with diaper rash.

 

Back in May, we reported that a number of parents were claiming Pampers with Dry Max were leaving burns or rashes on their babies. The CPSC received about 4,700 complaints.

 

The agency looked at the materials used, the construction of the diaper and heat and moisture retention issues. However after months of investigating the CPSC found no direct link.

The CPSC says some babies may be sensitive or develop rashes when they come in contact with the materials of this or other products. If your child does you should stop using the product immediately.

“While the investigation thus far does not find a link between the diapers and the health complaints received, CPSC recognizes the serious concerns expressed by parents. CPSC staff cannot rule out that there may exist a health concern for some babies, especially those babies that may be sensitive and develop rashes or other skin problems as a result of contact with the materials in this or other products,” said the CPSC.

Consumers are encouraged to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of a consumer product. You can find a form here

Additional information on diaper rash can be found on the American Academy of Pediatrics website.
