ABSTRACT

Diaper dermatitis is one of the most common skin conditions in neonates and infants. In infants diaper dermatitis is one of the leading causes of stress and discomfort. Physicians and parents and the care givers of the infants do not report many cases of diaper dermatitis because they resolve after a few days without the need for medical treatment. Objective: This study was designed to assess the knowledge of mothers on diaper dermatitis and to find the association with selected variables. Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted among 100 mothers of infants between the age group 0-12 months, attending selected hospitals of Mangaluru by non-probability purposive sampling. The data was collected using a valid semi structured knowledge questionnaire. The data was collected from January 2017 to March 2017. Findings: Majority of the study population (54%) had average knowledge on diaper dermatitis and it was independent with the socio demographic variables (p>0.05). Conclusions: This study revealed that mothers had average knowledge on diaper dermatitis. Interventions such as educational/ awareness programmes need to be conducted which will in turn help the mothers to gain knowledge on child care.

Keywords: Diaper Dermatitis, knowledge, infant, mother.
