NEW YORK Reuters Health - Using wet wipes after going to the bathroom can be a less-than-soothing experience, according to a new report of four people who developed severe allergic reactions after using such products. Doctors have long known that many of the preservatives used in wet wipes can cause rashes, especially on irritated skin. But the authors of the new report, from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, singled out one chemical — called methylchloroisothiazolinone or MCI — as a cause of particular concern. He had been treated by several doctors without success and had to take a two-month leave from his job. Another man, who had psoriasis, automatically assumed the rash between his buttocks was a result of his disease.

Adult Diaper Rash
Diaper rash can affect anyone wearing diapers or incontinence briefs, including adults, babies, and toddlers. Symptoms in adults are the same as symptoms seen in babies and toddlers, and may include a pink-to-red colored rash, or peeling or irritated looking skin. Diaper rash is commonly caused by infrequent diaper changes, which can lead to irritation from chemicals found in urine and stool. It may also be caused by an allergic reaction, or a yeast or fungal infection.
Diaper rash is a common condition that can make a baby's skin sore, red, scaly, and tender. Most cases will clear up with simple changes in diapering. Also, starting new foods can change the content and frequency of a baby's poop, which can sometimes lead to a diaper rash.
