The second, the erythema of the fleshy parts - buttocks, lower abdomen, upper thighs, genital area - has only rarely a microbial cause. It results from a chemical or physical aggression such as excessive friction, and causes various irritations and redness. Its special location, limited to the area covered by the exchange, earned him the name of "dermatitis W". It can be handled easily with frequent changes and protection of the seat adapted.
