Battling car seat rash

Posted: Updated:

(KPRC) - There's no question car seats save lives, but some parents may have noticed red, itchy rashes on their children after long rides in the car.

What can make matters worse is a condition known as car seat dermatitis: Itchy, red rashes that flare up where the child's skin comes in contact with car seat material.

Mom Prakiti Kc said she's noticed.

"A little bit of rash, especially if it's very hot and humid and we travel a lot in the car because we travel from Atlanta to Houston sometimes," said Kc. "So in long trips, it really bothers him and he wants to get out of the car seat."
