Is using talcum powder for babies as beneficial as you think?

Parents often have a habit of applying a small amount of talcum powder to babies after their bath with a hope that it can desiccate and have flavor attracting babies.

Talcum powder brings no advantages but lots of disadvantages

Although talcum powder is scented and can desiccate very well as the thought of many people, doctors advise you should limit or had better not use it for babies because this brings many implicit bad effects.

Talcum powder brings no advantages but lots of disadvantages.

Evidence shows that talcum powder contains ingredients and chemicals that cause problems for babies’ respiratory system and even make them contract dangerous pulmonary disease if using talcum powder in a long time and in wrong way.

Many parents suppose that talcum powder can prevent prickly heat effectively, but in fact currently there is no proof affirming this with respect to medicine.

So, maybe you should not apply talcum powder to babies after their bath, but instead of that, use dry towel or soft cloth to lightly dry babies, and you can get the same effect as using talcum powder without worrying about bad influence caused by it.

Not only babies but women also use talcum powder to apply to their ‘private parts’ to dry pudenda. This is so dangerous since experts show that frequently using talcum powder for ‘private parts’ will make women increase the risk of contracting ovarian cancer and easily have inflammation.
