Watch for diaper rash and keep diaper area clean and dry. Use medication as prescribed your pediatrician. If the thrush is difficult to treat, recurrent and/or there are problems with diaper rash, discuss immunologic testing, but usually this is a common infection during infancy, which can be treated.
