Dr. Pamela Lindor
Pediatrics 32 years experience
Yes: Thrush is a generally mild infection of the mouth (lips, gums, tongue and inside the cheeks) caused by a yeast. Babies with thrush will also sometimes develop a yeast type diaper rash as well. Consult your baby's pediatrician to confirm these diagnoses and for treatment.

Should I be concerned about a bumpy crusting rash on my vagina while pregnant?

Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: This should be mentioned to the doctor at the next OB visit. It may be nothing concerning, but one possibility for a "bump" that forms a small blister that then has a crust is herpes. Other possibilities can be infected hair follicles or yeast. If it is herpes, it could change your delivery plan or require antiviral medications during pregnancy.

Yes: This type of rash is commonly known as erythema toxicum, or etox, and is sometimes mistaken for "flea bites." it generally comes and goes for the first few weeks of life. They do not bother your baby, and no treatment is required. If the spots look like blisters, your infant isn't feeding well or appears ill, they need to be examined.

Check with your PCP: The risk is very low when using ketoconazole in pulsed therapy (once per week for an extended period of time). Your risk of developing a problem with any drug depends on your particular constellation of medical problems. As long as you don't have a predisposition to developing liver damage and your doctor monitors you during treatment, you should be fine. Check with your doctor.
