What are tha causes of fungal rash on my baby's diaper area? How would i know its a fungal rash compared to ordinary rashes
Red and itchy: Everyone has yeast that lives on the skin. But yeast particularly likes places that are damp and moist - like under a diaper. Keeping the skin cool and dry will help.
