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. You can also try an over-the-counter antifungal like Clotrimazole cream 3 times a day and see if that works. Yeast rashes are usually very red, itchy, and spread with "satellite" small red bumps away from the rash center. Good luck. ...Read more

Anti fungal: You need an anti fungal cream. Diaper rashes come from the same type of organism as jock itch and athletes foot. Using a steroid cream alone will not cure it.

I can't speak specifically about the use of Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) for acne - but if it helps you then use it. ...Read more

Rashes cannot be diagnosed on the phone. ...Read more

Stop using diapers!: Diaper rash is not caused by urine or by stool, it is caused by diapers. Changing frequently and changing brands can help.

If the rash is already severe, you will need help from your babies doctor. ...Read more
