Azole resistance?: A small percentage of vaginal yeast infections are caused by Candida types resistant to the most commonly used yeast treatments (the "azole" drugs -- miconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole, etc). Return to your doctor to confirm the diagnosis; if yeast is reconfirmed, ask about alternate treatments, such as nystatin, caspofungin, or flucytosine. ...Read more

Keep in mind that to diagnose your infant accurately, we'd need to know his age, health status, & what has and hasn't worked. Actually seeing the rash helps us too! ...Read more

A: A rash that has been treated with all these therapies is very difficult to make suggestions for further therapies without seeing the rash. I would have expected a typical diaper dermatitis due to yeast to have cleared with the ketoconazole. I would be hesitant to use a stronger steroid under a diaper. I would suggest making an appointment with your pediatrician or a dermatologist. Emergency room doctors are generally not use to treating diaper rashes. Rashes just have to be seen to diagnose accurately and treat appropriately. ...Read more
