A: A more specific description of the rash would be helpful.
If it's blister like or fluid filled bumps you should let your pediatrician take a look at it.
If it's red in the groin skin folds or maybe small pink/red dots then it may be yeast. In that case, try applying lotrim af 4-6 times a day. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) is an antifungal used for athletes foot treatment as well and you will find it on the foot product aisle.
If it's a beefy red color around her rectum then let your pediatrician take a look at it. ...Read more

Wash your toddler's hands frequently after crawling on the floor. Make sure nobody's fingers are inserted to his mouth. Wash/sterilize binkies/pacifiers daily (including bottle nipples). ...Read more

19 mo old w/ yeast infection for 2 wks. Tried nystatin, monistat, clotrimazole, zinc oxide, triple paste, maloxx, & no diaper. Not working, its worse.

"diaper rash": A number of conditions cause so called "diaper rash." I wonder about the duration of treatment rendered since 6 different creams, independently or in combination, have been used in 2 weeks period. If no response to Nystatin was observed in a week, the child is unlikely to have yeast infection unless immunocompromised. Seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and zinc deficiency are other possibilities. ...Read more
