In brief: Diaper rashes, yeast

Children are prone to yeast infections in the diaper region as a result of illness, recent antibiotic use, frequent diarrhea or chronic moisture under the diaper or underwear. Its usually appears as red itchy bumps, occassionally with fissures, inflammation and tenderness.
These rashes do not improve with typical diaper rash creams (antifungal creams are used for treatment).
