In brief: Depends

Diaper rashes have several causes, the commonest being due to infrequent changing.
If there is a strong odor of ammonia, that is a clue. A yeast infection is another cause. I would advise that you see your pediatrician.

In brief: See below

If you are certain it is yeast, using lotromin or Lamisil (terbinafine) will clear the rash.
Apply twice a day until rash has resolved.
