Which is better for anal yeast. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) or monistat?

Equivalent . The Otc formulations are equivalent. Anecdotally, I have good luck with both. Buy generic and whatever is least expensive! .

My son's pediatrician told us to put lotrimin (clotrimazole) on his yeast all over his bottom twice a day. Since we have started it, it looks worse. He's 15 months.?

Rinse/air dry. The red strawberry dots are consistent with a candidal/yeast diaper rash which the treatment for with lotrimin af cream (aka 1%clotrimazole) is correct. If you son has more redness and excoriaton, leaving the diaper off and air drying or tub soaks in baking soda can improve things faster. Pat dry-rinse, but don't wipe hard. Barrier diaper creams can also help. Read more...
