    small red pimple like rash on the buttocks
    k12s10 posted:
    My almost 3 year old daughter has a small red pimple like rash on her buttocks. I have soaked her in oatmeal baths, lubed her up with zinc oxide creams and used Aveeno lotion. I don't know what else to do. It does't bother her, so I don't want to visit the pediatrician or dermatologist unless it doesn't go away.

    It could be a yeast infection. You can try lotrimin on it or you might need an Rx for nystatin.

    I agree with PP that it sounds like yeast. You can buy the OTC creams (monistat, etc) and apply it to the area. You may also try yogurt if you can get her to eat it. I have had good luck with mixing water and powdered oatmeal (put it through the blender or food processor) and applying it to severe diaper rashes if it does start to bother her. Not sure if she is potty trained or not, but keeping her dry with frequent diaper changes will help too.

    I think that I will try the monistat. Skye lives on yogurt, so that isn't helping. She is potty trained, but has been a bit lazy lately while she's playing or watching SpongeBob or Dora, ofcourse.

    Eating yogurt is helpful but you also need her to cut back on sugars and probably wheat and dairy too, if you think it's a major yeast issue

    DD has that same pimple... she wears pulls up at night and thats the only thing i can think of.. .as soon as she wakes up we take it off... but it seems like to me it appears after she's woke up wet. (Most nights she wakes up dry)
