my 18 month daughter has a really bad Yeast Diaper Rash, we went to the doctor and the stuff she was given is just not working, who has any tips or tricks weather they are just weird or crazy I have heard it so please as long as there is a chance to make this go away and so shes not in so much pain I am willing to try anything as long as it doesn't cause physical harm. The doctors are just no help. Maybe you can be. A friend told me to try Pro-Ex but walmart didn't have it last night, yes like I said it's weird since it's for well something different in a sense. But I need some other ideas. We have tried doctors non of them have been any help, so please don't tell me to take her to the doctor, I did that and tried other doctors. She was put on nystatin and that is not working, also she has been going diaperless for the past 2 days (I don't care about my rug as much as I do her and not being in pain). Please tell me you have some ideas.
We had to try different products until we found one that seemed to work. We use a petroleum based product on my son, typically just the store brand. I have heard warm baths are also effective. Have you tried switching diaper brands? Perhaps it's a reaction to the diaper or the diaper is not very good at keeping a wetness off the skin.
it has since gone away, but we can only use the brand we are using. For both my kids for some reason all other diapers except pampers make their skin break out. So we only will use pampers. Not going to try switching again after what happened to them. But what happened was that the yeast part had been treated and gone away, but the underlying rash didn't, because it wasn't being treated. Once we figured out that the yeast infection had been cleared and treated we using petroleum and the rash is 90% better.
