DS has had a yeast rash for the last 9 days or so. We went to the doctor 8 days ago and was diagnosed with yeast. She gave us some homeopathy and I've been putting some antifungal cream on 3x/day since then. The rash started on his penis and scrotum, just a couple tiny areas. I put the cream all over his diaper area, but it still spread....now it's down the inside of his thighs a bit (just an inch or so) and around the front of his diaper area. It went away on his penis but then last night I noticed a few new dots of it there again. Ugh! If it's not much better by Monday we'll go back to the doc.
I have been letting him have lots of pants-free time around the house, at least an hour a day a few times. He gets a bath most days, and I have been washing all laundry in boiling water. Also washing all our hands a little more often than usual. I tried a blow dryer at dipe changes but it freaked him out.
I know I could give him yogurt but he hasn't been wanting any! I have probiotic caps, and you're supposed to sprinkle it on their food, but he eats very inconsistently and mostly just snacks, kwim? Those caps are super expensive and I really don't want to waste them, which I am sure would happen. Do they make liquid probiotics for babies??
Sooooo, anyone BTDT? What finally healed your baby's yeast infection/rash? Any tips I haven't come across? Also once it clears how to prevent it coming back? I know loads of people have a neverending cycle of yeast infections, and we don't want that.
