Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem.
What kinds of wipes and diapers do you use?

We use an over the counter cream med likt monistat or equivalent, it sooths instantly and clears within a couple days.
I know it' ssystemic and we need to change our diet(did I mention i'm prone too), and my other daughter doesn't seem to get htem.
We used to bring her the the Dr. but since I've brought her so frequently the Dr has said you know how and what to do, just get it done.
Hope she feels better.
Melissa, First-time worry-warted mama!
dr said NOT TO USE baby powder with CORNSTARCH and/or not to use cornstarch at all
he told me the yeasts eat the cornstarch and make it worse
FYI, not sure if that helped or not
it was the OPPOSITE advice i got from my parents, who said to put cornstarch on diaper rash, but yeast is a little different than diaper rash, though look similar sometimes.
My dd & I learned about this the hard way. Several yeast diaper rashes.
- Worse with disposables, rarely ever with cloth. (I've heard that 'normal' diaper rash is more common with cloth, yeast more common in sposies. We stopped the occasional sposie for that reason, since dd is prone.)
-Thrives on water. Therefore we just blotted dry w/tissue or dry washcloth for wet diaper changes, and for poopies we used a cotton ball or soft cloth with only baby oil, no water. (Sounds weird but that's what ped. recommended, lol). Also did minimum baths and frequent changes during breakouts.
-Thrives on sugar. Ideally I would've taken all sugar possible from my diet as she was exclusively bf. But I was weak. Probably would've helped.
-When bad we did use Lotrimin, over-the-counter, tho for us was free w/prescription so we got one. Had to use for 3 weeks or something. Cleared it up right away.
I'm sure there are more natural/homeopathic remedies as well, we just have a regular ped though so that's what he gave us, & it worked.
Just thought I'd share.
