My daughter has complained of "diaper rash" for weeks now. i always check her but find no "diaper rash". she insists on cream so i indulge her. all along i have thought she was jelouse of her baby sisters and just wanted to be like them. today in the shower she was washing herself with some baby soap and was telling me "ow, it hurts, my diaper rash. i used to much soap" i made her lay down so i could look which is a battle. her vagina isnt read on first glance but inside it is definately red. i dont know what it is. maybe yeast infection. i figured it wouldnt hurt to treat her naturally for one just in case. i know what i do for me but what can i do for her. and what kind of ointment should i use on her labia area??

I dont want to take her the doctor because if she wont open her legs for me i know she wont for anyone else. I had similar problems in that area when i was little due to allergies to soaps so i am usually very carefull about not having any soap in her baths when she plays and washing her at the end in the shower.

any suggestions?
