I really think my DD might have a yeast rash. At first I thought it was normal diaper rash, only pretty bad so I put her in sposies and was using Method diaper cream on her. It has gotten a little better on some parts, like around her anus but I don't see much difference around her vulva/leg area.<br><br>
So, how do you treat yeast rash? Do you use an aniti-fungal cream? Which one (specific brand names would be nice). I thought she had this last weekend but when I tried to talk to the pharmacist about what I should use she didn't have any info for me. It doesn't really seem serious enough to warrant a pedi appt.<br><br>
Oh and I know how to treat my diapers, I just need info on how to treat the rash, thanks!

Try coconut oil (you can buy it in the baking section of the natural foods department). CO is really amazing stuff. It has anti-fungal, antimicrobial and antiviral properties. Just smear it on like you would any other cream.

GrapeFRUIT seed extract (GSE) diluted on a wet cloth. Works wonders. You can also put it in a bath. Tea Tree Oil works as well, but GSE is stronger.

This soap is awesome stuff. The doctor told us to use Lotrimin, which only reduced the infection by about half. This soap cleared it up 100% within a couple of days. I've used on my own yeast infections, too, and as long as they aren't the deep internal kind, it works great.

i used an over the counter anti fungal cream (neopsporin anti fungal) twice a day and used lanolin the other times. worked in a couple of days. We are prone to yeast at my house. I hope it clears up soon!

get an antifungal cream. I am a nurse and we deal with yeast occassionally, and the antifungal cream works the fastest.<br><br>
And get your doc to look at it. It may be something else too, and best to get it treated sooner rather than struggling for a day or 2 extra.
