To those mamas who used gentian violet to cure a yeast rash, could you please share what worked!<br><br>
DD has been battling an ongoing rash since she started daycare nearly 4 weeks ago. We still haven't pinpointed the exact cause, though it's gotten better since the daycare provider agreed to change her dipes more often (she's in pockets). Anyhow, due to the rash's persistent nature, I suspected yeast, so I treated her with a diluted 1% gentian violet solution on her rash for 3 days. Did I do it long enough? The rash got much better with the gentian violet, but is now starting to worsen again, albeit much slower than before. Should I redo the gentian violet treatment, maybe for longer this time? HOw often should I apply it - every diaper change, or once a day? Should I combine it with some kind of rash cream?
