Strep infection diaper rash

Common Questions and Answers about Strep infection diaper rash

infection

Hi, I too am suffering from a vaginal strep infection. I got it when I started having sex with a new partner. I have tried two rounds of antibiotics. The first round took it away and then it came back in a couple of months again. I have a lot of irritation and redness. I am taking a probiotic and Colloidal Silver to see if it will help. Both of these items can be purchased through a health food store. I've been taking it now for about two weeks.
I have been told it's because it was a drug induced rash and therefore no cream will help anyways. I would much rather still have strep throat than to have to live with this most itchy rash I have ever encountered. If there is anyone that knows how I can get rid of this horrible rash, please let me know!
I finally took him to the Dr and he had peri-anal strep. Yes, you can have anal strep. They culture it the same way as strep, but it had just traveled through the body and ended up there. Please call your Dr and take in your son to be checked for sure. Once we had the prescription, he was better in a matter of a day or two.
My 6yr old has developed a rash on her outer extremities sparring the trunk with pain for 3-4 wks. The rash developed April 17th, red speckled spots on legs within two days had inflamed like chicken pox. I took her to her paediatric that Monday who diagnosed her with scabies by just looking at her. We did the permetherin (sp?) cream treatment twice in a matter of 7 days - per doc's orders.
On February 23 was when we first really noticed my daughter's fever, although I had taken her in to see the doctor the week before because I suspected she may have had a UTI (she had been sticking her hands down inside her pants and diaper and rubbing herself quite a bit). The urine cultures came back negative for the UTI, and she completed a round of antibiotics. She then began running a fever with no other symptoms and we treated the fever with an alternating course of Motrin and Tylenol.
my 2 wk old son has such bad diaper rash, he has had it abotu a week and half, i have been using everything, desitin, butt paste, etc. it is so bad that now it looks like he has bumps or blisters up around the base of his penis, and like the skin is peeling on his bum and around his scrotum!!is this normal sounding for diaper rash in boys? any advise? dr. says try antifungal creams or powder. i've been told to stay away from OJ and tomato sauces bcuz of acid, any other suggestions?
(It used to work wonders on my baby's bottom when he got a diaper rash that had a yeast-infection foundation.) Give it a few days, and if it does nothing, then try the otc cortisone.
A garden variety yeast infection or diaper rash is far more likely. That said, no online provider can make a definite diagnosis. If you remain uncertain, you need to take her to her pediatrician. Since it's apparently a fairly severe rash, that might be a good idea. You are the best judge of whether this oral herpes outbreaks is a recurrence of your old infection or a new due to HSV-2.
About 3 weeks ago, my 5 month old developed red bumps in somewhat of a circle on the left side of his torse near the diaper line, and this started to stretch back in a line. A week later, he also had them on the right side of his torso, up higher on his side. This past weekend, they spread all over his back. I took him to the doctor on Monday and she said it was eczema and to change his soap and use a lot of lotion.
I considered similar to his little sister's (18 months) diaper rash. At the time he was going through a severe fever. We just assumed it was a fever rash. As he had a terrible white coat on his tongue as well as blistering on his tongue. It took about two days of on again-off again fever before he was through it. But, six days later he still has the pimples on his butt, and chapped rectum.
Also, I did take an at home test to see about a yeast infection but the ph level was to high indicating another infection and then the next day i found out that i had Strep B, which im still a little unclear what that is. I thought it was only for pregnant women and those with cancer. I'm just so frustrated becuase between the numerous docter visits, thoughts of UTI's or some SDT and many antibiotics nothing has really gotten better.
My 10 month old son is being treated for an ear infection with amoxicillin. He has pre-existing eczema on his face and when the rash developed a rash all over his body on day 4 of antibiotic use, I thought it was more eczema. The rash improved for a few says (but did not go away) but has now worsened (day 8). I decided, with agreement from doc, to keep him on amoxicillin to complete the course rather than introduce a new antibiotic.
Since his eyes weren't bloodshot or swollen, I let him recover from it on his own because antibiotics give him diarrhea and diaper rash, despite probiotics, and I don't even want to imagine holding him down for eye drops like three times a day. Over a period of four days, the goo subsided and by Saturday, it was gone. Only problem is, the eye goo seems to be replaced by a much wetter, aggravated cough and a fever.
Spray around plant roots to stop tot, spray foliage, inside gloves and under fingernails, rinse fruit and vegetables, use in shampoos and rinsing water, spry pets, carpets, wipe telephone mouthpieces, headphones, hearing aids, spray mattresses and allow to dry to kill dust mites, clean combs and glasses with it. Excellent for diaper rash and to spray inside diapers. Clean toilet seats with it, floors, underwear, pillowcases, etc., etc.
Hi- I posted a few months ago and received great help from the doctor as well as other posters. I am hoping I can get further assistance, as my daughter's condition is still confusing me. My daughter is almost 3 years old, and has been suffering from serious constipation (presumably due to stool witholding resulting from an anal fissure) since she was 18 months old. Her GI has never felt anything other than abdominal x-rays were necessary for diagnosis/treatment.
That must be so uncomfortable. Do you think possibly diaper rash cream might help?
Hey I just want to share my experience. I have had the 'cuts' on my labia minora (inner labia right around my vaginal opening) for over a year now. At first I freaked out and I got tested for every kind of STD imaginable. All my results were negative and I have in fact never been exposed to any type of Herpes at all. My doctor prescribed fluconazole, which helped with the yeast infection, but the cuts kept coming back.
oh my goodness! I hope things get better and quick! ps for the nasty diaper rash, I heard that you should switch between a&d and desitin because one will shield from the moisture and one will fight fungus. that is what the doc told my friend the other day when she was prescribed a med that will give the runs!
It's not THAT annoying, it's just when I think about it then it gets a little itchy. I put on some mild cream actually made for baby diaper rash, helping a little, but has this happened to anyone else???
Fluconazole helped but the infection just came right back. So I suggested could it be diaper rash because it looked the same- blisters, red resh & cracking. They told me to use penatin diaper rash creme. Witchazel only burns & stings, aloe vera jel doesn't really help. What does help me is rinsing a few times a day with 10-20% apple cider vinegar in water ( use a squirt bottle or water bottle with the close top squirt lids).
well, a few days ago i posted a topic about having what sounded like a diaper rash (kotex rash) because the vaginal area and buttocks a reae was very red and irritated and it hurt a lot. Well, thankfully that is almost gone, but i have noticed that on each side of the vagina (lips) towards the bottom, right next to the vaginal opening i have these two extremly painful sores(like craked skin) and i can barely even walk. They sting like alcohol trough a wound and itch a lot form time to time.
I have an appointment with a NEW GYN on the 27th so hopefully I'll finally get an answer. In the mean time Desitin(diaper rash cream) works for coating the problem area. Good enough for my baby is good enough for me.
and i try not to itch but i feel inclined to. i have been using destin which my doctor said helps rashes such as diaper rash and stuff.. and i guess it works a little but i want this dreaded thing to go away! if anyone has any at home remedies or found any cures or has been in this situation please contact me or respond.
Wow... My 2 1/2 year old girl has been complaining of back pain off and on for 2 months. She started vomitting this weekend (at night) and crying because she needed ice for her back. I took her to the doctor to find out she has a strept throat. She is being treated ... we will see if this stops the complaints of back pain. It is interesting to hear some of you say that your little ones acting as if the diaper is too tight.
I have had an orange tongue since October. Initially my doctor thought it was a fungal infection, however the symptoms did not subside after being treated with an anti-fungal medication. Then I was sent to an Ear, Nose, Throat Specialist. He did not have any answers either. He suggested that I use a tongue scraper and he prescribed an antimicrobial rinse. He said it's just something that I have to learn to live with. I still have an orange tongue though.
then I noticed the begining signs of a yeast infection (down there) and a friend told me that I could an an overgrowth of yeast in my body and that could be a sign of infection as well. So should I seek doctor advice and treatment?
Desitin regular (just the regular cream) diaper rash cream stops the itch completely but need to apply as needed.
I mean, its one thing to think that he might have strep or ear infection or sinusitis, and to treat it with medication and its quite another to have a child who gets fevers every 29 days on the dot (with little variation) for 3 and a half years. I just can't imagine the body would do that if it were some random infection. Well, good luck to everyone and i hope that you all find answers...don't just settle on what your doctor tells you...
During that time also I was on antibiotics for strep throat and did developed a yeast infection. I was certain that it was because of Yaz. I went to the doctor and she didn't believe me and wouldn't switch me to another pill. I did see someone else and now I am on ortho tri-cylin. They seem to not be as bad but still occur 2-3 times per month. They seem to always be in the same 4 spots and after they heal it's like there is a scar there and then they reopen when irritated.
I'm going to see a new GYN in 2 weeks I hope he can tell me something. By the way- I've found that Desitin(for baby diaper rash) works good at coating so air and toilet tissue aren't so painful.
