Antibiotics and diaper rash

Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics and diaper rash


Avatar n tn She was sent home after 6 weeks on portagen and immediately developed a horrible diaper rash - open red blisters and oral thrush. I asked the pediatrician since she should be on prophylactic antibiotics for dental work (as it will cause openings in the tissue and allow infection in) should she not be on them for this? The blisters are huge, open, weaping, bleeding. I'm really concerned about problems.
Avatar f tn My 3 year old daughter gets this horrible diaper rash about every 2 months, I used different types of diaper rash creams but it won't go away and the thing is she doesn't wear a diaper anymore so she's never wet or dirty I cannot understand why she has this diaper rash, in between this bad diaper rashes she never has any skin irritations down there but every two months she gets it bad, I don't know should I be concerned and look deeper into her health, it seems very odd to have them every two mo
676912 tn?1332816151 When my kids would get really nasty diaper rashes, I used any diaper rash ointment I could get my hands on, and then put Vaseline over it. If it is a yeast infection, some Vagisil would do the trick. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Has he been on antibiotics recently? If he does have a severe yeast rash, keeping him very clean and dry and applying antifungal creams to him will clear it up very very fast - and make it clear it's not a burn. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Yes, it sounds like a kind of diaper rash. Another name would be pyoderma (skin infection) due to the urine or vaginal discharge scald. The vulva can continue to be swollen for several weeks, but the bleeding phase of a canine estrus cycle usually lasts a week or less. Endocrine disorders are not uncommon in dogs and may be the cause of the prolonged estrus cycle. Please have her examined by a vet for the skin disease and a possible endocrine disorder.
Avatar f tn all of my kids seem to get bad diaper rash bleeding and all (i am preggos with 4th child) and i swear to this day by desitine creamy it really works i also let them hardly have a diaper on when possible i know this early in age is kinda hard but it helps in the long run
159354 tn?1286371288 Yes it is called Butt Paste. Avery has never really had diaper rash but she has had a red spot here and there and it clears it right up. Good luck and hope you have a good weekend!! Oh and I also wanted to tell you that my nephew used to get like this and it was because he had a milk allergy. Just a thought, I am sure it is not the case.
Avatar f tn My friend puts Vaseline on her baby and she's only had one diaper rash and she's almost 2 now. It will keep the diaper from rubber her too. Maybe switch to non scented diapers and wipes and maybe use the corn starch. I'm sorry your having to go through this with your little one.! I hope it gets better.!
432737 tn?1358553032 There were some things saying don't use it in case it is a yeast infection and not diaper rash but I knew it was diaper rash because if the diarrhea. DH and I stopped using all wipes and decided that at every diaper change we would run him under the sink sprayer. Boy did he like that better. And, we'd let it dry for a couple minutes and powder with corn paste, nothing else. Well, Jack had diarrhea through the night at midnight, 1 and 2 a.m.
Avatar f tn When my daughter had a really bad diaper rash while she was in the hospital (for a respiratory problem) the nurses mixed up a cream for her that took care of it in one day corn starch mallox petroleum jelly balmex mix together and it makes a nice cream that works really well, I still use it today if my girls get a red booty
Avatar f tn Some pharmacies will also whip up a superduper triple diaper cream if you ask them. Also just be sure your dd's tush is very DRY before putting on any cream, otherwise it will lock the moisture next to the skin and get worse.
Avatar n tn My son has had terrible diapper rash and antibiotics diarrhea, here is what we do: Clean the skin with liquid Zantac, it's a good antiacid, let dry a minute or two Apply butt paste - we use TriplE Paste Apply vaseline Use natural cotton insert between butt and regular diapper
Avatar n tn I've had psoriasis for almost as long as Hep C, 30-35 years. After beginning tx they gave a script for triamcinolone 1%, which works as well, if not better, as anything b4. And it's cheap too! 4$ a Wally-World. Stick with it, it'll work. Stay strong.
1165284 tn?1323459076 It gave him diaper rash which I was able to get rid of with zinc based diaper rash ointment. but now he has a sensitive & red scrotum & inner upper thighs. What should I put on this to ease the pain? I know it is caused by the antibiotic but he is having alot of discomfort. I would like to know the best thing to help him because I don't want to put the wrong thing on him & make it worse. Help please.
Avatar n tn His doctor prescribed nystatin cream and told me it was a diaper rash. My son does not wear diapers and is potty trained. I also remember my child passing gas much more frequently since the rash started but doesn't have any diaherra. Although he complained a couple of times he had stomach cramping before he developed the rash. Been using the the nystatin cream for almost 2 weeks and the rash is about only 20% better. He is still very itchy. I'm wondering if this could be rectal strep?
Avatar f tn In the United States, almost every strain of aurous is now resistant to the antibiotics oxacillin, penicillin and amoxicillin, and strains of the disease have begun developing resistance to newer drugs like methicillin and vancomycin. The threat of prolonged illness or death from this infection has increased as it has become more resistant and fewer drugs are able to effectively control or eliminate it.
Avatar n tn however, as soon as she stops taking the antibiotics, the rash starts to come back. It looks similar to mild diaper rash and is about the size of a quarter. Sometimes looks a little crusty and sometimes not. We've tried eveything from high-end lotion to taking her to the peditrician who just said to try the lotion and said it was not ringworm. Last time, she said to take her to a dermatologist, but we haven't had time just yet. Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated...
Avatar n tn i have a 1yr old son and his penis area has some rashes and some redness like chaffing and diaper rash. but then the head of his penis also seems swollen. what could be the cause of that? he has not been circumcised. it also scratches him alot.
189192 tn?1261345228 We left him without a diaper as much as possible and put lots of old sheets and towel down to protect the carpet. We bought a baby suitable bath emolient and every time he needed cleaning up sat him a a bowl of warm water with the emolient in it. When he did wear a diaper I put one on that was a couple of sizes too big so it wasn't touching his skin and used lots of zinc oxide based diaper cream and also smear of vagisil 2 or 3 times a day.
Avatar n tn My daughter is 3-1/2 years old and has had the same recurring rash on her bottom that extends from her rectum to the front of her bottom for almost a year now. It comes and goes every few months. The doctors have treated it with antibiotics as if it were a yeast infection. The treatment works temporarily, but then the rash will appear again for no apparent reason. She is fully potty-trained so I know this is not a diaper type of rash.
Avatar n tn started in the diaper area but didn't quite look like your typical diaper rash, then spread up her body and cover her front and back torso, tons around her neck, armpit, upper inner thigh (groin), and starting to creep one or two on her face and down the arm and leg. this is going on 4+ weeks.
284738 tn?1283110419 they checked her oxygen saturation and it was still at 98 so all is good there.. they gave us a script for her diaper rash ( she has been having diarrhea so she has a wicked bad diaper rash) and told us to just feed her pedialyte for the next 24 hours because she is having such bad diarrhea. they set me up an appointment for wednesday just to check on her progress. So everything is good.
Avatar f tn Hello, Causes of anal rash include moisture(due to sweating or frequent washing), the abrasion caused by clothing,the pressure of sitting,chemical irritants like laundry soaps, colognes and scented toilet paper,certain food irritants,medicines like some antibiotics and laxatives,infections like STD’s and pinworms,anal abrasions and fissures and skin problems such as psoriasis, seborrhea and eczema. Sometimes hemorrhoids will start off as red rash and anal itching.

Avatar m tn I had a skin test done, where a swab was sent off to a lab to see if it'd produce anything on a petri, and it came back negative. I took antibiotics for them for a while, to no avail, tried diaper rash (??) ointment for a while, etc. I'm at a total loss, and have been to the doctor twice about them with no luck. Please help, it's been quite a while now... and although it waxes and wanes, it keeps coming back!
Avatar n tn Upon further examination I realized I had a yeast infection. Purchased Monistat and used some of the cream topically on the rash. Rash became worse and spread up to top of crevice at end of lower back. Tried zinc oxide diaper cream, but rash continues to itch and be there. Is this a fungal infection I should treat with something like Lamasil?
Avatar n tn I'm wondering if I should take it now and see what happens or just wait and see if it goes away. Could it possibly be a type of jock itch or diaper (without the diaper) rash, I was walking around a lot today in very cold temperatures. Please Help!
Avatar m tn Hello, I am at a loss and thought I would ask if anyone else had any ideas on my daughter's rash. My daughter is 19 months old and has developed a rash that started on her knees, it was skin colored and did not bother her, so I waited to see if it was just dry skin and would go away on its own. After a week and a half it was still there and spreading on her legs a little on her belly and back.
Avatar m tn If you walk a lot , carry some baby powder with you to reduce the friction of your legs rubbing together. University Medical makes a good Acne medication also. Also diaper rash treatment could help too. any of the thing mention from the the previous post and mine should work!! Carry sum germ X with you!!!! Germs and bacteria cause rashes and clogged pored and ingrown hairs and it sounds like that's all it is!
