Diaper rash yeast treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Diaper rash yeast treatment


Avatar f tn Go into the female products aisle of your drug store, and get a yeast cream. Monistat. This cream will cure your baby's yeast diaper rash in 6 hours, or it's not a yeast infection. I can't imagine why pediatricians and other providers don't immediately recognize yeast diaper rash. Best wishes.
159354 tn?1286371288 deanne, in my vast experience with boys and diaper rash ;D, when you get a rash like what you describe, an anti-fungal is the only thing that works. Cortaid is cortisone, so it works some, and I don't know what Schraders paste is, but a fungicide is what will cure it in a matter of hours. Everything else takes days. And I meant to say "vagisil", not "magisil" in my post, sorry.
Avatar n tn I just called our pediatrician yesterday for a similiar looking rash that didn't respond to normal diaper rash treatment. They said it was a yeast infection (which can be on the bottom, legs, etc.) and they prescribed Nyastatin....but an OTC antifungal like Lotrimin should work too. You could try it and see if it reacts well to it?
175662 tn?1282217256 That, or I was purposely trying to always coat him with diaper rash cream to prevent diaper rash, and I actually caused it by not allowing his skin to breathe. It started out small, and I just kept applying more and more cream, but it got worse and worse. I tried EVERY cream I could find-- did the Lotrimin, left him go diaper-less, etc. Nothing worked. Then a friend of mine suggested plain, 100% natural Emu Oil!
Avatar n tn Rash is one of the sx of Riba, so as long as you are taking that, you could have the rash. Just keep that cream handy, and at the first sign of a new break out, put some on.
Avatar m tn I previously experienced the soap and detergent issues, and for the past month, have been using non scented, Dermatologically approved Aveeno, so I think I can assume that is not the case. I am applying Lamisil to some areas, and some diaper rash creams. This aids in the itch, but no help with the rashes themselves.
202436 tn?1326477933 you could also try the aveeno diaper cream it's SUPER thick but I do have to disagree slightly - if it's bright red patches that look like they may bleed it's likely it's beyond just irritation and into a yeast rash, which is what happened with Grey - the wet environ from his diarrhea caused a yeast rash....and while an antifungal isn't what we use for vaginal yeast infections, it's the SOP to treat yeast rashes.....
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 At the beguining I developed a rash like eczema (diaper rash) that I tried to control with creams and ointments. Nothing seemed to work. It kept spreading and the itch was terrible. I should of went to the doctor sooner but I never thought this could happen to me. It seems that everything started with the antibiotics that I took to treat an teeth absess. I killed all my good bacteria (flora) in my intestines therefore afectin severely my immune system.
Avatar f tn Hi, It could be yeast infection which is a fungus.Most yeast infections are easily treated with an over-the-counter antifungal treatment. Apply the medication directly to the affected skin twice daily for a week. If the rash doesn't go away, or if it recurs frequently, consult your doctor. Keep the genitals clean and dry to prevent recurence. It could also be due to an allergy, probably to diaper or some insect bite.You could start him on anti-allergic syrup and see if it subsides.
Avatar n tn 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. Does anyone have any idea what this might stem from or is this a dermatological issue?
Avatar f tn I've been taking Keflex and Prednisone for an ear infection that I've had for 2 months (this is my 3rd antibiotic in the last 2 months) and I have developed a very red rash starting right below the opening of my vagina, the skin beside it(kinda the start of my ver inner butt cheek), all the way up to my anus. The rash is itchy and sore (esp on my anus). It looks like a severe diaper rash. I've seen this type of rash on a friends child who had an external yeast infection.
Avatar n tn I would try Desitin, the same ointment used for a baby's diaper rash. You may have diaper rash without the diaper. Let us know what happens.
Avatar n tn The fungal infection responded right away to treatment with prescription Clotrimazole and Betamethasone cream plus acetone (nail polish remover), but the peri-anal rash did not respond at all to those treatments, or to Desitin (diaper rash ointment), or to a triple anti-biotic ointment. Who should I see about this rash, or what treatments should I try? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/243535'>Red rash around anus</a>.
Avatar f tn By the second dose he was having a rash on his bottom which looked like it was just a basic diaper rash from diareah (sp?) however today is the 7th and the rash is now just on his "balls" and penis. He is uncut and his penis is looking very weird. He keeps scratching and screaming in pain and the diapers make it worse so he only wants to wear underware which is ok while we are at home but he isn't even potty training yet.
Avatar n tn oh and the crusted whiteish looking right nipple. if the yeast infection did go without the proper treatment for some time would it take a lot longer to heal? my biggest concern is that is the inflammatory breast cancer but ive read the symptoms on that and mine are different....Also, could the antibiotics have made it worse? i am currently on antibiotics now because of a bad cold...and, my mother informed me that when she used to have her period she ALWAYS had a vaginal yeast infection...
Avatar n tn Get copies of the records on your cultures just in case you go elsewhere for 2nd opinion & also to see what name they dx'd. Sounds like Candida but there are types that need longer anti- fungals/longer Diflucan use. Desitin ointment is for diaper rash & wks realy well for the red/burn. Any blood tests? Some foods/meds/antibiotics cause this. You may need a lengthy treatment. This can transfer to partner. Maybe it's going back- forth?
Avatar n tn Also I don't experience really painful itchy severe yeast infections anymore. I advise you all to be tested for candida allergy. And use diaper rash cream on the cuts to soothe and heal them. Also avoid sugar. Best of luck.
Avatar m tn About 3 days later I decided to go get a yeast infection kit from the store. It was the Monistat one day treatment. I used it. I decided to go to the woman's clinic cause I wanted to make sure that I was doing the right thing. The Dr. there told me it looks like I have a chemical burn from the Monistat and gave me a Diflican pill to take and sends me on my way. A week goes by...I'm still in pain and discomfort down there that seems to be getting worse.
Avatar n tn They informed me that I didn't have a fungal infection but that I had a yeast infection and that this normally didn't need treatment but that they would treat me for it anyhow. Now (3 months later), I again have cuts and have been back to the gyno. They have done a complete test again just to make sure of everything and next week I receive the results. Anyhow, the doctors informed me that if it's a fungal infection this needs treatment.
Avatar m tn After a while, I ringworm took shape on my inner thigh/groin area and I was given Clotrimazole and Betamethasone Dipropionate Lotion for treatment. The ringworm and anal rash went away within a week or so, but now the anal rash is back. I have no idea what this could be. I have more of the cream leftover but it may not heal it completely as before. I have posted a few pics for some suggestions.
Avatar m tn A similar, very stubborn rash occurred this time last year and finally improved after several weeks of treatment. The rash started in his diaper area (buttocks, sacrum and now trunk and face). It is a blanching, maculopapular rash that becomes raised and very inflamed when scratched...almost looks like poison ivy when irritated. I have tried oxistat, nystatin(for a week), and just added locoid cream yesterday for face and trunk-told not to use on diaper region. Also using probiotics.
1151771 tn?1262028720 Yeast infection presents with red rash which is very itchy. Another possibility can be diaper rash which can occur due to contact dermatitis to the material of the diaper and urinating and sweating makes it worse. Use cotton diapers for some days and expose her to the air for some time after urinating and washing. Now since she is getting painful sores, so it looks like infected hair follicles and again not yeast infection.
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 He then developed a severe rash days after he went off of his medication. At first the Doctor's said it was just a diaper rash from the diarrhea he had from the antibiotic but then it got worse. I took him back and they said he had a yeast infection. He has been on Nystatin for 6 days now but his rash is not looking any better except for that the redness is not as bad. Does anybody know any other things to try or suggestion of different Rx that would help clear this up?
Avatar n tn thats a spot where some tend to perspire. almost like a heat rash (or diaper rash..hee hee). i wear pads during the night when i have my period and get what i call just that... a diaper rash. sounds similiar. if your dr. has looked and you've been tested, you should relax. they know what they are looking for and they know what std's looks like. have you used a new detergent? may be too "perfumey" for sensitive skin.
Avatar f tn He took one look and knew it was a type of yeast infection - basically, it starts as slight diaper rash but develops into a larger rash that doesn't respond to typical treatment. She was prescribed econozole - however, many actually get relief from over-the-counter topical creams (apply to the skin where the rash is) for yeast infection. Perhaps your daughter's doctor, pharmacist, or nurse could advise you over the phone if it's worth trying.
410943 tn?1202266042 Our nurse also suggested using a hair dryer after a bath to make sure the moisture is dried up...strange, but works pretty good. Our dd has a yeast rash on a great deal of her body (thanks to a thrush infection from her granddad). We're coating her in monistat, but lotrimin AF works (those are OTC creams) when monistat won't. We used the OTCs above as early as 3 months on one dd who developed a yeast infection after antibiotics. No fun at all. Do try the yogurt trick once she can have it.
Avatar n tn I went to my doctor to see if it was outbreaks and she said no and it's just skin irritation from my blood and that my skin has just become more sensitive to it. She says I should use diaper rash cream. It doesn't matter what I use for my period.
