Yeast infection???

Now my daughter woke up at about 4:00am and would not go back to sleep due to what seemed to be a VERY itchy, irritated rash on her privates. so i took her to the doctor and he said it was a yeast infection. I've been putting the nystatin on that he prescribed and bathing her daily, but im wondering about "at home care" as far as things i could do to help the treatment. any suggestions?
