  • you might try some baby powder instead. just keep it pretty clean. i'v learned that means my dd is getting a yeast infection. but every child is different

  • it might be irritated from wearing soiled diapers. Keep the a & d on it. If it doesn't go away in a couple of days I would then call the doc. try not to get too worried about it though.

  • My daughter's got/get red there sometimes after a poopy diaper. Just try to keep it clean and dry. Not sure that I would use powder though, especially the cornstarch kind since it is like food for yeast.

  • It could be from the diaper. Maybe she's allergic to it. Try cloth diapers. They're a hassel, but sometimes they're better for baby than paper diapers.

  • My daughter got that way the first few times she had a lot of oranges or citris / high acidic foods. Otherwise, I would go with the previous resonses in yeast infection.

  • I agree with all the PP's. Even if you are diligent about changing diapers, the acid in urine (and poop) can cause irritation. Keep putting Desitin or A&D on it. Unless she is complaining or grabbing and scratching at her parts, it's most likely nothing.

  • also it could be that or she could have found out that there is a hole down there, my dd is 6 and when she is red and bright down there it is usually bc she has put a finger down there (she tells me) and that could be a reason also other than the diaper.
