Diaper rash that spreads up the body? what is this?

My 18 month old has a rash. Im geussing its a form of diaper rash because it started down there. They are small red dots. Lots in his diper, on his butt and little man part. But then they aventually climbed up his stomic, and are also behind his ears. They arn't as grouped together as on his butt, but there is still alot.
Giving him a bath dosnt seem to help, and I've try'd at least 5 different diaper rash creams. Any suggestions on what this could be?

  • Yeast infection?
    Reaction to detergent/diapers/wipes/diaper cream?

    Does it bother him? Is he uncomfortable? Any other symptoms?

  • Has he had a fever at all? Fever causes rash. Its it red all around the bumps? My sons eczema was like that but red in blotches. The ointments could be making it worse if he is allergic.

  • Thats probably a fungal infection not diaper rash. It usually starts in a nice warm place like a diaper. Try tolifolinate cream. You can buy it anywhere for around $3. Put it on the affected areas. I won't hurt him, totally safe and will clear it up within 72 hours! If that doesn't work I'd take him to the doc.

  • Thats classic symptoms of a yeast infection. Call the doc, a little ointment and it will be gone

  • Sounds like yeast. Your ped can give you a prescription for an anti-fungal diaper cream. Start probiotics.
