  • yeast rash! easy to fix. Just wash rinse with water and make sure you pat it dry, you can get rid of the yeast with a mixed concoction of desitin and clomitimozole (wrong spelling, it's a yeast infection cream)

  • It could be yeast, call the doc usually they will tell you to use OTC lotrimin cream. It helps to keep it clean an dry, some people use corn starch which also helps

  • You can use cornstarch or bby powder w/ it in it. Try to use a bib, and it should help soak up extra milk and drool! GL

  • My son got that for awhile too... try to keep it dry, check after every feeding. Use bibs if your baby is a drooler and change them often so she stays dry. At night with bath time we would wash really well before bed time. If it seems oozy it might be yeast... you can use regular lotramin cream (for athletes foot) and put it on 3-4 times/day.

  • Wash it and dry it then add corn starch. That will keep it dry. If it doesn't go away after 2 corn starch days, it is yeast and needs an anti fungal cream.
