  • Good luck. Everything you described is what my daughter had and it was a yeast infection. When I first noticed it I thought it was milk too but realized real quick it wasn't. I'm nosy about your pedi says so please update when you get a chance.

  • Yuck, my daughter had the same thing. Her pedi gave me a free cream sample but I can't remember the damn name. I think it started with a V. Very expensive that's why she gave me the sample. Call you pedi.

  • Is it from the milk going down to his neck?

    Put somthing there, dont let it get wet,

    I would take him to the dr's asap...you dont want this to get infected

    And what it sounds like is it...is a raw rubbing type of skin rash.

  • Corn starch works wonders for these things...diaper rash too. Baby powder is not good to use.

  • My 2 mo old daughter has the same thing, it got really bad and was in all of her creases. We tried
    everything over the counter and finally took her to the pediatrician. We tried several things before
    we found one that works. It's called Vusion and it is very expensive($110 for sm tube). They
    gave me samples cause my insurance wouldn't cover it. It's been 2 days and it's almost completely gone.
