  • Boudreux is the best cream as far as that goes.....

    Have you changed diapers?

    Has she been on any antibiotics? This can cause a yeast infection and they are horrible horrible things!

    She can even get yeast without antibiotics though....

    Just mentioning a few things my kids have gone through...:) Hope she feels better soon!!!
