A month ago I took my 15 month old to the dr for a rash on her area. Before taking her I used destin, cornstarch, vasaline, aquaphor none of those things worked. He told me it was yest infection and told me to use nystatn twice a day. I used that, but by the third week of still having the rash I took her back bc she had a really bad diaper rash due to diahirrea . Dr told me to keep her really dry let her walk around without a diaper and to put nothing on her but the nystatn. Dr told me to make sure she was really dry before putting the cream on bc if she had any moisture on the area the cream would trap it in under it and wouldn't work. A lady I work with told me to brown some cornstarch in an iron skillet and put that on her when she sleeps. That helped with the diaherra rash not the yest. The diaherra rash looked like she was burnt she had blistered that had blood coming out of them. I have a full time job monday thru Thursday and when she is not with me she is at daycare. I let her walk around without a diaper at home. We are working on the potty training, but she waits til after I take her off the chair to go potty on the floor. I don't use wipes at home I use a cold wash cloth. Daycare uses wipes. I don't know what else to do for the yest infection if that is even what it is. As of tonight she had a little bit of a rash around her booty hole. I have changed diapers and wipes. Not sure what else to do. It seems like I have done it all.I really dont need or have the money to go back to the dr. Dr said that a yest would last around a week. Well hers has been a month. I thought maybe it might be a milk issue. Any advice or comment?Answer Question
