  • doctors will call that a yeast infection and give you a special cream for it.

  • We just went through the same thing & we use cloth too. I found out that he's allergic to citrus. At first the Dr told me to use OTC yeast meds, and that didn't touch it. I probably spent over $100 in different creams. So then I did a little research and decided to do an elimination diet, starting with the things that were most likely to be a problem. The first thing I eliminated was citrus (or anything high in acid, i.e. pineapple, tomatoes, etc.) Sure enough... the bumps cleared right up and only come back if he's had citrus.

  • Getting rashes in the summer is a common problem. Sometimes it is a heat-rash. If they are a little damp, and it's hot and they sweat, - heat rash. The best cure is to let her bare bottom be exposed to sunlight for fifteen minutes a day. A second best is to let her swim in salt-water like the ocean daily. If not - give her an epsom salts bath, let the bottom be completely dry, then put on a clean diaper. With heat rashes, creams only make it worse, as it holds in moisture. It's best to just be dry and clean, as much as possible.

  • it's more than likely a yeast infection, you can get it at the local pharmacy store, and ask a pharmist, about what cream to use.
    good luck!

  • It could be a yeast infection or have you changed the soap you use something children need time to adjust to a new laundry soap

  • use A&D ointment and A&D cream mix them together on the lil ones but, the cream REALLY helps to bring down the bumps and the ointment helps to protect the area. good luck!
