butt rash

My 2 year old dd has this bad looking rash on her butt it been there for a long time.  They are raised red bumps. I wasn't thinking yeast because its her butt not vagina but could it still be yeast? It doesn't seem to bother her. The butt paste doesn't seem to be doing anything for it.  Any suggestions on what to do?

From what I understand, red bumps mean yeast. It can be on her butt. It can be on boy butts too, it's not limited to just vaginas.
If she's in cloth, put her in disposables because yeast lives in cloth and can reinfect. You need to kill the yeast in the cloth AND cure the infection before she goes back in cloth.
Tea tree oil in olive oil with kill any infection- yeast or otherwise. You can add lavender oil to soothe as well. You can also use jojoba oil, coconut oil, or other carriers instead of olive oil if you'd like. If its not yeast, these will help anyway (jojoba oil is cd safe). Just stay far, far away from mineral/baby oil, petroleum, or lanolin products.

Thank you! So mix tto with one of those to put on her butt? And washing the diapers with tto will get rid of it?

Yes to the mixture. No to washing.

You have to sun bleach cloth to kill yeast. Or use regular bleach in the wash. Or boil them.
I have even soaked diapers in the strongest EOs there are to no avail. Vinegar as well. Yeast sucks!
