Samara has had a stubborn diaper rash, my friend said it looked like yeast, and I agree. I have tried breastmilk, probiotics, i just wahsed the diapers super well, in vinegar hot water etc. I have let her got naked as much as I can. I used coconut oil mixed with grapefruit extract. How long will she have this for?!?!

Have you tried yogurt on her skin? Organic, plain kind?

How old is she now? Sorry I forget!

The yeast will live in the cloth until they are boiled or bleached (with bleach or sun), put her in disposables util it's 100% clear or it won't go away.

Nope. I tried that too, I soaked them in vinegar with oregano oil and it didn't help. Sucks.

TTO in the wash will help cut yeast too!

I went through this too. I used tto in a cold wash, then oxygen bleach (Biokleen brand) in a hot wash, then I washed regularly and put in sun to dry. Also, keep baby in disposables until the rash disappears and then continue to treat and use disposables for at least 5 more days. The yeast can continue to live on the skin, even after the rash disappears. If not, you could reinfect the diapers, which then reinfects the baby and you will get caught up in a vicious cycle! Nothing natural worked for my daughter's rash, we had to resort to a prescription cream from her doctor. Good luck!

DD had a yeast infection there for 6 months. Yeast reproduces every 30 minutes. I used over the counter lotrimin fm (athlete's foot) at every diaper change for 2-3 days for it to clear up, which is more than recommended, but after 6 months I was sick of it.
