DD is 4 months and starting to get hwr first diaper rash. I tried my usual viniger soak which has worked in less than 24 hours with my other kids. That does not seem to be the case here. We do not cloth diaper, and she isnt using a new brand. What else can I try?

Yeast is red, pinpoint, like creases. Could you snap a pic?

Quoting rmgriffberg:

 here is my go to for diaper rashes. first i try coconut oil, if that doesnt work i add a little tea tree oil to coconut oil and put that on, if that doesnt work i use Tiny Heinys diaper ointment made by Sugar Bear (sold online), if that doesnt work i combine everything and i have only had to do that 1 time with 3 kids :)

My son got a yeast rash. It took me a week to clear it but I got it. It takes dedication. Every diaper change requires at least 10min air before diaper. And if they poo then its right to the tub because when the skin is already irritated it can be super super sensitive. My aon had the runs at the time ao it was definitely necessary. Hed scream bwfore he was even done like he sat on hot coals. Anyhow. Mild bath. Just a littlw one to rinse the bum. Then blow dry. Yes blow dry. I used our hairdryer on the lowest and coolest setting dor a few min. Ds loved this so I had jo trouble. Then put once its really really dry id put on some breastmilk and dry it a little more before the diaper went on. I did this every day religiously for a week and it finally cleared up. Its rough but it works. I cut out all creams and oils etc.

If it is yeast, she will need a special anti-fungal cream.

My go to remedy was desitin.  It has A&D that helps healing and zinc oxide that protects the rash from soiled diapers.  In fact I used it with every diaper change regardless.  My daughter had a total of 2 diaper rashes the entire 3 years she was in diapers.

I switched between aquaphor and desitin when my duaghter had her diaper rash.  It worked great for me.  I would let her air dry as much as possible while she had the rash.

I forgot about the yeast issues my daughter had.  We used Lotrimin.  It is for feet fungus but also works on yeast in little ones.
