"Diaper" rash on potty trained dd?

So my dd is 2 and has been day time potty trained since November when she turned 2. My issue is that she now constantly has a diaper rash/eczema looking rash on her butt constantly! It gets slightly better and slightly worse, but never goes away. When she saw her pediatrician in December she said it wasn't anything to worry over unless it got infected, but it seems to bother dd sometimes (but not always). We've tried changing to free and clear detergents thinking maybe the transition to underwear from diapers was too much for her little butt, but it's done no good. She is cloth diapered at bedtime only and I put ointment on her then, but again, it doesn't help. We haven't made any other diet or detergent changes. She also still uses the same baby wash she always has. Anyone have any other thoughts or advice?

Is she not wiping properly perhaps ?  I dont know if you go in and help her or not for that but i would presume so. Have you tried a yeast infection cream on it instead of diaper cream?

I let her wipe and then I go do it also. I haven't tried yeast infection cream though... I guess I just assumed since she is out of diapers and it is only on her butt that wouldn't be it, but at this point I think anything is worth a shot!

Possibly a yeast infection

If that were the case adults would not get them.   I would hope though if a yeast infection the doctor would be able to determine that so it could get treated properly.

My dd is 8 and has a patch of phoriasis (?) On her butt that shows up in the fall and stays till spring. It never fails.

I think I'm going to get out the nystatin and start that tonight. This never even crosses my mind! And I really don't know why because she's had them before!

I've never known an adult to get yeast infections only on their butt... I do think I am going to get out the nystatin tonight though.

My dd has eczema and I was thinking that may be the case also. She got it last winter, gone for the summer, and back this winter. I think I will try the nystatin to rule out yeast and unless anyone else has ideas I think I am left with the eczema answer. Thanks!

Try looser undies. My ds gets eczema and I've noticed that it isn't as bad if he has loose undies on so I now buy them a size bigger. He looks funny with saggy undies. Lol.
