I've always heard that you shouldn't ever put baby powder on a baby girl because it could cause yeast infections...is that true?
My daughter gets terrible, HORRIBLE rashes when she poops and pees. I've tried everything...Nystatin (a prescription cream or powder, but her pedi gave her the cream kind), buttpaste (made the rashes WORSE), desitine, vasaline, etc. I've tried every diaper on the market (and have used cloth a few times, didn't help when I thought it would), I change her constantly so she's not sitting in her pee/poop....I put baby powder on her as a last resort last night and this morning the rash looks TONS better. I'm guessing she just has REALLY sensitive skin (my husband's scotch-irish and has really sensitive skin as well... but my son doesn't have sensitive skin, he got my Colombian tan and skin lol).
I just don't want to continue to use it if it could cause her to get a yeast infection. Does anyone know?
