My 10 month old son has an yeast infection in his diaper area. I've been to the DR twice and they gave me an ointment but its not clearing up. What should I do? Back to the DR? He has small bumps all over his butt.

When ds had a slight one I used athletes foot cream (lotramin) and it went away. Let his little butt air out for a few minutes after you change him, good luck!

Yup! Our ped also recommends using lotrimin and lots of airing out. We also put aquaphor over the lotrimin to give it additional protection.

My son had this, if it doesn't clear up with athletes foot cream, you may have to get a prescription ointment.

My midwife suggested something she used on her son's butt, it's called CALENDULA. It works best in the cream, obviously. She says it works better than Desitin rash cream. And it's a homeopathic remedy. So it's all natural.

You can get it at a pharmacy but she said they also started carrying it in grocery stores. Calendula ointment.

 Let his bottom get plenty of air at night or when you are at home during the day. When he is wearing a diaper place a clean dry cabbage leaf over the affected area, replace as needed. This works wonders without medication. I am always amazed by people who want to put chemicals on their babies when they are so young.... I wish you the best.
