Pampers diapers causing problems?

You know i didnt think about this till i just read someone elses post about pampers.... It seems that my daughter gets her yeast infections mostly just when i put her in pampers... Is it just me or is anyone else having problems with this brand?? I put her in pampers with her medicine cream and the yeast infection gets way way way way worse and i put her in huggies with her medicine cream and it atleast starts to get better.. weird... Im really starting not to trust pampers...

My oldest could only wear Huggies.  Everyhting else broke him out.  Even Pampers.  They really bothered him.  My youngest can't wear Huggies.  They break him out.  These diapers gave him a really bad rash and it was horrible.  I now use the Wal-Mart brand diapers and they work great for him.  I don't even want to try anything else on him.

I used pampers for a while. My daughter started getting a SUPER BAD rash. There was also an area with raised edges that looked like ring worm. I tried prescription creams, every over the counter cream you can think of and everything made it worse! She had it for over a month poor girl! Finally I saw a diff doc and she told me that over the past year they had a hundres or so cases like this and every baby wore pampers. They treated half like ring worm and half like diaper rash before they figured out it was the diaper causing it. She said once they switched diapers they were fine. I switched my daughter to huggies and it cleared up within 2 days! My doc said some are still fine with pampers but more have problems with them.

Thats the same reason I stopped using Pampers. I didn't like the fact that my son was always getting that white powder all over down there. And it didn't matter how long he sat in the diaper too. But now I'm a believer in Huggies Gentle Care. I've switched to that and have never had another problem. My son hasn't had so much as a diaper rash *knock on wood* so I swear by Huggies...

I stopped using pampers after i saw every change dd would have a white powder crap all over her from the diaper. We use the local store brand now and she has done better.

I hate pampers,...the gel comes out! If I use disposables I use huggies or foodlion brand (if you have a foodlion around you should should try em!) I switched to cloth when DS was 9 months or so? I still use sposies ocasionally but I wont ever go back to full time.
