My DDs would both get this (especially in the neck rolls) if they didn't get their cracks and crevices washed out daily. I use either just plain water or a drop of Cali Baby SS soap and make sure to pry open all those folds to rinse well. I put her on tummy time after her bath to help her neck really dry out well...it should be easier with her under arms. I never fully understood how people can say newborns and immobile babies don't get dirty...milk dribbles down their faces, they spit up all into their neck folds and they poop 10 times a day....my DDs necks would smell like cheese if I skipped one nightly bath
