Question bad diaper rash, wwyd?

Breanna (16 mo, disposables) has the worst diaper rash i've ever seen d/t diarrhea, this is the 3rd day...her skin is actually broken open in some areas and some of it looks like a bunch of red dots (is that a yeast infection?). Right now i put her in some underwear to air out. We have Aveeno zinc oxide cream and A&D ointment...which would be best for right now? Does this warrant a call to on-call doc?

If its causing her pain I would def take her in. Plus you said its broke open, that could cause infection. Sounds like yeast.

sounds like a yeast infection, my son is the same age and he has had several, if you take her off of dairy and yeast products it will clear up, I also tried all the expensive creams but coconut oil always worked the best!

Anytime we had anything break open, it was always yeast AND bacteria so it required two different creams from the pharmacy. I'd go in.

Been there, done that. Sounds liked yeast. I would definitely not use anything petroleum based and call the doc. Ours always wants to see us if a rash breaks open. Hope she feels better soon!
