red bumps in diaper area

Ok so this little girl I watch during the day is getting these red hard bumps. They look almost like a really nasty pimple. They are really hard underneath the raised area and red. She keeps getting them but only in her diaper area. Her parents think it's bug bites. But I think it's wierd to only be bitten in the diaper area. Do you guy have any idea what it could be? (she is in sposies if that helps!)

It sounds like yeast to me too. Poor baby.

Re: red bumps in diaper area

the thing is that it's only like one or two of them at a time. Ranging from her bum to her inner thigh. They swell up to the size of nickel or a little bigger. They are warm to the touch and hard under the bump. and very sensitive,..... Do you still think yeast?? If so I am going to tell the mom to take her to the dr. But they are not little or very many. Usually just one and then a day or two later another. Then a week and another. It's really random

Maybe eczema? The little girl I babysit for (also in sposies) gets horrible diaper rashes that are because of her eczema. She just has really sensitive skin. One time she got a small diaper rash (started off as 2 little spots on her bottom) and it spread all over her body.

If its warm to the touch, I would agree its a yeast infection.

Re: red bumps in diaper area

I'm thinking it could be bacterial rather than yeast. Possibly a staph infection or impetigo. Are they oozing or crusting at all?

Re: red bumps in diaper area

Well There have been 2 of them on her bum but high up. 1 where the groin and leg meet and 2 on the outside of her leg on her thigh (outer thigh) They called the Dr and the curse said that it does not sound like staph. The only ones that have broken are the ones on the high bum but I have never noticed any oozing. They look almost like a bug bite but we cannot figure from what. If it is coming from my house you would think my kids would have them. As she naps in our DS bed. Nd he has never had this. We are just sooo confused at to what it could be.

She's probably just going to have to take her in to see the doctor. M had this once and it did not look like typical staph but that's what they finally determined it to be. Hers didn't ooze either, just hard bumps with a little peeling skin around it...very odd and not the typical staph infection...but antibiotics cleared it up. Also be careful of direct contact and wash your hands after changing just in case that's what it is.
