Re: Yeast Diaper Rash that won't go away? - UPDATE with Pics, is it really yeast??? Help!

It doesn't look like yeast to me, but I don't know what it really does look like. My friends baby had impetigo, I wonder if thats what you are dealing with. Do you have any bactacin or bactroban. The doctor also recommended a little bit of bleach in a bath tub full of water, i guess its safe to drink even, even though it sounds freeky.

It could even be exzema but its not yeast.

doesn't really look like yeast to me. When Mia gets yeast the rash looks more like pimples. That rash looks really painful. Poor baby - I hope you can help the rash go away soon.

Hmm, at first I was like "why is it purple" and then realized why lol. Well I honestly think it kind of looks like a yeast rash, doesn't look too different from what we experienced.

Oh ouch poor little guy. Try adding some antibiotic ointment to the mix. I agree could be impetigo which is a nasty skin infection. Does it ooze or anything like that?

It doesn't ooze at all, it just looks like little red scabs. I started applying Neosporin under the triple paste las night so we'll see if that helps.

Is it possible to take him to a different pediatrian. Maybe call around and tell them what is going on and what you have tried and maybe even emailing that pic to the dr first. My first dd had yeast rashes all the time and they never looked like that. Not that Im saying its not yeast, but I just have never seen one like that.

Okay well I think impetigo would ooze so it probably isn't that. Yeah I think you might want to try and get a different opinion. Be sure when you see the doc next time to go in with a list of all the things you have tried for how long, and how much. I find that helps me a lot cause sometimes they rush you or don't give as much attention to something as you would like.

I can't say enough great things about Weleda Calendula Baby Cream. My son has really sensitive skin and this stuff heals it almost overnight. Maybe worth a try...Good luck, rashes are no fun
