3 doctors and my midwives misdiagnosed my dd2 with yeast as well as bacterial infections. She had a raw bloody rash for the first 4 weeks of her life.
4 prescription creams later and I figured out she has severe food intolerance as well as a reaction to sposies. Once I cut the foods that were bothering her for a couple weeks and switched to cloth it cleared completely.
It does come back within 5-8 hours of me consuming an offending food.

Dd was on antibiotics for a year straight for health reasons so I was also constantly battling yeast. What worked for us keeping them away was TTO in her wipes solution. I uses about 10 drops in the disposable wipes tub with a couple of drops of baby wash. That kept the yeast away for good once I started using it. When she did have an infection I uses about 15-20 drops. If I missed one set of solution ten we would get the rash again.
ETA: I used about 1/4-1/2 cup bleach in my wash to treat it. 2 tbs isn't enough.

The only other thing I'd try is probiotics for your daughter. Something much stronger than yogurt, like Jarrow Baby Dophilus. If her body can kick the yeast once and for all maybe she won't keep reinfecting the diapers.

I've heard different babies/yeast infections respond differently to different prescription creams. We tried clotrimazole and had good luck with that for a few of the yeast infections, but then it didn't work anymore on the last 2. We have used nystatin for the last 2 and it has worked in getting rid of it. I'm nervous about using too much of it on her skin. I wish they came in bigger tubes. Maybe they do...I'll have to ask.

I wonder if you use the freetimes all day with the stay dry if things would work better....

We do oral probiotics for her. We open the capsules and she literally just eats the powder!

My middle child had food intolerance issues as a baby (we had the same raw and bloody rash, combined with green vomit) for about 2 months off and on until we finally figured out it was the dairy I was consuming. My daughter's definitely isn't food issues, though.

I actually think we got clotrimazole (this was over 2 years ago) the first 2 tubes we got were smallish, the last one was HUGE like three times the size. That is the one we lost almost new.

Thanks! I'll try tto. We use disposable wipes (I literally had over 2,000 wipes before my daughter was born...they weren't going to waste! lol), but I will probably get or make a tto shampoo to use for her from now on.

To clarify about the bleach, the first times she got yeast infections we continued to use cloth and would do 1/4 cup of bleach in the wash while she had the infection. When she doesn't haven an infection, we use 2tbs of bleach in the wash on a regular basis.
