I would guess heat rash? Airing out is probably the best thing.

my daughter used to get these on her but, just a few pimple looking things. it seemed to happen after we'd let her sleep in and she stayed in her wet diaper for longer than she was used to. maybe your pre-folds are causing it at night?

Re: diaper rash that looks like pimples?

My DD would get this and her former pedi kept saying it was due to moisture....wrong.

I found out it's a yeast rash. It wouldn't go away no matter was I did and it just look like small little pimples, ant bites like you said, so I never assumed anything else. Well my new pedi said it's a yeast rash and she was right. One day of the Rx antifungal cream and she was all cleared up. I then washed all my DD's dipes in hot water and used a cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle to kill any and all yeast that maybe hiding in there. No problems since

It is yeast. To get rid of, go to a store like Target and get Lotramin (Clortrimazol). You will have to go back to sposies in order to use it. Put it on 4 times a day, have nakey time as much as possible and let lo soak in the tub every day. It is a common response to antibiotics but it sometimes just happens on its own. You can PM me if you have any more questions, as I am a yeast expert because my twins always get it. And you will also have to strip your dipes to get rid of the infection in them.

Genovian violet works beautifully to get rid of yeast, you can get it at your local health store

It does turn everything purple, so I would either line your dipes with scraps, use some prefolds you don't care about turning purple or use sposies

You will also want to treat your diapers for yeast, adding a couple stock pots of boiling water to your wash and some TTO & GSE, rinse them very thoroughly and sun them out to kill anything possibly left behind

My DD gets a rash like this but it isn't just 2 or 3 bumps . It covers her entire diaper area in tiny reddish pimples that are itchy Her pediatritcian also said it was from being wet but after treating it for over a month she was finally given a rx for nystatin. The nystatin is the only thing that really gets rid of it. So turns out it was yeast....
