rash under neck

If just regular rash medicine isnt working it may be a yeast infection, my neice had one under her neck when she was a baby. You can get your dr to prescribe you something or you can just go to your pharmacy and ask them if they could recomend some antifungal cream that you can buy over the counter. When my daughter had a yeast infection along with a diaper rash her pediatrician just told me to buy some athletes foot cream and put that on it ALONG with the rash medicine ( butt past works wonders!) and it was completely gone w/in the next 2 days

Sorry for the double post but noticed someone elses advice. Please do NOT use baby powder. Most doctors these days don't even recommend baby powder for adults never mind babys. The particals are so fine and when you inhale them they stick in your lungs thus putting you are risk for such things as lung cancer. I assume you don't smoke near your babies so why would you sprinkle a fine powder that has the same effect as smoking around them?

my daughter is 7 months and gets rashes under er neck as well. because of her teething she drools alot. i just wipe it alot, try to keep her dry. use an absorbant bib as wll. see if it helps. Giveing a cold rung out washcloth (clean lol, naturally) for her to chew on can help with her gums if it is teething and the washcloth can absorb some of the droolies.

If she's teething and drooling alot just make sure to keep wiping under her chin and neck and try to get some air circulation there. This happened with my son and we just kept wiping and would get him to lie back and blow on his neck and made a game out of it.
