My daughter recently got a real diaper rash for the first time. Previously she only had a pink or slightly red butt that would clear up right away with A&D ointment or Balmex. This rash was NOT responding to anything. It quickly became open sores and was obviously causing my daughter horrible pain. I called the doctor and was advised to put my daughter in a bath with baking soda and to give her lots of time with out her diaper. I did this for a few days and it still got worse, so I called again and was given the same advice. I called again 2 days later and they suggested maybe it was a yeast infection and to put her on Lamisil. She has been on that for 2 days and so far still no change. Has anyone else had experience with horrible diaper rash or yeast infections? How long should a yeast infection take to clear up? If she isnt showing progress tomorrow Im going to call again and demand to be seen.
