I found a great home remedy for this : 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, 2 cups of water, 1 crushed glove of garlic. Mix well and let sit for 30 minutes. Then apply. *Do NOT heat the garlic it will destroy its' bacteria fighting abilities.
Yeast bacteria can live up to 5 days on baby’s skin and clothes even after the rash has cleared. Be sure to disinfect baby’s diapers, clothes, and sheets in between uses and up to 5 days after the rash has cleared to prevent reoccurrence. To disinfect add one (1) of the following safe ingredients to the wash cycle of baby's clothes, sheets and diapers.
1. 1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
2. 100 drops of Liquid Grapefruit Seed Extract
3. 1/4 cup of Country Save Oxygen Powered Bleach
4. 1/4 cup of Vaska Chlorine Free Oxygen Bleach
5. 1/4 cup of Seventh Generation Chlorine Free Bleach
Acidophilus can be found in many foods including special acidophilus milk, yogurt, carrots, rice starch, bananas, soybeans, garlic and garbanzo beans. In addition, acidophilus can be purchased in capsules, powder form, liquids, and tablets at health food stores. Feeding baby foods high in acidophilus or adding one teaspoon of acidophilus powder per day to baby’s bottle can restore the good bacteria. If baby is on solids, it is best to give the acidophilus supplement one hour before meals.
I hope this works for you it certainly did for my twin girls. :)
