My 10 month old daughter has had, what i thought was a stubborn diaper rash at 1st, a yeast problem since the begining.
we have religiously bought and used canneston cream this works but then by the end of the week the rash stars back again. sometimes she'll have a rash free bum in the morning then when i change her peed diaper a couple hours later she can actually be raw & bleeding a little! we've been pretty on top of this but how long will this go on?
she can't go through her life with cream on her panties? she will be potty trained and i dont want to have to keep such a close eye on her "privacy". she shouldn't have this as an ongoing issue should she?
she is my 1st baby girl and i have never had personal experience with yeast infection maintanence~ what should i do?
the doc says it should go away on its own but if that's true i am having a hard time believing it!
she's so itchy she scratches while shes being changed and if you arent successful in keeping her hands away she will cut herself with her little nails even though they are kept short.
ive seen her once rocking her bum on the carpet then i clued in she must be trying to get relief.
i feel so bad for her and nobody seems to know any better than we do!
its not a diaper allergy and the onlycream we put on her now is canestan and once in a while vaseline when she has a clear bum but intermitantly as to keep her bum as un interfered with as possible.
