My 14 month old has had a red rash on his belly and upper diaper area for about a month. At his last checkup, his pediatrician said it looked like eczema, but it didn't make much sense to have eczema in his diaper area, since it's not dry there. He had a yeast infection in one of his fat rolls, so she said the rash was probably a yeast infection too. But the cream she prescribed (silver sulfadiazine cream) didn't clear it. So I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this. Basically, is it possible for a baby to have eczema in his diaper area?
