yeast diaper rash

My 2 year old daughter always gets yeast diaper rash, or what I think it is. I give her a bath every night with no bubbles and I change her diaper like every 20 min. I have tried OTC anti fungals and its not clearing it up. I am about to take her to the pediatrician soon but any ideas on why this is happening? My husband gets athletes foot from time to time, but I spray the tub with Lysol before each use. Please help

I have the same problem with my 11month old it will go away but come back!! Her pediatrician gave me a powder to put on top of her new cream and its worked very well so far, but what he told me was just the fact of her being in a diaper to let her be diaper less as much as possible and always make sure she's 100% dry before I put her creams on and change her diaper as much as possible I've herd how yogurt helps with yeast plain with active cultures and ive been giving it to her everyday so far its looking better! Hope this helps :)
