My kids never had white cheesy stuff. My son was a little chubby and used to get red bumps under his arms and in his neck folds, I used to wash it all the time and put powder and sometimes I would put diaper rash cream on it, Also, try to keep her cool, in hot weather just let her wear a T-shirt or tank top or diaper only, I let my son wear just a diaper or diaper and T-shirt alot in hot weather because he was so chubby and got hot easily.

My daughter had it too when she was really young, a friend told me it was formula that dribbled down into her neck (not sure I believe it), and sometimes it got into her armpits too. Just make sure to take a warm washcloth after every feeding to her neck and put a little powder in the area. Doing that helped keep it clear. If it gets worse the doctor can prescribe a cream for it.

we used to call it cheese! lol. uhg. so gross! just wash and REALLY REALLY dry it well. they get it from sweating or haveing moisture left there after a bath. my summer baby daughter had it all the time. armpits, neck, u name it. my son even got it on his wiener! they may scream their heads off when u try to dry it REALLY REALLY well btu that just means ur doing it right
