Is it diaper rash?

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

My 9 month old daughter has had a bit of diaper rash before, but she's teething right now and it looks like she has 5 or 6 little pimples down there now. It's not excessively red, or widespread and doesn't seem to bother her. Does this sound like regular diaper rash or is it something I might should ask my doctor about? This is my first child and we just haven't run across this before!

Hi Dawn,

This is a Yeast Diaper rash, VERY common with teething babies. Yet, even babies who are not teething get it. Go to the drug store and pick up Canesten Topical cream for Athlete's foot; yes for Athlete's foot, not for the internal Yeast Infection thet women use. The Diaper rash strain is exactly that of athlete's foot. The cream is NOT harsh so don't worry about that. It is actually soothing to her, b/c it will actually be a little itch. It will clear up in a day or two. No worries :)
