My daughter had this, it seemed to get worse before it got better. It got to the point where it was cracked and bleeding so I took her to urgent care and they told me I had been applying it wrong. I guess your supposed to apply the nysatain and then put some type of diaper ointment like A & D, Buttpaste or even Vaseline over it to protect it. Once I started doing that it worked better. I think with just the medicine alone, it gets wiped up or absorbed into the diaper rather than the skin. Hope it helps, poor baby.

Call the doctor back and ask them for something else, I don't know of any home treatment for a two year old.
