For the life of me we can't get rid of this stupid yeast rash! Everything makes it worse...we have tried everything the doc suggested plus a perscription...now after trying the last thing, the rash is bleeding.
poor girl, have you tried oatmeal bath? my mom always added russian herb in our baths that helps with bad rash called Beggarticks (Chereda)- has anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. I also added chamomile( natural one) to MArk's bath as well. Let me know if you need more info on that
My problem is she is SO allergic to everything and it's a yeast rash. I would rather treat it naturally is I can, I've been using the coconut oil with no luck, I've also tried the cream the doc gave her plus other stuff the doc recommended and it all just blisters her. I tried some cornstarch earlier and it blistered her worse than anything. The doc said to try athletes foot meds but I couldn't find any at the store I was at that was not in a cream form. I may have to try online to just get the med only.
Hi Amy, my little one also had a yeast infection about 4 weeks ago....The doctor prescribed Nystatin and Mupirocin Calcium Cream. The second was for the bleeding...We also had "naked time" :-) For about an hour a day on the floor with towels under her. It went away but came back....Back to doing the above routine..Now it's been gone for about a month. Amelia's skin is crazy sensitive also. She can only use Cetaphil when bathing. Oh, also, when she had her diaper rash, we put a tablespoon of baking soda in the bath.....hope your little is better soon!!!
Oh! Butt paste works best for us too!
Her doc gave the nystatin cream and it breaks her out. It's one of the things that makes her bleed. I've been doing the coconut oil because that is the only thing that I can use as lotion on her. The doc has had me try some other anti fungal things you can get from the store but I think I need to get the pure meds without the cream or anything else added. They are just harder to find. But if anyone else in the house gets a yeast infection or athletes foot we have plenty of stuff for them to use with all the different stuff we have tried with the poor girl! Lol
Put some breastmilk on it too.
