Rash, Rash, Rash!!!!!

Where do I begin? I took Bella into the pediatrician's office for what I thought was sever diaper rash. Her doctor sent me home with medication for a yeast infection and Thrush.

Baby Has Yeast Infection

My 9 month-old has what I thought was a diaper rash, but at her 9 month check-up, her pediatrician said it is a yeast infection and prescribed Nystatin to clear it up. It hasn't cleared up yet, and I've used the entire tube. I also tried Lotrimin and that hasn't worked either. I change her frequently and even let her go diaperless for a few minutes a day. She also eats yogurt every day for breakfast. Don't know what else to do. Any suggestions on how to get rid of yeast infections?

Almost 2Yr Old with Bad Diaper Rash!

I need help. My daughter is almost 2 and she had lose poopies for about a day and a half, she still have lose poopie but the worst diaper rash I have ever seen. I change her all the time. She has never even had a rash when she's been sick or as a infant. This is as red as red gets. She won't even sit or let you go near her to wipe or for cream. I feel like the cream is just making it more moist and not helping. I have tried the old fashion ways and still no help. Is there medication or something a doctor can get to help, or is someone out...

How to cure itchy head after cradle cap on infant?

I hope someone can help/or have experience with this. My 9 month old son had cradle cap as a baby that went away somewhat on his own (with help from me picking of course). Well for the past 5 months his head itches sooo bad that he scratches all day but most intense at night. For this reason he scratches himself awake every 3 hours at night (draining me!). I have seen 2 doctors and a dermatologist and all they keep giving me is steroid and pseudo-steroid creams that do not work and I refuse to keep using. I have tried olive oil, jojoba oil,...

Natural Remedies for Red, Itchy Rash

My 21 month old boy has this large red rash on his bum/lower back. It started out small and didn't bother him and it was getting better but just this morning I got him out of bed and it is much worse and he is itching it now. The red areas are slightly raised and some areas are peeling. We are letting him run around with out his diaper as much as possible and we use Seventh Generation diapers so I know it isn't a sensitivity to his diaper. So, far we have just been using Earth's Best diaper rash onitment. I am wondering if any one has...

WHY Are My Kids Getting Sick So Much This Summer??

I am at my wits end, SO frustrated that my usually healthy children seem to have been sick ALL summer! I have 3- ages 4, 2, and 7 months. They don't attend daycare (I am home with them all day) and have very little exposure to other children other than at church weekly and my 4 year old's swimming lessons (which I rarely even take the little ones to). They are on Juice Plus supplements daily, as well as a multivitamin and vitamin C supplements. Here are the illnesses that we have experienced- -First, strep with 2 of the kids, we...

Small Oval Rash on 11 Month Old Neck

Last week I noticed a small oval rash on the back of my 11 month old neck. I took her to the doctor and they said it may be ringworm, but they were not 100% sure. Although it is not circular in shape, just red and oval (looks more like burn mark) l. I have been placing Lotrimin on the area as told by her pediatrician, but the rash looks redder and larger with the Lotrimin. Has anyone had this experience before? I will be taking her back this week if not better.

Baby Yeast Infection

My 7 month old son has a yeast infection. I called the doctor and she said that it is because he has diarrhea from his teething and it can cause a yeast infection easily. She told me to get Lotrimin and use it everyday on him and give him baths in baking soda. I have done all of these and it seemed to get better. Now in the last couple of days it has gotten worse again. Does anybody know of another way to get rid of this? He cries so much when I change him, I just feel so bad for him.

Baby Skin Concern

I have a 14 week old son who's a bit of a chunker. He's got those adorable deep chub creases in unusual places like the middle of his thigh, etc. The problem is that pretty much daily he develops a certain stink along his neck, in his elbow crease, behind his knee and in said thigh crease. Those areas are usually red and irritated, sometimes so much so that they crack or ooze a little(thus the stink I guess). I've been gently washing them with either just water or a little baby wash (Aveno) then making sure to dry them as well as I can,...
