Diaper Rash/Yeast Infection

Ok I've read a couple of requests on here for treatment for what you think is diaper rash, but in reality it is a yeast infection. My 18mo son was on two antibiotics for 10 days, because of pneumonia and a recurrent staph infection. This in turn caused Diarrhea which then caused bad diaper rash and now a yeast infection. The dr. started him on nystatin last friday, we took him back yesterday as it is no better and now we have more nystatin and oral diflucan. We just started the diflucan last night. The dr. said to put on the nystatin then...

I Have Been Using Nystatin for a Horrible Diaper Rash

Has anyone had any problems with the Nystatin? The dr said to use it 2-3 times a day. She has blister like red blemishes near her private. It's right along the diaper line. I am pretty sure that it's not the diapers since we have used them since she was born. I use the pampers. The Nystatin is the only thing that I can think of...

Nipple Pain During Breastfeeding

My question is actually for my sister. She says that breastfeeding is terribly painful for her! She cries everytime. It's the nipple not the breast.

I did not have pain during nursing so I don't know but do you think this will go away in time or is there something eles? She has breast implants. Could that be an issue? I think it would be...

Nystatin Expertise' for Rash Infection

Thanks to all of your advice for my son's perpetual rash I did get him in to the dr and he is being treated for a yeast infection with nystatin ointment. We've been applying it w/ every diaper change and using warm washclothes to clean him- anyone know how long it should take before its cleared up. Its only been about 2 days since we started but I'm anxious because we have tried so much in the past with no avail.

Nystatin & Diarrhea

We seem to be in a downward spiral of maladies! Three weeks ago, my 6 mo.-old was diagnosed with Thrush. (Which in itself is weird since he's on the older side for Thrush, and I'm no longer nursing.) We were given Nystatin, and after now our third round it has proven to be ineffective. During all of this, he also developed diarrhea, and subsequently a HORRIBLE diaper rash that we're finding hard to battle. Several of you have suggested Gentian Violet, and I've heard it's messy. I'm OK with his mouth being blue/purple for a few days. But is...

Weird Symptoms After Mt Nine Month Old Was Given Nystatin for Thrush.

It has been a little over a week since my daughter was prescribed Nystatin for thrush, she also had her shots that were overdue on the same day. She did not feel too well, so i thought it may be her shots. She now has a diaper rash that resembles tiny blisters, slight vomiting occasionally, gas, her fever is now 102.00, and she is slight scratching in more place than one, but no rash. It is 4:00 a.m. and i am wondering should i keep an eye on her and take her to DR. in the morning or should i take her now????
