Question Regarding Toddler Boy Having a Yeast Infection

My son was recently diagnosed with having a yeast infection around his genital area. The dr prescribed Nystatin (sp?). I used it for maybe a day and my son complained that it burned. I'm not sure if this is suppose to be a reaction to the meds. My husband said it burns because it's working. I've never heard of something like that before.

Yeast Infection in 9 Month Old?

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...
