When is a diaper rash more than a rash?
August 25, 2011
According to Dr. Sears, a rash which is “red, raised, patchy rash with sharp borders, mostly over the genitalia but with satellite spots sprinkled around the diaper area,” may be a result of an overgrowth of yeast. Yeast rashes are more common after antibiotic use. If your baby has a prolonged diaper rash which doesn’t respond to treatment with barrier creams, it may be yeast and require a different approach.
If you suspect a yeast rash, try our Diaper Rash and Thrush salve. It’s an all-natural herbal solution for persistent, inflamed diaper rash. It can also be used on your nipples if they’re yeast-infected, and does not need to be washed off prior to nursing. It’s diaper safe and compatible with all diapers including cloth.diaper rash and thrush salve dr. sears organic skin deep database thrush yeast diaper rash
