How Do You Tell the Difference Between a Diaper Rash and a Yeast Infection in Your Baby?

Initially at the start of the rash it is very hard to tell the difference between a diaper rash and a yeast infection in the diaper region. What normally alerts parents that it is not a regular diaper rash is that it does not respond to the normal creams and ointments you may use for such times. If a diaper rash is not responding to diaper rash creams it is possible that it is a yeast infection. Yeast infection symptoms of a diaper rash include;

  • A very red rash that has raised borders
  • Satellite lesions around the main rash that are inf lammed
  • Scaly skin
  • Rash is present after 2 days of treatment with diaper rash creams
  • Present in the skin folds of the groin area

There are over the counter creams that can be used to treat the rash, talk to your pharmacist about your options. If the baby also has the following symptoms;

  • fever
  • oozing fluid from the rash
  • open sores

Take the baby to a doctor as it may be a bacterial rather than fungal problem and you need an accurate diagnosis before you can find an effective cream to treat it.
