Infant yeast infection and diaper rash!

Infant yeast infection and diaper rash!

So, people always offer advice about parenting, but why does it seem like they forget significant things like a yeast infection! Now for those of you that do not know, both girls and boys can get yeast infection.
Back story: my daughter was congested and I was told that it would go away within a week since it was just a common cold. She only 3 months old at the time and cold medicine is a no-no. Well the cold lasted 3 weeks and she ended up with an ear infection. She was prescribed antibiotics which led to her yeast infection. Please know that it looked just like a diaper rash, but a few days ago I noticed the discharge (sorry for those that are squeamish)! What was news to me was that a yeast infection can spread and gets under the neck from drooling (keep plenty of bibs around). Are you ready for the remedy??? Lotrimin AF!!!! Yes, the anti fungal foot cream! And a sitz bath (baking soda bath). My, my, my you learn something new everyday!
