If the infection is IN the penis, I would definitely use the antibiotics. But I have always had amazing luck with CJ's Butt butter. Anytime DS got a rash it would clear it up in no time.

I also switched from pockets to prefolds, I would get build up on the suede cloth and it would never get as clean as my prefolds. Since switching, I have had almost no issues.

If you want to treat the yeast you could buy some 7 day monastat and put that on him and after slather on some plain yogurt to repopulate the skin with beneficial bacteria.
Ok thanks. I will bleach the diapers tomorrow. I've been using pockets, but have enough prefolds to switch. So.. I'll bleach all the pockets, switch to prefolds, and then bleach those as well.

I have non-chlorine bleach.. does the non-chlorine bleach disinfect like the regular bleach does?

God bless!
