Advice on Diaper Rash

I daycare my gd (4 months). Her bottom was nice & healthy on Tues morning when I arrived. By Wed she was all red! So I'm starting to think "is it something I am doing different? I change her all the time, I usually clean her bottom with just water and a clean cloth. I tend to use cotton fitted diapers and wool covers. Her parents use pockets or Freetimes during waking hours. My thoughts are perhaps the wool is just too hot?? It has been warm in her house lately (South Carolina). I used a diaper cream with zinc oxide yesterday and left the wool off. I even let her go without a diaper as much as possible but saw no improvement. How do you know if it is a yeast infection? Any advise will be appreciated.

Try wiping her off with a dry washcloth after the wet one.

Re: Advice on Diaper Rash

Yes, I did dry her real well today and kept the wool off. I did not use any diaper cream today. I am seeing some improvement. She flipped herself over for the 1st time today! And did it again for her mom so she believes me!
