Yeast and Gentian Violet

Ds has a yeast rash in his diaper area. I picked up some 7th generation disposable diapers and gentian violet to use on it, but I have never used it before so I was looking for any info available on it. I applied it tonight and boy was it messy. Ds's entire diaper area and part of his stomach are purple. ANy tips on applying without making a mess? Also how long do I need to use it? The Dr said it is a very mild case, so I am guessing it shouldn't take long to clear up. I am anxious to get him back in cloth, I hate sposies. I don't know how I will even tell when the rash is gone as I can't see the pink because his skin is now dyed purple.

Me either. I do know GV stains BIG TIME! I used an over the counter anti-fungal cream and my DD's bad rash was gone in a day. The thrush was much harder to get rid of.

HTH,
