Help Me Identify This Rash. :(

Is it yeast? I thought the dotty rash was yeast or detergent build-up, so I was using TTO and apple cider vinegar and that helped. Also switched to Charlie's soap. But now it's back and she not only has the dots on her privates but like red welts on her bum and a bit circle of redness around her bum (not the anus, but her whole bum)? Also redness up on her belly. Hard to get good pics of the welts/redness on her back thigh and bum but I tried. She was wearing a flip organic cotton prefold inside a Flip cover.

I enhanced this pic a bit to contrast the redness better so you can see better where the rash is. It's not this pronounced but it's bad enough.

Re: Help Me Identify This Rash. :(

I am really uninformed about this, but Could the little ones be pimples? My DS (2) gets them on his but sometimes...

Looks like an allergy to me. I would say detergent where it looks like the whole diaper area is red. My son looked like that in Pampers.

I'd say she's sensitive to the detergent where it's red all over where the diaper covers, or an ammonia problem. Do your diapers smell like ammonia? As far as the dots, I'm not 100% sure. I don't think it is yeast, but I'm not an expert.

She also could be sensitive to PUL. Do you have any wool or fleece covers? Maybe give her some nakey time too.

Re: Help Me Identify This Rash. :(

i think it looks like an allergy or sensitivity. She may be allergic to your detergent, or perhaps PUL or the inner material of your diapers
