Exclamation Yeast rash HELP!!!!

My 2yo has a yeast rash in his diaper area and the doctor said to use athlete's foot cream on it to get rid of it but I want to use something safe and natural.

Any suggestions? Also should I do anything to his cloth diapers?

I've used out with a lot of success but if you want natural maybe try gentian violet? Use sposies though or your diapers will be purple. If you are nursing treat your nipples too. And probiotics to

Re: Yeast rash HELP!!!!

When my kids were little I used Tea Tree Oil powder. I found it at Whole Foods. It really helps keep the area dry while fighting the yeast. It's in with the athlete foot treatments. Also, if you don't already have him on probiotics I'd put him on a daily supplement. If he's already taking them you might consider doubling his dose until you see improvement.
