Jacob has a strange rash on his little bum. At first I thought it was eczema and now it looks like little pimples. Carolyn I think Kira had the same thing, what was her rash? Any ideas from anybody else? Daycare thinks it might be yeast. I'm taking him today at 4:00 to let the dr look at it. It doesn't seem to bother him. I'll let you know what dr says.

Yeah, Kira has had that for the past couple of weeks. Is the skin red and then there are things that look like whitehead pimples? That's yeast. We tried Lotrimin, which didn't really help, but Triple Paste AF cleared it up really quickly. Our local stores don't carry it but our pediatrician gave us some samples (then we bought a tube on Amazon).

We thought the rash was gone after a few days so we stopped the Triple Paste AF, and it flared right back up. So, one tip: keep using the Triple Paste AF three times a day even after it looks a lot better. We're going to do it for two weeks now and see if we can get it completely gone.

Yes, it looks like little whitehead pimples. I'm guessing that it is yeast. He was on an antibiotic a few weeks ago so I'm thinking that caused it. We go this afternoon to let the dr look at it. I'll let you know what she says. But it does sound like the same thing Kira had.

Carolyn it was a yeast infection. The dr prescribed some Nystatin cream to put on his rear end until it clears up. She said it should take about 5 days to clear up and then to use the cream a few more days to make sure it is gone. Thankfully it doesn't seem to bother him.

Hooray for an easy answer! I bet it clears up really fast now.
