I am trying so hard to avoid calling DS's doctor constantly.. I have the first time mom syndrome and it seems I have a million questions.

So I have been battling this diaper rash for forever it seems. We have tried a million and one different things. I am getting ready to try some of your suggestions for earlier.. I talked to the doctor about it on Wednesday and she wasn't too concerned because it isn't THAT bad and she wants me to continue with what I am doing... Anyways that is not why I am posting this. During his bath last night I noticed he has little white bumps at the top of his butt crack. I looked it up and I believe it is a yeast diaper rash now. Dr. Sears.com says to use Clotrimazole under your regular cream two times a day. He still doesn't seem to bothered by the rash... I think it upsets me more.

Do you think I should call the doctor about this or use the Clotrimazole for a few days. I am not sure how serious a yeast rash is and I am trying to avoid google.

If it would make you feel better call. That is what they are there for. Otherwise I would just try the cream for a few days and if it doesn't get better then I would call for sure.

I know my DS had a yeast infection on his bottom when he was little and it got awfull. We ended up having to get a prescription cream to get rid of it. So I would do what will make you feel the most comfortable.

I would call the doctors office and speak to a nurse.. See what she would recommend.. This way you don't have to go to the doctors office and try what she suggests..

Ditto to talking to the nurse... we have a nurseline attached to our clinic and it was a life-saver with my first kids.

And if it were me, I'd probably try the cream, I had to use that on my older daughter's bum when she was little. I would also try to give some nekkie time everyday, maybe 10 mins or so on some towels etc... babies love nekkie time and it gives their bits a chance to air out.

Nekkie time... lol that is to cute. This is something we do anyways to help avoid and treat diaper rash. I give him 15-30 diaper-free minutes 3 times a day.

Did you find this helped with the yeast rash?

ETA: I just called "our" nurse (the one attached to our doctor) and she wasn't in today. They told me to call her in the morning.

I would call just to be on the safe side. I'm not really one for taking generic advice from books.

I'd call... it sounds like a yeast rash. Abram had that at 1 or two weeks old and we had to use that cream that you mentioned (I think anyway - same antifungal cream you use for athletes foot) two or three times a day and it made the skin practically peel away - it looked really nasty and i ended up calling bc it looked almost like it was burning his skin even though it didnt bother him at all, but the dr said that was normal.

It did help, but didn't rid her of it. Just kind of helped it not get waaay worse. Moisture will just help feed the yeast. (if that's what it is). Let us know what you find out!
