My 2yo has been on amoxicillin for the past week because of a little pneumonia that developed during his croup spell last week, and now he has a horrible yeast rash on his boy parts. He's allergic to dairy, so yogurt is out of the question. Besides cutting down on any sugar intake he has (juice, mainly), is there anything else I can do? My only option is to take him in so that they can give him MORE medicine, right? I can't remember...for yeast they usually just prescribe a cream, right?

You can use anti fungal cream (like foot cream) or buy womans yeast infection cream to use on him. However make sure you mix 1/2 & 1/2 with an actual rash cream (desitin, triple paste, etc.) before you put it on his bottom. I usually squirt a little of the yeast cream on my hand & then put equal amounts of rash cream on my hand, mix them around a little & then apply on baby's bottom. We cloth diaper & either the foot cream or a yeast cream always clears it up when we have to battle a yeast rash thanks to the diapers having yeast in them.

Probiotics- you can get children's ones at health food stores or get some powder form and put them in a smoothie or something. Yeast is not fun :/ good luck!

I had heard the same about canesten cream... But I had never heard to mix it with anything. When my nephew had a yeast infection we just put canesten on it.

Giving probiotics will be really good for it, too! Good luck, that gets really painful! Lots of air time will help too. My nephew had one so bad that it opened his skin and made him scream to pee -- we just left him without a diaper toddling around as much as possible to keep the damp out of it.

I hope he is feeling better soon!

GL! That sounds horrible, especially after battling croup and pneumonia!

That's awful, DD had a TERRIBLE one that would NOT leave no matter what I did, I think it was 3 weeks or more. I got a cream at the clinic, which was a mix of an anti fungal with a hydro cortisone cream for the redness and swelling and it still didn't work, took a week and a half i think to clear up. Something that really helped me was switching off disposable wipes. My friend suggested it, and when I used cloth with plain water to wipe her, she started to get better right away. I have had good success in the past with canes tan as well, although I still like to have it recommended by the doc, then i just go to the pharmacy and get it off the shelf, rather than paying more for the prescription he wrote (actually I think I had some left over from my last yeast infection that I used :0, that was with DS. Oh, I don't' bother mixing it, but I do put it JUST on the red spots and then cover with a regular diaper cream. except I have heard regular diaper creams aren't good for yeast, because they basically box it in and make a green house on the bum, which makes the yeast grow more. LOTS of running naked is the best cure, but I hate doing that when we have carpet and rent :{

My dd had one when she was that age and pediatrician gave us cream that was half antifungal half cortisone. We also were told to stop using the baby wipes and just a cloth with water. I bought make up pads. They worked well. Good luck. They are awful.

I ended up taking him since in his insurance covers the expense of the cream. I was NOT told about the baby wipes though! I do remember reading something about thst a long time ago. I completely forgot. I thought I was imagining things when it seemed like wiping him made it worse/more painful.

Thank you all so much for coming to the rescue like that! I'll gate him into the hardwood room and let him run nakey. Who knows? Maybe he'll even want to get a headstart on his potty training and use the baby potty. A mom can hope!

Poor kid. In addition to cream, I'd give him some probiotics. There are vegan sources and also a drink called good belly that should be dairy free. Also coconut oil is anti-fungal.

I never would have thought of coconut oil! I'll have to try that for next time, if there is one. The nystatin did the trick pretty quickly this go around, at least.
