My 4 week old (tomorrow) Ds was diagnosed with a yeast (the Dr called it fungal) rash today at his appointment. The doctor gave me nystatin powder and told me to put a cd friendly oitment over it to keep it in place. I have a few questions though, that I hope yall can help me with.
1. Is the nystatin powder even safe for cd's?
2. Can I use coconut oil over it? I don't have any diaper rash cream at all since I usually just rub him down with coconut oil.
3. Do I need to do anything to my diapers other than just wash them like normal?
It's not a super bad rash, just some redness in the creases of his pelvic area and his bum.
Huh, good questions! I would use a liner, personally. I think your bigger issue is getting the yeast out of the diapers so he doesn't get reinfected, but I don't know much about that. Ask Google? LOL...
