what does a toddler diaper area yeast infection look like? what are the symptoms?

Posted by mommy

my daughter has a rash on her private part.  External only.  Went to the dr. last was just one bump.  he said use ticture iodine in case of staff.  2 days later she got a fever for 2 days.  that went away but the rash is still there and looks like diaper rash to me.  no openining or anything.. just red, raised images of diaper rash.  Dr. nurse on phone said could be yeast infection.  Does this sound accurate?

That sounds right to me. My kids have had yeast infections and I used over-the-counter yeast infection cream...cleared it up in 36 hours. Always talk to your doctor first before using any type of medication though.
