My lil guy (22 months) had a nasty yeast infection in his diaper area a few months ago, and we finally got rid of it after months of creams, including prescription yeast infection creams.
However, every other day or so his little "area" gets extremely red and it seems painful to the touch. We use Desitin, but I dont know what else to do. We change his diaper as often as possible (and the day care does the same).
I think a part of the problem is that he doesn't get bothered by a wet or dirty diaper, so during the night he never wakes up, so he is usually soaked in the morning. He always sleeps the whole night through (7pm-6:30am)
We've started just lathering him up in Desitin (recommended by the dr), but he's still really red some days. And I dont know if its soley because of this, but he just HATES to have his diaper changed. The minute I lay him down, every time, he throws a fit and "cries" (no tears) and I just feel like the worst mother ever.
