Rash under neck - infection?

DH and I noticed last night that LO has a small rash under her neck.  We were out late visiting family and so we inspected it more closely this morning while giving Delaney her bath.  It's a small rash, but it had some white patches on it as well.  Of course, her neck is like a sharpei and it's all the way in where the fold of her neck is and hard to get to.  I cleansed it throroughly and dried it thoroughly as well.  We'll see how it looks after her nap - do you think it might be a yeast/fungal infection?  Have any of you had experience with this?  Of course we notice this on a holiday weekend....just wondering if there is an OTC cream you may have used or if the pedi needs to prescribe something?

    Lots of girls on here have had experience with that, and I for sure have had problems with my chunky M getting chub-fold rashes.

    Our pedi told us just to be extra vigilant at keeping the area clean and dry and, if i didn't improve, to put some cortizone cream on it. 

    We never needed the cream and the rashes became less frequent/severe once he started thinning out from moving around more.

  • I'm sorry I don't have any advice since Maddie is such a lil' peanut, but I do think it's quite common, esp. in humid areas, and lots of moms have posted about it. I am sure they'll have lots of ideas and suggestions.

  • C gets it sometimes.. of course he's rashy everywhere!   Just be kind of vigillant about keeping the area clean and it will probably clear up without too much trouble.

  • We get the same thing with Izze. We'll wash and dry it and apply cornstarch to keep it dry. If it looks bad, I put a thin layer of her diaper cream (we use triple paste). It clears it up pretty quick.
