Treat With The Proper Remedy
Irritation rashes can be addressed by using a protective barrier cream such as petroleum jelly or zinc oxide. Apply a liberal amount to the troubled area at every diaper change and especially after baths. Yeast infections will likely need to be cleared up with a prescription anti-yeast cream from a pediatrician. Over-the-counter creams are also available to treat yeast infections, but they may not be as powerful as a prescription. Bacterial infections require an antibiotic, which needs to be prescribed by a pediatrician.
