Myeightkiddies Posted November 15, 2011 Share Posted November 15, 2011 For yeast (diaper or thrush) I usually crush acidophilus and mix with a few drops of water to make a paste. Then I put that on the infected area (rub on gums if thrush or on bottom if yeast rash). Usually the rash goes away in a couple of days without any of that stomach upset (if dealing with thrush since thrush meds cause tummy issues). With the bottom I would put the paste on then dab very lightly some Desitin (or similar product) to help lock the paste in place (so it doesn't immediately wash away when baby urinated). If a really bad yeast infection, which sounds to be the issue with the OP's little babe, I would use a yeast cream (OTC for yeast infections) twice a day. Other times throughout the day I would use the acidophilus paste/Desitin treatment. Typically I'm not a huge fan of Desitin but when they cry from the burning of the urine touching the rash, it is nice to give them relief.
