HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE A DIAPER RASH FROM A YEAST RASH?

At Aquaphor Baby, we know that when your baby has a diaper rash, you want to make her feel better as soon possible. In order to effectively treat a diaper rash, it is important to know whether it is caused by irritation or a yeast infection. We partnered with pediatrician Dr. Alanna Levine and here some key facts on how you can distinguish and treat the different rashes:

Diaper Rash Due to Irritation

Symptoms of Diaper Rash

  • Red and flat rash

Treatment of Diaper Rash

  • Frequent diaper changes
  • Exposure to air
  • Thick layer of Aquaphor Baby Diaper Rash Cream or Healing Ointment

Diaper Rash Due to Yeast Infection

Symptoms of Diaper Rash

  • Individual raised dots or many dots that came together to cover a larger area

Treatment of Diaper Rash

  • Check with your Child’s doctor as medication with an anti-fungal might be needed

Any diaper rash that doesn’t clear up in a few days, or gets worse, warrants a call to the doctor.
