How To Treat DiaperYeast Rash
Hey everyone, I am here today to do a tutorial for you on how to treat a diaper rash. I will be covering two types of diaper rashes. The inevitable regular diaper rash that almost every baby will get at some point, and the dreaded yeast diaper rash. Emilia is six months old now,
and I would say up until around the four and a half month mark, I was definitely a Pamper's mommy. Around that time, I started getting really concerned on how often she was getting diaper rashes, and if there wasn't a diaper rash, there was usually some sort of red irritation.
So I started to do research and I was horrified at how many chemicals are in baby products. That is the time that I discovered The Honest Company. The key to preventing and treating a diaperrash is to create a barrier. Before we used The Honest Company,
I would use Desitin and baby powder at every diaper change. Since we have switched brands, now I use The Honest Company's Organic HealingBalm. They do have a diaper rash cream but I prefer the Organic Healing Balm because it serves multiple purposes. We use it for the diaper changes,
cuts, scratches, I use it, it's awesome. I highly recommened it. This is a shot of it. It is pH balanced, hypoallerginic, and plantbased. I cannot say enough good things about this company. I will have a link down below so you can check it out
if it's something that you're interested in. Which brings us to the dreaded yeast diaper rash!!! Luckily, my mother had some tips for me so it saved me a trip to the pediatrician. You can go to any drugstore or pharmacy, and you are looking for an antifungal cream.
Thrush When to Worry Parents
If you notice white patches in your baby'smouth, she may have something called thrush. Thrush is a yeast infection that's extremelycommon in babies. It looks icky, but the good news is it's not hard to treat. Here are waysto know your baby may have thrush. There are white patches on her tongue, lips, gums, roofof her mouth, or inner cheeks. It's sometimes confused remaining breast milk or formulaleft on the tongue. But milk should easily wipe off, and thrush won't. The yeast mayalso spread to her diaper area where it will appear as a shiny, red rash. Another signis that she's fussy while breastfeeding. She may pull away because her mouth is sore. Ifyour baby has thrush, your will probably
prescribe an antifungal solution and it shouldclear up in a few days. Make sure you use the treatment for as long as it's prescribed.By the way, if you have red, itchy or burning nipples, or you feel a shooting pain in yourbreast after nursing, you probably have the infection, too. You may need to take Ibuprofenfor pain and apply an antifungal cream to your nipples. You may also need to pump fora few days until you heal. Treating both mom and baby is important, so you don't pass theinfection back and forth to one another.
