What is the name of the ointmne that docs always prescribe for yeast rash. I have misplaced my tude and can't remember the name. Thanks in advance!~!!!!

Is it Nyastin (sp?)? The stuff that they give you for thrush?

I just read a post (ironically) by a friend at another BB right after this & she tried the Lotrimin on her DD's yeast rash & it was a nightmare!

Daria got a yeast rash after some antibiotics and she cringed everytime I put lotramin on her. So I gave up on that and tried searching for a home remedy.
Does your friend have any plain unflavored yogurt in the house? Tell her to get some that has live cultures in it but make sure it's unflavored because if it has fruit or too much sugar in it, it will feed the yeast more. Anyway tell her to put it in the fridge and then put it on her dd at every diaper change, should be gone in a few days. The coolness will help the burning, itchy feeling and the yogurt will cure the yeast infection.

Nystatin is the prescription ointment. I used Lotramin on Andrew and it cleared up overnight. His rash was more in his creases.

We've used both the prescription Nystatin and OTC Lotrimin (and generic version) and they work fine and didn't seem to affect DS (or his skin in the sesitive areas) negatively at all.

I have a lot of experience with yeasty rashes. I have used both Nystatin and Clotrimazole (generic Lotrimin). If it is bleeding, use Aquaphor and top with a creamy (like Desitin/A&D creamy) and then powder over the whole thing. The Aquaphor doesn't sting like the other stuff. When it's not bleeding use my yeast mix in the following paragraph. It will take a couple days for it to go away. Make sure to get poop off the bum asap!
Keep in mind, I typed the following in May 2002 in another thread:
Okay, that's for the "not too bad" rashes. For the really nasty ones (big rash/red bumps/yeast) I use a couple different "mixes" (it was recommended by a doctor) and I always use the big $10 tub of Balmex for those. For yeast (red bumps) I mix (approx. 1-1-1) rash ointment, hydrocortizone cream, and clotrimazole cream (athlete's foot cream), then I add powder until it's pretty thick (makes it stick nicely). For just nasty rashes without the yeast I mix the rash ointment, a little hydrocortizone, and powder. I keep these mixes in old baby jars (the Gerber's "Tender Harvest" jars have lids you can actually re-use!) and I use little cosmetic spatulas (you can get them at beauty supply stores, they are about 3" long, total, and come in bags of 25) to put the mixes on pretty thickly. Then I always powder on top of that. For bleeding rashes, I use neosporin 1-2 times, then the nasty rash mix.

We used Lotrimin when Audrey had a bad yeast infection. That's what the ped recommended and it worked like a charm!
