Strange Spots On Bum

5 Replies
ssmith - March 9

My dd has had these spots on her bum (well actually on the folds of her va___a too) for the past several days, maybe even pushing a week. It doesn't look like your typical diaper rash, and it doesn't get better with air, or cream either. They are just little red / pink spots. She actually had a couple that looked like little water blisters (no, it isn't chicken pox). Is this what a yeast infection looks like? I'm not sure if it warrants having a Dr check it out or not. I was wondering if maybe it was an allergic reaction to a new food / milk? Or maybe teething? Anyway, I am stumped.....any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Does is hurt her? Sorry, Can't help you out here, but I'd call your pedi anyway, just to make sure. You never know and better safe than sorry. Good luck.

No, I don't think it hurts her at all..... I am not sure if it might be a bit itchy, although she has also just "discovered" there's more of her body "down below", so I can't really tell!

Yes, maybe yeast which will need nystatin to cure. OTC creams won't work with yeast.

yes they do. If you buy OTC Canesten, it is the same as the canesten you get as a prescription (the cream). My dd had this as well, we used the canesten, and gone in a few days. Good luck.
