Candida diaper rash is a common infection in infants. It causes a red, itchy rash on the bottom and around the genitals. The rash is caused by a fungus called Candida albicans.
Treatment for candida diaper rash depends on the severity of the infection. Mild cases may only require simple home treatments, such as using non-antibacterial soap and water to clean the area and letting the skin air dry. Severe cases may require prescription medication.
If you think your child has candida diaper rash, call your doctor for advice. Treatment should begin as soon as possible to prevent the infection from spreading.
