Definition of Yeast diaper rash

Yeast diaper rash: Infection in the diaper area of a baby that is caused by a yeast called Candida. Certain conditions, such as antibiotic use or excessive moisture, can upset the balance of microbes and allow an overgrowth of Candida. The infected skin is usually fiery red with areas that may have a raised red border.
