Yeast Infection Diaper Rash (cont.)

Prevention

Topical therapy, including barrier creams and disposable diapers, decreases the incidence and extent of yeast diaper rash. Frequent diaper changes with the superabsorbent disposable diapers create an environment that does not let yeast thrive. Cleaning that is gentle and minimizes skin breakdown can help as well. Air exposure is also helpful.
