I find it odd that it is mentioned on this article that pain is not experienced with this type of diaper rash. Yeast diaper rash not only looks painful, but it can be quite painful.

Yeast infections can be quite painful and itchy! I've seen babies wail from the discomfort. Mix a little Monistat into their Desitin, and it clears quickly, and they're happy again.
