Nystatin Cream? .free. 2 kids; Arkansas 36040 posts
13th May '11

My LO had a really bad diaper rash so I started putting Calmoseptine cream on it, and when that ran out I started putting Destin on it. We went to the pedi and she said that LOs rash was a yeast rash, and prescribed us Nystatin cream to start using instead. With the Calmoseptine and Destin, the rash seemed to be clearing up a lot faster than with this Nystatin cream. The Nystatin actually seems to be making her rash flare back up. Is this normal, as in, should I continue to use it? LO has never had a rash this bad.

She might be allergic to it

We used the nystatin then put a layer of desitin cream over it.



The nystatin is to kill the yeast infection, not treat the diaper rash.

I was wondering if I should try doing that...Should I let the nystatin "soak" in before putting a layer of desitin on?

Nope, we weren't told to.

Oh okay. Well I'll start trying that and hopefully get some sort of result.

My son had a bad reaction when we used huggies for a day (we bought what was on sale that time)



It was the worst rash I had ever seen and turned into a yeast infection.. We used the nystatin with the desitin and it was gone in 3 days!

That is the same reason my son got a yeast infection! We used nystatin, the dr said to put a THIN layer on, just enough to cover it.

Ugh. This is a new pedi and I'm starting to not like her. She didn't even tell me how much to apply. She just said put it on like diaper rash cream, so I've been putting a bunch :?

It wont hurt, but it's overkill and a waste of nystatin..



I put a thin layer of nystatin, then globbed on the desitin.. Maybe find a new pedi?

I'm going to. It was the first time we saw her because we moved here and she pretty much had an attitude the whole time.



She did this "test" to see how well my LO crawls, but she wanted her to crawl on the exam table, and LO is smart and knows its up high, so she crawled slowly. The pedi says with like, a smart look on her face "She doesn't always crawl this fast, right?" And smirked. I know that's something little, but the whole appointment was like pulling teeth.

I hate snarky dr's.. Hopefully you can find a better one... My sons old pedi told me that there was no possible way he is allergic/sensitive to apples.



He had bad eczema on his face and body, we took him off apples.. It cleared up, Gave him apples for a day, he broke out again. Took them away and it cleared up, Then did it one more time just to be sure, and she still said it wasn't the apples.

Wow. We just found out my LO is sensitive to apples, which sucks because she loves them :( So far that's all she's allergic to hopefully

Well we gave her apple juice, watered down even, and it gave her a simple diaper rash. I didn't think it was because of the juice so we didn't stop giving it to her. Then it started irritating her mouth, like the corners, so we took her off it completely, that and apple sauce, and she hasn't had any issues since. My mom told me I was allergic to apples when I was little, so I guess she got it from me.



I'm allergic to cats too, so I just keep LO away from them
