Treating yeast rash in cloth diapers.
Appearance: acne-like pimples
Note: if your baby's rash does not look like this, check out our diaper rash guide for other types of diaper rash.
Location: entire bum
Cause: consumption of antibiotics, over-consumption of citrus fruits, sugar, non-organic dairy, or gluten
The 3 Step Cure:
- Apply a yeast-rash diaper cream, anti-fungal cream like Lotrimin, or a 50-50 diluted mix of Bragg's apple cider vinegar (ACV) and water at every diaper change for up to 7 days
- Feed your baby foods high in acidophilus (e.g. organic plain greek yogurt) or give baby 1 tsp a day of a probiotic like Bio-Kult, Prescript Assist, or Probiota 12 for 7 days.
- Add 1 cup of bleach to every cloth diaper load up to 5 days after the rash has disappeared.
NOTE: It will take roughly a week for the rash to clear and another week to kill the bacteria in your cloth diapers.
