ATT: LYNN &  PEADiTRICIAN

Hi Lynn!
You''ve replied a while back staying that your little one had the same problem (rash on the scrotum), i''ve now bought the bennest cream, been applying since friday, but the rash still there. Did it take that long for it to go away too.
Doc, my 14month old has now had this since the 11th june. I''ve applied the Nystacid and it cleared the rash on the bum, but not on the scrotum. Any idea what it could be. Last you mentioned candida rash.

This rash is still probably a candida rash which has caused a mild eczema reaction. Apply a little Mylocort cream twice daily for 3 days to clear this rash.Alternate the Mylocort with the Nystatin at nappy changes but do not use the Mylocort more than twice daily.
