This sounds like a candida infection. It may have started as a result of your little girl being given an antibiotic recently. She may also have a threadworm infection. You will need to get several medicines to help her:1]Nystatin Oral Solution 1ml in her mouth 4 times a day for 5 days;2]Apply Nystatin Cream to her rash twice daily;3]Give her a good probiotic such as Probiflora Children's once daily for 10 days;4] Give her Vermox syrup for possible threadworms 5ml twice daily for 3 days.
