You do not mention your baby's age. The most likely cause of her rash is a nappy rash.Apply Bepanthen Nappy Cream after every nappy change for two or three days. If the rash does not clear then the other possible cause is a candida infection, especially if she has had an antibiotic recently. Apply Nystatin cream twice daily until the rash clears.Also give her a probiotic drops such Reuterina 5 drops in her mouth once daily for 5 days.
