My baby is 20 months old and has just developed a rash of his body, bum and private parts. It' s itching

It is difficult to be sure about your baby's rash without being able to see your baby.The rash sounds like a Candida rash which is a yeast infection. Give your baby Nystatin oral solution 1ml 4 times a day by mouth for 5 days. Also apply Nystatin Cream to the rash at least twice a day until the rash clears.
