Gracie's Mom said...
Ohh my. How absolutely annoying that must be.
I don't know if it's the same thing but it sounds just like my daughter London's old yeast rash - also on the bum mostly but some on the arms too. Unknowingly at the time, she was a walking yeast ball all the way around.
How does your tongue look? Although yeast doesn't always show up there. Another clue to yeast is apparently the poo...I won't go into that detail, lol but you can google it if ya wanna know. Okay, well, I'll just say this, hehe, floatyish, puffyish.
We tried a ton of things for yeast but by far the winner has been CDX by Theramedix, an enzyme therapy for yeast, fungus etc. It's on the pricey side but has been well worth it. Both of my girls have/had intense yeast issues and diflucan is hard on the liver so we now just need and use the CDX. The only drawback with it is that you have to be careful if you are on any time released meds. Gracie needs to take it an hour before the time released meds are due.
GM thanks for the reply. It's interesting that you mention the tongue because mine has since become swollen and underneath some type of canker sores have appeared on it. It also has the classic yest white buds in the back. I will try and look into the yeast thing more. Don't they sell like some type of yeast infection cream for areas similar to the bum? I am sorry to hear about
both your daughters health. How old are they? Are they both sick?
