This photo shows a red diaper rash in the area under the diaper.
Any diaper rash that lasts longer than a couple days can become infected with yeast. Note the red spots outside the main area of redness.
If a yeast infection is suspected, clotrimazole cream (such as Lotrimin; over-the-counter) should be applied 4 times per day.
