Might be because of the clothes that your baby wears.

I am also wondering if it is heat rash. I dont live where it is hot right now but maybe her underwear are to tight? she is a very active child and probley sweats in that area a lot. I noticed the rash gets worse after bath time. which I thought was because of bubble bath. But maybe its the hot water?

It could be a reaction to something she's eating. My middle two got a rash when they ate tomato sauce or chocolate. My 4 year old has finally outgrown it though, but my 3 year old still gets it. both are out of diapers too.


My favorite sound in the world is the laughter my daughters share.

doesnt seem to match symptoms of strep, no red anus. I did major searchs on the web last night. seems to fit either yeast or contact dermatitis. In fact the dermatitis fits perfect however it should be gone since I have changed soaps and things.

Can reg yeast infection cream be used on a 3 year old. Just to try it? Like modistat?

Is the skin around her anus really really red? If so you may want to have her checked for strep. Somtimes a child can be carrying the strep virus even though they are not 'sick' and this is one place that it rears it's head (pardon the 'rear' pun LOL). My daughter had the same type of rash on her butt... it kind of looked like bug bites and it was because she had strep. The rash would come and go, but it would never stay away. It would always come back again (until we got her on the right antibiotics for the strep).

If you don't notice the really red skin around the anus then I don't know what it could be.

I never new you could get such a thing on your butt cheeks. Any reason why? Probotics I assume balance out the bacteria in your body.. correct? I will have to give it a try. I have seen it sold in the drug store. Does it come in a powder form that can be mixed with a drink? My DD is very hard to get to take anything the dosent taste good. Thanks for your help

Sounds like it might be yeast. Look into some probiotics.

It could also be a heat rash, they tend to look the same. If it is, the probiotics won't hurt if you treat for yeast, though. =)

My DD has been having problems with a rash on her butt on and off for months now. It seems to go away when I put some A&D ointiment on it but only comes back again another day. It kinda looks like rug burn to me. Little red bumps, she says they itch and it must burn a little when I put on the cream . But like I said a day or two later it is gone. I have changed her laundry soap to no perfumes or dyes, no longer use bubble bath , use only baby wash on her. Since I have started doing those things it seems to help. But she does still get a rash sometimes. She does jump around a lot and rolls around a lot. Could it be from sweating? Not sure what to do . Doesnt seem to serious since it seems to respond to the diaper rash cream. But it does have me preplexed. Any ideas? Rash is only on butt cheeks, never has appeared anywhere else.
