Diaper Rash and Thrush

While one typically thinks of infant thrush as being a condition of the mouth and tongue, it can in fact present itself as a red, scaly, inflamed diaper rash that causes great discomfort for the child. Recognizing the white spots of oral thrush in the mouth and the accompanying diaper rash are two signs pointing to candida albicans overgrowth in the system and should be seen by a medical professional.

The fungus known as candida albicans is actually a healthy bacteria that serves a purpose in the flora of the intestines and mucous membranes. However, if the immune system is weakened it can overgrow, causing problems ranging from yeast infections to dandruff to diaper rashes.

Newborn babies have under-developed immune systems that make them more susceptible to this fungus overgrowth. If your baby has the symptoms of oral thrush, such as curd-like spots in the mouth, and a diaper rash, it is likely thrush is the reason for the skin problem.

The following are common symptoms of a thrush-related diaper rash:

•  A red rash with scales and lacerations.

•  A rash that is found in the crevices of the groin and buttocks, where fungus and yeast are most likely to grow.

•  Small red spots surrounding the larger patches of red rash.

•  A clearly defined border of the rash.

It is always wise to seek medical attention if you believe your child is suffering from thrush. A doctor will likely prescribe a cream or ointment to heal the condition.
