Kids Home > Yeast Diaper Rash
There are several different types of diaper rash. Yeast diaper rash occurs when the rash becomes infected. The overgrowth of yeast is a fairly common result of a simple diaper rash that has gotten worse due to lack of treatment. Going from a simple rash to a diaper rash with a yeast infection can happen within a few days.
