Nappy rash and candidiasis in female infant. Female infant showing a patchy red rash and white flakes of Candida on the genital area. Nappy rash is produced by skin irritation from substances contained in the faeces and urine. Bacteria and the fungus Candida Albicans (also known as thrush) often infect the moist areas of skin and may produce blistering. Prevention is better than cure. The aim is to keep the baby's skin dry for as long as possible. Frequent nappy changes and water repellent creams are recommended. Infection is treated with antifungal and corticosteroid creams.
