Can you use Monistat for a diaper rash?


Answer by  JSmith0330 (616)

Monistat also know as Ticonazole is an anti fungal medication used to treat yeast infections and should be used as prescribed I would suggest that you contact your doctor and see if they can recommend something, as with any medication it could have a different effect. I hope this helps.

No! Monistat is for a yeast infection, diaper rash is for raw skin. The chemicals in each are very different and monistat can burn a diaper rash. The best thing to use for a rash is a zinc oxide cream. There are many different creams that contain this and the best ones have at least 10%.

Diaper rashes are actually yeast infections and you can use Monistat to help clear it up quick only put a little amount on. After doing that you can also apply some Desitin.

Seeing that Monistat is formulated for use in delicate areas. I don't believe that there isn't any reason to not use it for a diaper rash.

Candida is the fungal species most prevelent in yeast infections. To treat, this anti-fungal medication is used. Some OTC topical creams like Monistat can be used around the affected area.
