My grandbaby gets a yeast diaper rash pretty often. Athletes foot or yeast medicine (works the same but athletes is much cheaper) works great. It's not a barrier like diaper rash cream, it just needs a light coating at every diaper change, enough to rub in, but not enough to leave a visible film. It doesn't matter if she touches it and/or rubs it, it just needs to be re applied at the next change. If you don't see a HUGE improvement in a couple of days take her back in because it's not yeast if it's not much better.
