Is it a diaper rash or something more?

I have a 2 year old, and I noticed that his penis was very red when changing his diaper. Didn't think much of it & put diaper rash cream on it. Now it has been 2 days later and the foreskin is swollen & red, dry & a little cracked. I keep diaper cream on it, but now I am wondering if this is something more. No fever, though. what do you think?

I would say that after 2 days of putting the cream on it, and no relief from it, i would think it is something a little more. Maybe just put a call into his pedi and see what they think. Does it seem like he is in pain from it?

Perhaps a yeast infection that requires a prescrip.  Not fun -- I'd take him to the doc just to be sure.

I agree, I think it is a yeast infection.People think only girls get it, but that is not the case.
