Dear Mamas, please help! DD is 5.5 months old and is EBF since birth. Her neck is reddish almost like it's bleeding or about to and has some whitish stuff which initially i thought was milk (we co sleep and do side lying position a lot) residue from her dreamfeeds. I tried to wipe it with a damp cotton ball. Couldnt really do much cleaning as she starts to cry/fuss when I even just slightly touch that area... Today, we tried to put baby powder but it just turned the powder into a chalk like texture and most of her neck still wet. DD is 8kgs last time we checked so she is a bit on the chubby side so that part of her neck doesnt see the light of day.
Is this normal or is this a yeast infection? I was thinking of applying nappy rash cream or should I use other ointments? Vaseline maybe or should I just continue with the powder? We bathe her daily in the morning or afternoon but by evening time her neck is really red... how can I know if it's a yeast infection?
