Thank you for your query.

The rash is unlikely to be a reaction to the medicine as the reaction would present earlier than 8 days after the course has been started. As you have applied virtually every sort of a cream it is very difficult to suggest a ready solution to the rash. I suggest that you stop all ointments for a day or two and then apply only nystatin cream.

I hope I have answered to your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.

Thanks for your query.
As you said your child was having rash on 8th day,it is unlikely to be drug reaction which usually starts immediately.
I suggest you not to do any self medication,these rashes need to be examined by a that proper treatment is given,
In the meantime apply only calamine lotion.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
