Default Diaper rash is candida associated dermatitis!

I"m not sure what you want to differentiating from this!

Dermatitis - diaper and Candida; Candida-associated diaper dermatitis; Diaper dermatitis



A diaper rash is a skin problem that develops in the area beneath an infant's diaper.



Diaper rashes are common in babies between 4 and 15 months old. They may be noticed more when babies begin to eat solid foods.
Diaper rashes caused by infection with a yeast or fungus called Candida are very common in children. Candida is found everywhere in the environment. It grows best in warm, moist places, such as under a diaper.

the difference is that Candida dermatitis doesnt affect the folds and there are satellite lesions seen.
