Diaper dermatitis is a chemical dermatitis caused by stools. Stools are acidic in nature hence make the skin raw. Best way to treat it is to avoid diapers till the wound heals. Don't wipe the bottom . Gently rinse the bottom with lukewarm water & dab it dry. Apply any of the nappy rash cream and cotrimoxazole powder. If still doesn't subside wud recommend to meet a dermatologist. Regards.
