I think you nailed it. From over wiping. Do you baby wipes?

I used them that first time and I got this. They were pampers wipes

Ok. If you stop using them and apply zinc oxide (desitin), it will resolve

just give it time

It will heal

that is all you should put on it though and try not to wipe too much or use a washcloth with warm water

is this helpful?

What exactly is this rash? I don't have desiring on hand. Can I continue to put A&D. What caused this. Why does it itch and burn

It is a reaction to the wipes.

allergic reaction.

You still have not answered if I can put A&D lol. Can it be from toilet paper also?

Yes, I'm sorry. A and D is good too. I prefer desitin but A and D will do.

The paper is just making the allergic irritation worse

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
