Its beyond nappy rash and powder.
She usually wears a cloth nappy and sometimes uses a toilet if not tells me as soon as she done wees or poos and we change her immediately.

I see

have you tried 1% hydrocortisone cream on her skin? this often can help reactive skin and eczema and hives and red inflammation like this.

tried it. Its not just an eczema it beyond that.
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

then you need to see a doctor

and get a skin culture of the area to see if it is a bacterial infection which would need prescription antibiotic ointment

or an antifungal ointment

she may need stronger prescription steroid creams.

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.
