Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

My grand son was getting in the bath and I saw that his butt looked red so I told him to bend over and his butt-hole area is a bright red. We are just wondering should we take him to a doctor?

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.
