It would be hard to tell you what to put on it until a doctor says what it is.  Show the rash to his pediatrician.

sounds like heat rash.. but i would still ask your pediatrician to take a look if things dont start to clear up...


if heat rash is the culprit.. based on the severity.. he may reccomend..

1% hydrocortisone cream to relieve itching. Don't use any type of oil-based product, which might block your sweat glands.

in the mean time..

keeping the area cool and dry is a must.. being a 10 month old..it is hard.. but possible....!!
