Hello,
To treat diaper rash,pls try to avoid vigorous rubbing of sore areas.Also use a squirt bottle and then pat dry the area.Also let your child’s bottom air dry for a few minutes and then apply any over the counter diaper creams or barrier creams containing zinc oxide.Also discontinue disposable diapers and shift to cloth diapers for some time.However take precaution to change the wet diapers and also wash the diapers in unscented laundry detergent.If the symptoms persist then mild steroid creams or antibiotic creams may be required which are available by prescription.If the symptoms still persist then pls get your baby evaluated for eczema.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how your baby is doing or if you have any additional dobts.Kind regards.
