Try lotrimin (clotrimazole): Try lotrimin (clotrimazole) first for a few days to treat yeast infection. If not better try an triple antibiotic ointment (or both actually). Sometimes the rash is a mix of bacteria and yeast. A little cortisone cream can help with the inflammation. Baby powder will help absorb sweat and drool. The yeast thrives on moisture.

Irritation: This sounds like an irritant contact dermatitis. It is likely from the irritation caused by sweat. Do your best to keep the area dry and it will probably improve. If not then you should have your pediatrician have a look.
