Best treatment: Is frequent diaper changes and use of barrier cream with zinc oxide... If that doesn't help, you may be dealing with a yeast infection and may need an antifungal cream as well.

Prevention: Keep bottom clean & dry. Change dirty diapers right away & rinse with warm water with each change. Avoid use of substances that contain alcohol or fragrances. Pat bottom dry or air dry. Ensure the diapers aren't too tight. Avoid talcum powder or cornstarch. Allow diaper free periods.
