Possible candida: some diaper rashes develop into a fungal infection called candida if this is the case then it needs a prescription cream contact your doctor

How old?: First, rashes are very difficult to diagnose without seeing. How old is your son?If he's still in diapers then the most common type of rash would be a "heat rash"; the next most common would be a yeast infection.For a slightly older child, those rashes still occur but one also has to consider exposures - insect bites (chiggers, mites etc). For the most common rashes, clean and DRY the area.

Diaper rash: may be normal diaper rash due to longer than usual exposure to urine and stool. Simple over the counter diaper rash cream with Zinc Oxide may help. If not better please see your pediatrician

Diaper rashes, yeast: Children are prone to yeast infections in the diaper region as a result of illness, recent antibiotic use, frequent diarrhea or chronic moisture under the diaper or underwear. Its usually appears as red itchy bumps, occassionally with fissures, inflammation and tenderness. These rashes frequently resolve with topical antifungal creams, if treated until gone plus three more days.
