Intertrigo: The peri-rectal area is a common area for a rash known as intertrigo. This starts off as an irritation and then secondarily becomes colonized by yeast usually.

Zeasorb powder is useful to prevent recurrence. See a dermatologist.

I been using aquaphor on my eczema for 2 days. Wonder how long does it take to go away?

Could take a while.: Give it some time. Eczema isn't dangerous, but it can be rather stubborn. If Aquaphor doesn't help within two weeks, you might want to consult your doctor for a topical steroid by prescription.

Will eczema go away without treatment?

Yes: Most infants and tots will grow out of their eczema. But not all will. And it might take a few years. So you should treat in in the meantime. Start with topicals like vaseline, aquaphor or eucerin. Try diaper ointments. My rule of thumb is that it should come from a tub/jar, not a pump bottle. Then if that isn't enough, then talk to your doctor for a prescription. Keep them from scratching!

One thing seems clear-nearly all ad patients have dry skin, the result of a defective skin layer causing water loss. Moisturizer immediately after bathing is a must.
