Contact dermatitis: If it is not bothering him, do nothing and it will eventually clear up since the tegaderm is now off. If bothering him (itching, etc) , then use over-the-counter strength Hydrocortisone cream (like cortaid) and massage into affected area three times a day. Avoid irritants in area like scented soaps, etc. ...Read more

Fungus?: If you have belly flaps, this may be from a yeast infection which usually affects moist area of the body. If this is the case, try to keep the area dry. Use a anti-fungal cream if necessary. Without more details, any answer is a wild guess at best. ...Read more
