Reaction?: If any contact with bowl cleaner or other chemical, could be a local reaction (/"burn") from that, which may look infected on exam (hence abx/anti-fungal).

What are tha causes of fungal rash on my baby's diaper area? How would i know its a fungal rash compared to ordinary rashes
Red and itchy: Everyone has yeast that lives on the skin. But yeast particularly likes places that are damp and moist - like under a diaper. Keeping the skin cool and dry will help. You can also try an over-the-counter antifungal like Clotrimazole cream 3 times a day and see if that works. Yeast rashes are usually very red, itchy, and spread with "satellite" small red bumps away from the rash center. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Fungal rashes: One clue is that fungus likes to grow in warm, moist areas -like the groin, or between the toes (think sweaty socks). If it itches also, it could be fungus. Bacterial infections of the skin don't itch. There are other things that could be red and itchy -such as what's caused by contact allergy, inflammatory conditions like psoriasis, etc.Try drying the area if you think it's fungus, or show a doc. ...Read more
Would not recommend: If you have a fungal skin rash, it is best to use an anti-fungal cream. There are many otc options such as lotrimin, lamisil, tinactin, (tolnaftate) generic clotrimazole, etc. Avoid putting a steroid cream on a fungal rash as it may contribute to the rash progressing rather than resolving. When in doubt, contact your doctor to be sure of the best treatment. Sometimes oral medicine is necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
