In brief: Yes and no
Baby wipes often contain chemicals that irritate the skin.
The poop always contains yeast, and these germs will take advantage of an opportunity to trigger a yeast rash in any area where the skin irritation created the conditions where they can thrive. So the wipes don't bring the yeast/rash, they just create the conditions where they can happen.
