In brief: Lose the pacifier!

You can try using a moisturizer, such as eucerin.
Alternatively, because this is an irritation from saliva under the pacifier, you can even try some 1/2-1% Hydrocortisone cream twice a day for a couple of days. Getting rid of the pacifier is the only way to really cure the rash.
