In brief: Perianal sores

Actually powder can clump from moisture & cause more irritation, use Destin cream, or A & D oint, let the area breath every now & then but it is best if you take your baby to your pediatrician, a priscrption for antifungal cream or antibiotic ointment might be needed Good luck.
