My son has a red ring around the head of his penis. I noticed it at bath time. I bought a brand of diapers I haven't used in a while but I don't know?

In brief: Probably normal

A darkened purple/red ring at the far edge of the glans (spear tip) is normal.
You likely never noticed it before.If you think it's a change bring it up at your next office visit. I can't see that diapers had anything to do with it.
