In brief: Dryness, chamomile
Most diaper rashes are due to skin macerations and brakedown due to excessive moist.
Allow the skin to get dry before placing the diaper. Using cold compresses with chamomille four times a day for 20-30 min could help. Visit your pediatrician to get better advice and to get recommendation about the use of creams and/or lotions that could help to protect and heal the skin.

In brief: Gentle skin care
Clean your child's diaper area with plain, warm water. Use a squirt bottle, wet cotton balls, or a moist, soft cloth to clean your child's diaper area.
Allow the skin to air dry, or gently pat it dry with a clean cloth. Do not use baby wipes during diaper changes. Before closing the new diaper, make sure your child's bottom is completely dry. It is ok to use a drying ointment like zinc oxide.
