In brief: Could be
From excess caffeine, excess perspiration or even a yeast infection.
Try liberal frequent use of corn starch powder to bottom, eliminate caffeine, do notuse baby wipes as they have lanolin which will make the rash worse. Use kleenex cottonelle wipes or any wipe that has no lanolin, witch hazel or alcohol in them.
