Child having bumpy red rash on buttock which spread down to ankle. Treated with hydrocortisone, zinc Johnsons baby cream. Diagnosis?

My 2 year old little girl has had a bumpy red rash on the crease of her bottom for the last week or so. I have been putting hydrocortisone cream and zinc johnsons baby cream on it and had it almost cleared up. Tonight I noticed that it has spread to the other side and down the back of her leg almost to her ankle...and she says ouch when I put cream on it. She s never had a rash like this before what could this be??? Thanks

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.
It appears to be an allergic reaction to the cloths wearing or new foods eating in recent times, or to soap or powder used for her in recent days.
Other possibility could be a fungal infection. What ever the reason is there is a possibility of secondary bacterial infection over the existing lesion.
I advise you to consult a dermatologist, for diagnosis and treatment.
