Fr diaper rash, continue the ointments,zinc supplement,and expose to air for an hour or so every 3-4 hrs- to keep the site dry. Frequent change of nappies is very essential.
For a breast fed baby passing 5-6 stools per day is normal. This may happen every time he is fed !This is also a normal reflex! Do not worry.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Most effective way to manage diaper rash is avoid diaper as much as possible.
Air out the skin.keep it dry and clean.diapers should be changed frequently.
Continue with medication as advised.
Regarding passing motions more frequently,it is common in breast fed babie to pass 10 to 12 motion a day due to increase gastrocolic reflex.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
