Hi and welcome to HCM.
If there is pus formation it should be surgically managed by incision and drainage. If tehre is only redness then it can heal spontaneously or by antibiotics. This time try to find cause of this. there can be allergic reaction to diapers or some baby cream. Ask your pediatrican for atiseptic lotions or powder. Wish you good health.
