Brief Answer: Relax Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for writing to us. I understand your concern. Relax there is nothing to worry as I can see from picture it is a mild rash. I suggest you to do following things: -frequent change of diapers should be done and best would be avoiding it. -yes you can use it during night time. -use water and soft cloth to clean and avoid disposable wipes. -open air exposure is helpful. -apply siloderm or vaseline every time after passing urine or stools -make your baby sit in tub of warm water for 5to10 minutes 2 times a day. In case rash increases fungal infection needs to be ruled out for which topical antifungal will be needed.. Hope I have answered your query,let me know if you have further question I would be glad to help. Wishing your baby good health. God bless..
