1 month 5 days baby having rash on anal area. Is coconut oil helpful in this ?

hello, I am from orissa. my baby is one month and 5 days. he has at least 8 to 10 times urination and motion in day time. since 2 or 3 days I am seening redness in his anal region. at night he cries and keep his waist and legs up. I think due cleaning of the anal region after motion, with the ready made wipers (available in market now a days) may have caused this redness. i think it is burning so he is crying. what shall i do to clean the area without any pain and harm to my baby. and right now what medicine or ointment or cream i shall apply on the affected area. I am applying now only coconut oil in that area, and i think he feels relaxed, because he calm down after applying oil there. plz guide me.
