Hi dear,
Its going to be really difficult handling a child with anorectal malformation. They pass stools frequently & wet anal area are prone to have rashes often. Try zinc oxide containing emollients. It will heal the rash quickly. Keep the anal area dry but at the same time don't wipe the area harshly as tender skin gets damaged by frequent rubbing. Keep changing diapers frequently.
Take care
