Dermatologist 's  Response
It could be intertrigo that is occurring due to friction, dampness due to sweat collection or urine ultimately leading to itchy red macerated lesions. To prevent the same, change diapers often. Dust the area with antifungal powder. To treat the present lesions, apply a mild steroid antifungal cream. Once the lesions disappear, continue with preventive measures.
Take care.
