The perianal rash may be due to frequent passage of stools and frequent cleaning with soap. So clean with plain lukewarm water and gently touch that area with a soft clean cloth to make it dry and after getting dried you can apply zinc oxide containing creams thrice daily and if the pain is severe you can apply xylocaine containing creams. What is the cause of rash should be looked into? So consult your Pediatrician.
