    Suggest remedy for red, bumpy rash on anus of a toddler

My 3 1/2 old son has a very bad rash on his butthole. Its very red and bumpy. It is now so dry that its starting to split right at the very top before the butthole. I'm thinking this might have to do with him pooping, not telling anyone. But it just looks so painful! Help!

Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
It may be napkin rash or it may due to frequent loose motions.
Applying some emollient cream will help reducing rash.
Stop nappy till the lesion clears.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
