Suggest treatment for fever in an infant

My 10 month old has had a low grade fever for the past 3 days, and has been suffering from diaper rash this past week due to teething and diahrea. I just changed her diaper and she became very upset when I wiped her, I also notice a pink hue on her wipe. What should I do?

diaper rash is a troublesome problem to mom and baby and to keep clean the diaper area is something very important. Try changing diapers quiet often not to get soaked that area with urine and applying moisturizer soothing cream and if gets worsened, try avoiding diapers for some days to keep open for the wound to get healed fast.
