Hi
Thanks for writing to health care magic.
The possibilities include diaper rash , Candida infection, allergic dermatitis.
If there is fluid inside then it's more of allergy or viral.
You can try local sootheners like calamine and aloe vera ointment.
Keeping the area dry would help.

Wishing your kid great health
