Hi Jerde, redness in the perianal area is commonly seen after loosemotins. To avoid it wipe the area gently and keep it dry. Avoid continuous use of diapers. use vaseline or petroleum jelly locally. If there is no improvement an antifungal ointment like Candid B can be used twice aday till required.

There must be infection or inflammation due to the stools especially if it was loose stools. See that your child is well hydrated. You must be aware of diaper rash due to allergy can also present this way. It would be best to show her to the Paediatrician to treat any infection and prevent complications as soon as possible.
