Rash on the bottom? What can it be?

I noticed 2 days ago my 4 year old DD has a pinple like thing on her butt. It didnt go away next day and noticed more. Today its all over. I really havent changed soaps, and butt is the only place where I see this. It looks likes like small zits. What do you think it can be?

  • It sounds like heat rash. Give her a good soaking bath and let her run in her underwear that way it'll air out... my son gets heat rash alot.. it's bad for happening in the armpits too.

  • I agree, sounds like a heat rash. Air it out!

  • I agree, sounds like heat rash or prickly heat. No diaper is the best cure. Also when she has one on use corn starch baby powder on her tush.

  • Could be heat rash. Has she been in any swimming areas? Maybe swimmer's itch. Use witch hazel to sooth the rash & shea butter to heal it.
