large red spots around private area...

my son keeps getting large red spots around his private area. Their not raised, or spotty, just all red, and about the size of a quarter. Two or three come at a time, and they change positions. I havent switched his bath soap, or anything he uses. It just started doing it about three days ago. What could it be?

  • Well.... if there not raised or bumpy...not peeling or anything. I would just put a lil diaper cream on it, wash it gently every time he's changed and it should go away. If you don't see a change in a few days or it gets worse or spreads, then I would take him to the Dr. Other wise give it a few with a lil care and see what happens... Kids have sensitive skin....it may just suddenly go away on its own.... Don't worry.... and good luck.

  • I suggest a visit to the pediatrician. Hopefully is nothing serious but I wouldn't take any chances, I would want to have it check out by the pediatrician.
