  • Sounds like a slight diaper rash or reaction to urine or feces. Try using a powder or diaper cream every now and then to keep the moisture away from the skin. Good luck.

  • I agree with the above response. Probably diaper rash. Use ointment and powder. If it doesn't go away or gets worse, have her doctor take a look.

  • My 3 year old has the same problem. We use hydrocortizone cream and it seems to help get rid of the irritation, but the bumps come back if you discontinue use.

  • When my daughter had something like this her doctor said that it was a type of yeast infection. She had me put cream on her butt that people use for athlete's foot. It worked well and was gone by the second application. However, if I were you, I would ask her doctor to be sure. Call the office and talk to the nurse. They usually have one at my daughter's doctor's office that takes calls like that.

  • sounds like diaper rash with a yeast infection... red with little red bumps...
    see a dr, they can give you the proper cream, since diaper cream will not clear it up and it will come back again and again and again.
