My son has an area in between the size of a quarter and nickel that's red, and almost bleeding. It seems to FINALLY be getting better. We haven't used wipes in a few days, only water or baths to clean him off, we're changing him every couple of hours and also letting him have some naked time. We've started putting only zinc oxide on it instead of butt paste and baby powder. It seems like it's getting better and less irritated but it's hard when he's been having weird poopy diapers. The one today was actually the most normal one in a few days. Should I take him to the doctor? He hardly ever get rashes and when he does, they're gone in a few hours to a day later.Answer Question

That IS NOT a diaper rash. It's a yeast infection. If it was bleeding and peeling, mos def a fungal infection. MY oldest had them enough to know! :) Save yourself the Dr. Appointment. Go to Wal Mart pharmacy and buy Tolifolinate antifungal cream for about $3.50! It will go away completely in about 2 days. It's totally safe. I had a big thing of it because my oldest had issues with diarrhea, which can cause fungal infections.
