Inflamed perineum?

My 2 year old has a red inflamed perineum. At first we thought it was a scratch but now we are thinking that the line that connects the anus to the scrotum is just very inflamed. We took him to the doctor who barely looked at it and said he probably scratched it with a toy. Has anyone else ever heard of this?

When working in an infant daycare I have seen this with diaper rashes.

I'd just keep it really clean--lots of baths--and see how it goes.

I was wondering about putting some neosporin on it, but I don't have experience of this so can't advise.

Just keep the area clean pat dry then had some vaseline or diaper rash cream with a light layer of powder so it won't stick on the baby's diaper.
