more than likely a yeast infection--go to your local pharmacy and get some Lotrimin AF (the same stuff they use on athlete's foot) and that should clear it up and yes it is pediatrician recommended (at least by mine).  In the future to prevent it, put vaseline on his nether region and booty area and it creates as waterproof (or in this case urine and poop) barrier to protect his skin.

A sitzy bath in warm water and baking soda may also help if it is truly just a diaper rash.  The Lotrimin should clear it up within a few days if it is a yeast infection.  I am sure if you Google yeast infection images, it may confirm it for you.  Good luck!
