Your baby may have:
- A red rash
- Red and scaly skin in the area that a diaper covers --- around the genitals and buttocks -- and where the diaper touches the thighs
- More discomfort, especially at diaper-changing time
It may not affect the whole area that the diaper covers.
Severe diaper rash could be bleeding, with raw skin.

What Else It Might Be
