My son will be 4 wks on Sunday and he has red blisters completely around his anus. What is it and treatment? Is it normal or should I see his pediatrician? Thanks for your help!!

Thank you ladies much..it is all but gone! Guess it was just a plain old diaper rash..just looked different than any diaper rash I had ever seen, which was not many. I really appreciate your advice..:))

Yes definitely get him into the doctor to make sure it isn't anything severe!! I've never seen a rash that is just in that spot and has blisters but nothing else. But that certainly doesn't mean that's not all it is!! All children are different after all!! I agree that you should put something on it whether that be vaseline or some sort of diaper rash cream depending on what you have on hand; you want him to be as comfortable as possible!! If it is just a diaper rash and it keeps coming back, than definitely change diaper brands!!

could be plan old diaper rash or he could not like the diaper brand your using I'd put some Vaseline on it to protect it from dampness and let his bum have some air and yes call the doctor you should call any time you little one has something health related that your not sure about. I've got three kids and still have to call from time to time! but wait until morning and see if a little Vaseline will help I use cloth with my littlest one as all disposables gave him blisters and I use Lanolin (breast cream) on his bum with every diaper change/
