I went to go change my little man's diaper, I noticed that he is very raw and red right underneath the tip of the penis. He had a really bad poopy diaper last night and it got all over his frontal's. I'm just wondering how I can treat him first, without having to take him to the doctor. Thank you for any advice that you may have :)

Thank you, I started putting Vaseline on it yesterday and it is starting to look better.

Possibly may be irritated from his BM...give him a bath maybe 2 x a day and make sure it stays clean and dry. Use a diaper cream or maybe even bacitracin on the area. Should clear quickly. Also could be irritated from the disposible diapers being used. Some diapers can be irritating and babies can hwve like an allergic reaction. Could also try a different brand if that could be a possibility.
