My little girl had a similar thing, but also was irritated by the rubbing on her cothes. It ended up like a wet graze and looked really sore. I have been using sudocream (which is like a nappy rash cream that just acts as a barrier so no bacteria or moisture irritates it more.) It is helping heaps, give it a go. Good luck!

my 7 week old has had the exact same thing, it looked really sore but Sudocrem cleared it up within 24 hours, you can get it from any supermarket and its really cheap!

i used aquaphor for babies. there is really nothing you can do other then wiping the sore with warm water to keep it clean, dry it gently and put something on it. If it is really bad i'd ask my ped what to do.

Cornstarch or you can use a little bit of diaper rash oitment in there. that's what i've found works best.

fish oil/salmon oil helped for my daugther, its is safe and available from any herbal pharmacy. 1 teaspoon once or twice a day and she seemed to think it was delicious. It's also great for brain development. But speak to a pharmacist if in doubt.
