Skin issues

My 4 month old son has some sort of rise on his butt. It is the size of a dime or a penny, and it is red. It is close to his crack, and there isn't a lot of redness around it, nor does it look like a diaper rash. I've looked at images of skin conditions on google, and I haven't seen anything quite like it. So I have no idea what it is. He hasn't eaten anything new, or had any new lotions or soaps, or detergents. The only thing remotely different are his new size three diapers, Pampers, but we have used this brand before with no issues. Does anybody have a clue what this could be?

the diapers you bought. did they have something special on the package? like fragrance, stops leakage, controls odors.diffterent things like that, you might want to check it. Also it could be that their just getting a risen or something. its natural nothing triggers it. old people say it means infection in the body. who knows!!!

Has he had contact with pets? Could be a ringworm. Have you tried bathing him without any soap or other products?
