its a indicator that child has developed frictional dermatitis or irritant contact dermatitis . due to acidic stool . n secondary lactose intolerance has set in now . if there are satellite lesions too then candidal involvement should b suspected too . avoid use of nappies . or change nappies very rapidly . either way . keep the area exposed . candid b ointment zinc orally lactaze enzyme drops .

Perianal and anal glands produce oily secretions, which keep anal and perianal skin soft and healthy Loose motions results in loss of this protective cover Coconut oil application 4 - 5 times a day and every time after motions are passed will result in restoration of healthy skin
