1. Stop using pampers; if not possible change it more frequently.
2. Stop using soap, detergent until inflammation subsides.
3. Topical anti fungal with steroid namely-  Fungidal HC(Miconazole +Hydrocortisone) twice/thrice daily for 7 to 10 days is enough
4. Q-Rash(Zinc Oxide Paste) can be used side by side with Fungidal HC.
