My 7 month old has a strange diaper rash. He has these little dots that almost look like pimples all over his scrotum and underneath his penis. The tip of his foreskin is red. He also has a couple of these bumps on his inner thighs. They are not crusty or pus-filled, just red. What could this be? It's been going on for a few days. I've been using diaper cream, and it hasn't helped. I haven't changed diapers, wipes, detergent, or anything like that. I did introduce a new food, but it started before I did that. It doesn't seem to hurt him.
Anyone have experience with something like this? I'd rather not take him to the doctor if I don't have to. It's expensive, plus I'm afraid that if I am taking him for something related to his penis, he will be retracted. (The doctor has not done this before, but I still worry.) If I have to take him, I will. I just wanted to ask here first.
