Moving this to Life with a Babe where you might get better feedback. :)

My babe had this repeatedly.  We would wash/dry and then use a zinc oxide diaper cream on the area as a moisture barrier. Burt's Bees worked for us, but California Baby burned when the skin was a little raw.  That worked ok.  Then I got some of the silicone anti-chafing gel (monistat makes one, bodyglide is another) and that worked even better.
