Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Generally little girls get allergic rash from the diapers. If cloth diapers made at home are used, then it can be allergy to the cloth or detergent being used. It can also be allergy to cotton swabs and other such things being used to clean the area. Other than that it can be a frictional rash by caused while cleaning the area as a baby’s skin is very sensitive.

Please discuss this with her pediatrician. Hope this helps. Take care!
