Any idea what this rash is?
 
DD is 11 days old. I'm using prefolds and covers on her. She is breast-fed.

(ETA): She is also a little jaundiced--but not bad; bili level was 13 today and ped said we could stop checking.

When I changed her this afternoon, I noticed her butt crack looked kind of yellow--as if maybe I hadn't cleaned her well enough after her last poop???

But, as I gently tried to wipe it off, I realized that it wasn't dirty...it's some kind of rash. :(

It's
yellowish
raised
by her anus
it doesn;t seem painful; she fusses a little when wet or poopy but not like she's in pain

Any idea what it is? The only thing I could find was that maybe it was a form of cradle cap in the diaper area, (and my other two kids had BAD cradle cap) but I'm not sure what I would even put on it.

Any ideas?

The rash blistered overnight and some skin is raw...I'm taking her to the ped this afternoon.

:(

Strange...neither of my other kids ever had a rash look like this. Just wish I knew what it was.

I was going to say yeast as well. If it is yeast, make sure you bleach or otherwise sanitize your dipes! I did not think to do this with DD, and we battled yeast for a few weeks before I was able to sanitize everything and get it cleared.

Yeast is always possible; I had a c-section and a ton of antibiotics (like twice the normal amount). Not sure if it would take this long to manifest though??? She is 12 days old today.

My other two kids have eczema, it doesn't look like anything they have had. Too blistery. :(
