Don't try to sterilize the area, you can end up inviting yeast instead.

It's just a cut, at this point.
It can go on the skin or be ingested - I'm not saying it will kill the rash/outbreak the baby has right now, but I do believe it could prevent it from coming back. It isn't known to kill beneficial bacteria, either.
