diaper rash help needed.

my almost 4 week old has diaper rash, just around his anus where the poo is in contact with the skin. All the other diaper area is clear. Its like a burn and its so red and starting to break down. He has had it for 2 weeks. It got better after a week of using triple paste (I had also tried a bunch of other more natural things). Then it was only better for two days and yesterday came back as a terrible burn. Obviously what I am eating is bothering him (EBF). What do I need to cut out of my diet since I have no idea.
Also the triple paste doesn't stay on very good. I am using a disposable liner with the diapers. We use cotton fitteds and wool. I am doing baking soda baths and air time. What else can I do?
