Have you always used this routine? If not then she might have an allergy or sensitivity to one of those.
Have you stripped your diapers? Might be build up? When I was trying to figure out what is was I used borax and then stripped. It was a pain but no more rash after a good stripping.
I know the rash is only in one area but if she's walking or crawling (like my daughter was) its rubbing against that area with all that build up causing a sensitivity.
I would suggest bac-out but some babes have a sensitivity to that. I use it every so often to get a good deep clean. It's a great enzyme that breaks down waste.

I just realized that it happens with new covers too so it's not the bacteria/buildup issue. Though I've been using bleach for maybe a month now and I started cd'ing about 5 months ago. It prob is a sensitivity, I just haven't narrowed it down to what exactly bc it happens at random times with random diapers. She's got very sensitive skin everywhere though.

Re: Rash help!

Some kids have a sensitivity to elastic. I would try flats or prefolds with a wool cover.
