I suppose you could get an infection anywhere. Have you tried calendula cream?

To be honest ive never heard of calendula cream,what does it do?

It's really great. I got some for ds for diaper rash but we use it on all types of skin irritation. Weleda is the brand I buy and I'm pretty sure it's available in the UK.

yes, mine have had this. As soon as I notice it, I take special care to keep it v clean and dry, and it's always gone away again.
