Sensitive Diaper Area Skin

Hi! I have dealt with diaper rashes with all my kids, but now this is one I haven't had before.

Since May my son has had some irritation in his diaper/pull-up area. We have been airing it out...using big boy pants...using A&D ointment, cornstarch, you name it. It got worse and worse.
