Hi everyone, my girl is almost 6 years old and needs more help then my others keeping her back side clean. I use hypoallergenic cat wipes to clean her bottom and within the last week I’ve noticed what seems to be a rash. Could this be from her skin getting irritated with the wipes or cleaning it TOO much? Picture below, thank you in advance!!

I had issues early on with my boy and it turned out I was scrubbing too hard. His little bottom looked just like that. So now what I do is warm the cloth up and then hold it too him for a couple of minutes to soften the stuff up back there. Sometimes, if it’s stickier than usual I will put a drop of cat soap on it as well to help break the stuff down. I just make sure and go over it again gently with a rinse rag.
