Confused About Diaper Rash Could It Be From Teething

I think I have seen every diaper rash under the sun. I have seen diaper rash from an allergy, a yeast rash, a p___kly heat rash... every rash but this. My dd is teething, she just had one tooth pop through the other day, and the one beside it will be through any day now. She has a weird rash... it isnt on her labia, it isnt on her buttocks or near her r___m, but its on the outer part of her bum, almost on her leg. Half of the rash is covered by the diaper, and the other half is outside the diaper (which makes me think it isnt being caused by the diaper at all). Its a red rash, it isnt p___kly, it doesnt look blistery, and it isnt flakey like a yeast rash. It almost looks like a very minor burn. Red patches on the skin. In your experience, does this sound like a teething rash? Why do babies get rashes when they teeth?

My baby gets those when she gets teeth also - I use desitin overnight cream and it helps alot!! If you are worried though take her to the pedi to get it checked, better safe then sorry.
