As its itching.. please consult your paediatric expert. Cut baby's nails..so that skin won't breakout and won't lead to secondary infection.

Gitali, seems like diaper rash. As i can see redness in the area where she wear diaper. Try to change diaper often and give your baby some diaper free time. Also, avoid wearing diapers as soon as you wet her with wipes. Let the place get dry and then apply rash cream. Let it also get absorbed then wear your baby diaper. If your baby is more uncomfortable, take her to pediatrician.
