Dan Brennan, MD responded:
That sounds so uncomfortable :( There could be several reasons including an infection, contact irritation from soap or lotion and as the previous posted alluded to - a hair tourniquet.

I'd recommend giving your doc a call and letting him/her take a look.

Hope that helps,

Dr. Dan

well it was very uncomfortable for him even to touch it, but it did going away the next day. So it's weird how it just appeared out of no where, i never changed his soap or his lotions either, i also use the same brand of diapers too. but we are going to see the doc anyways but thank you for your response.
