Possible abuse of my 5 month old.

Incredibly nervous... Yesterday I went to work and left my 5 month old daughter with my dad for about a half hour, who I trust fully as he raised three girls with the constant watch of my wonderful mother. When I got home she had a red patch of skin by the front of her genitals and the inside of her was redder than it should have been, I think. Also the rash looked odd to me the minute I saw it. I even took her to the hospital just to make sure. I told them that I was worried about the diaper rash as it looked a little different than usual. The doctor looked at it and gave me cream for diaper rash and sent me on my way. They didnt even look inside at all but the doctor seemed quite nonchalant about it. I do not want to implicate anybody and I would have never thought that he would do something like that but you never know. I dont know, cant really talk to anybody about this, maybe someone else has a similar situation and can help me figure this out. Confused, and scared.

Did you ever take your baby to her pediatrician? Their are a number of test they can do;for example they can do a culture and swab the babies genitals to check for certain bacteria. Has there been any more problems since then?
