poor little guy.. it could be a number of things? the witch hazel will dry it out.. Maybe put a little desitin on it to help it heal? it could be yeast build up, alergies or he may have just scratched because it was dry ?? just keep your eye on it..
we only use baby wipes ( non scented with aloe) to clean and then dry with a soft tissue..
but I know others do use the witch hazel..
