    If skin not broken, something like A&D. If you have to sit on it, try Mepilex border. Take probiotics for the the runs.

    I have been using Verericyn AH HydroGel for a number of years on anything skin related, and it really speeds up healing.

    I would clean and try Triple Antibiotic ointment. You definitely need to clean and protect it from further exposure to stool. Do not put pressure or shear on it.
    Mepitel or Mepilex with border are bothgood. A hydrocolloid (Duoderm) would also be good - with border to make water tight.
