Is her bum raw like diaper rash? If it's not infected, try using a small amount of Vaseline. Vaseline will create a barrier to keep the feces away from her skin and from sticking. I've found it works the best of anything I've tried. Try a tiny spot just to make sure she doesn't find it interesting and chews at it. The majority I've used it on have been fine, one girl decided it had to come off.

How old is she?
