Often times, if you are using cloth diapers, the urine will sit on baby's skin too long, and start to burn it. You'll want to be sure you are changing your baby's diaper very often, and as soon as you notice it is wet or dirty.
Also, you may want to put a diaper cream on his bottom each time you change his diaper. A nappy cream with calendula or zinc can be very helpful.
You'll also find some helpful information on the Nappy Rash thread.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.

As Kate says it is best to change your baby's diaper frequently (whenever it is wet or dirty) and to use a barrier cream if they are suffering from nappy rash. The barrier cream helps to prevent moisture affecting the babies skin.
It is safe to use diapers 24/7 but you may find that giving your baby some diaper-free time each day (e.g. when he is playing on a towel) helps to prevent further nappy rash.
