In the Brooder

Hi, I am a first time Duck owner so I'm still learning! I have a few questions..
I noticed a few days ago some of my Ducklings have red skin or a rash on their backs and a bit on their wings which I only notice more when they are wet,one is worse than the others. I'm not sure if their bath water is to warm, I first thought maybe it was the lamp so i moved it and it seemed to be better but i saw it again this afternoon durning bathtime. I use natural soft wood shavings and pee pads. I clean it everyday and just rinse with the water hose, also I can't seem to keep it dry! Pictures so u can see.. FYI this us after their "bath" so they are still a bit wet. What can the plm be? I feel so bad and really want to help her feel better!
Also how do I get them to bond more and be comfortable with me? They are a week old and I have had them since they where a few hours old, at the begining they would sit in my hand, now they hate when I pick them up they cry and wiggle. They are OK with me being near by but when I reach in to pet them or anything they run. I would really love for them to trust me more!
