Back rash toddler

Common Questions and Answers about Back rash toddler


Avatar n tn Overnight my 2 year old son developed a rash on face, arms, back, belly, under arms, and groin areas. It looks very similar to eczema that I have seen on other children. He has not had a fever and it does not apprear to be itchy. He did have a mild cold with a cough and runny nose last week. He also had a little bite from the cat on his hand. I looked up cat scratch disease but it doesn't appear to match those symptoms.
Avatar n tn my 2 year old toddler gets this rash that appears in different areas of her body it itches. the area gets red then medium size welts llike rash appears. it last for about one hour goes away, then it appears in another area of her body. do you have any suggestions.
Avatar n tn Last week i noticed on the base of her neck a rash was starting so i just kept on with what the dermatologist said and the rash continued down her whole back to her bottom and the back of her knees as well as the inside of her elbows. I have also noticed on her scalp that it is starting to flake like dandruff. We have tried everything from the sensitive soaps to everything our dermatologist says and we are just kindof stuck.
Avatar n tn Have you ruled out heat rash??? I don't know how itchy it is but heat rash involves blocked sweat glands and it can definately form into a raised rash. Another possibility is discoid eczema. Unexplained dermatitis is a real thing as well. I have 'something' going on with one of my fingers. It will flair up into an itchy, very small raised rash, and then I scratch and the skin gets shiny and it peals. It does this a couple of times a year and is ONLY on my pinkie. ?????
Avatar f tn He took one look and knew it was a type of yeast infection - basically, it starts as slight diaper rash but develops into a larger rash that doesn't respond to typical treatment. She was prescribed econozole - however, many actually get relief from over-the-counter topical creams (apply to the skin where the rash is) for yeast infection. Perhaps your daughter's doctor, pharmacist, or nurse could advise you over the phone if it's worth trying.
566950 tn?1216662003 has anyone ever seen rash on toddler like this? Has happened 3 x this past year. Child with extensive medical history. It was confined to back, burned without itchiness, and resolved within 2-3 hours. No causative factors, such as soaps, etc. found. And no,...he was not burned or scalded by the H2O. Please help! This child has been having strange symptoms that the docs can't figure out since the day he was born.
Avatar n tn She has also said her hair hurts and fooled with the bottom of the back of her head (which of course is the top of her spine) She also has a rash called pityriasis right now. Obviously my imagination is running away with itself. Help feedback anyone....waiting stinks!
Avatar n tn hi I am so worried,I have genital herpes I know this because I get breakout in my left buttock but last february I accidentally picked up my 18 month old boy against my hip I had a break out in the left buttock and a little pimple around the hip, he wasn't wearing a diaper because it was bath time and I'm concerned because that same week he got a lump with in his left testicle it was swollen and red with little areas of open skin which went away with a foot athlete's cream that his pediatrician
Avatar n tn My daughter is 21 months, and has had a rash on her stomach, chest, and right side stretching to part her back. The rash isn't a covering rash. It's more like patches of rash in all of those areas. It is almost unseen by the naked eye. You have to actually run your hand over the area and look under a light to see the difference. She was sick about a week ago with a slight ear infection, runny nose, vomiting, fever of 102 or more, and inflamed eyes.
Avatar n tn i have been using the aquaphor every few hours to keep his rash from drying out. he also licks or wippes it with the back of his hand or his shirt. and also it always seems worse when i pick him up from school at 2:30. it looks more inflamed then the morning. i wonder if they have a name for this rash. will you please let me know you are doing that is helping you to get rid of it. will it ever go away now that is here?
Avatar n tn Have you taken him back to the doctor about this rash. You may need to get a prescription cream for it. The spray my have alcohol in it and it burns when applied. How old is he? The doctor may give you a prescription and suggest you use cloth diapers until it is cleared up.
676912 tn?1332816151 D it's never really worked IMO. I don't know if I want to try baby powder, it's not a rash like a wet rash, if you know what I already looks dry.
Avatar f tn He gets about 10 spots a day, those fade and then he gets new ones. The spots are mainly on his underarm, back, and shoulders. But now a few of them have showed up inside his mouth (cheek) and on his face. Sometimes they are clustered together and sometimes it is just a spot here and there. He had 2 rounds of bloodwork that came back normal. He did have a virus about 2 weeks ago (no fever, just a viral respitory infection). They also checked him for strep too that was negative.
Avatar n tn No fever, normal appetite, normal behavior (except for the diaper rash that the foul diarrhea gives). As soon as the BM hits their skin, it immediately burns and leaves it really red. I get it off of them immedietely, so I don't know why it burns them up so bad. I took the twin who had the most symptoms to the doctor twice-first time they said it was a viral stomach bug (he did throw up twice). 2nd time-they suggested the same-a stool culture. That was today and he hasn't gone since.
Avatar n tn Hello, This was posted back in '08, but my son seems to have the same problem. Although, we just noticed the rash and have not gone through any cycles or anything. Have you found a solution to Jackson's problem? Any advice?
Avatar n tn In our area we also have pharmacist compounders that take different things and put them together to make a remedy, they are especially great at things like diaper rash, etc. Also I am not sure about this for yeast infection but I know that Crisco (yes the cooking grease) works well for diaper rashes. NOT the oil but the actual can of white grease. It offers a layer of protection against the diaper and keeps the urine and poop away from their skin.
Avatar n tn My daughter is 2 and 1/2 years old and is not toilet trained. Over the last couple of months I've noticed her diapers are not as wet as they usually were and she's been drinking the same as usual. I didn't think too much of it until about two weeks ago she became very constipated. Her urine also started having a very strong and foul odor. I started making her drink more just in case she was a little dehydrated.
171768 tn?1324233699 She said that there were 3 possibilities for the hives- 1) viral infection, but she said it was unlikely since she has no cold symptoms 2) reaction to something she ate or was exposed to- not likely since we haven't left the house in days and she hasn't eaten anything new 3) sometimes kids get unexplained hives- it can last up to a week with no known cause i guess i'm just kinda confused because the only kind of hives i've ever seen are the small bumps that surface like a rash- i've never see
Avatar f tn The rash appears to be better in the morning and through out the day the redness comes back to the dots and by night it is back to the same condition as the night before. It does not appear to cause him pain or itch and he has not had a fever, cold, or any signs of sickness. Please help!
Avatar f tn She started with a bad cough, low grade fever, and a rash. The rash makes her itch, is pink/red in color, and are not uniform. The rashes are all shapes, and some areas are very puffy, and others are rough looking. I have taken her to the allergist and pediatrician. She took a series of benadryl, and steroids, which helped for a week or so. She has broken out just about every day since then, epecially around her wrists, legs, waist line, and ankles.
Avatar f tn My three year old daughter has a dry patchy red rash on both sides of her lower back. Started small and light about 2 weeks ago has recently been spreading. Bumpy texture. I have not seen her itch it and she has not complained of any pain in that area. What is this? Should I take her to a doctor? Can I purchase a cream?
Avatar n tn Some days it looked like it was healing, but then went back to keep growing. Last Thursday,we went back to the drs office, but a different dr saw her and prescribed oral antibiotics because he thought it was inflamed and probably infected. After a week yesterday,we are on the 3rd oral antibiotic, because she is either getting side effects and/or is not able to take the medicine without fighting and crying because they taste very bad.
Avatar n tn He diagnosed it as Eczema. The rash clears up with steroid and then comes back with in a week. My concern is the use of steroid. I am monitoring her diet but its very hard to pinpoint what is the trigger. I use an ointment to keep the area moisturized all the time. Please suggest what else i can do?
Avatar f tn (Which never happens) Well he had diarrhea which is horrible because the only time he gets that is when he's sick! And it left a really bad rash on his booty and around his creases down there!! he was crying the whole time I was trying to clean him up! So I had to put him in a warm bath to get the rest off!!:( I put corn starch on it and after getting his clothes on he wanted to go back to bad!:( I really hope he isn't sick with some kind of bug!!:( I hate it when he's sick!!
Avatar n tn all his tests come back normal including liver,kideys, diabetes IBS and crohns.according to the docs he will row out of it once he gets older his gutts will heal but he is still in hospital and on IV for the past 6 weeks.hen they take him off IV he starts to get dehyderated in 2 days.if anyone has any clue about it could you please let me know.
Avatar n tn We as a family have gone for a vacation to Florida last weekend. My toddler is now 28 months. He had no allergies from birth. But after coming from vacation, I've noticed few red patches or rashes like on his lower rib part, within a day it is spreading. Now I can see the same in his chest, on his back and some on his face too. Is it any sun damage or any other allergic blisters. I'm not sure whether it is itchy...since he is not itching any part of the body.
