Avatar n tn Okay, it does have its similarities to eczema in looks. But why only my face? Usually its on arms and legs. It doesnt get dry like eczema either. I just use a regular bar of soap on my face just like I always have.
Avatar n tn My child broke out in a red rash on his face - tested negative for strep - no sign of illness. The red went away and the skin is now very, very dry. The same has happened to my face. What could it be? It is not itchy, it was initially alittle warm.
Avatar f tn My son had eczema. I used eczema lotion I think it was aveno along with eczema otemeal baths. It's a powder that comes in little packets you put in the bath water. I also used dreft baby detergent and organic sent free soap for the bath. Also don't bathe baby too often that will dry the skin out even more.

Avatar n tn Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching. No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months) If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.Other possibilities have to be ruled out then.
Avatar f tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of contact dermatitis and eczema. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Avoid using any lotions and creams over the face for the meantime. Wash your face with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Pat your face dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves.
Avatar n tn I have a rash on my face it is quite itchy, it is a light pinkish red. Could you tell me what it could be and what things i can do to make it less itchy?
Avatar n tn We applied hydrocortisone cream to see if it was just an allergic rash. The redness has gone away, but spread over his face. It is like rough skin, almost sandpaper feeling, that you can't see till you are up close to him. He is perfectly fine, no fever, no complaint of sore throat. Please tell me your take on this. Thank you for your time.

338963 tn?1253660822 my son has eczema since he was 3 weeks old..he also has heat rash at the same time which at first i confused between the two. I now learnt which part of his skin that has eczema and which part doesnt. And yes, eczema should exhibit dry patches on the skin that felt rough to the touch while heat rashes are pimply. My son eczena started out on the cheek and later it gets on the head and on his back. Eczema on the head will exhibit yellow crust which what they call craddle cap?
Avatar m tn about a year ago i've got this rash that occurs on my face. Its itchy at first then it spreads all over my face and sometime even my neck and elbow.I can barely open my mouth or eye because its so dry. It last about a week then the red patchy rash start to get extremely dry and starts peeling off. i've had this problem about 9 times now and getting very frustrated.
Avatar f tn Hi, A couple of months ago I had a red rash/dry spot show up on my bridge of my nose and my left part of my face under my eye. Since that time I have confirmed Eczema in my ears and on my scalp. Although the ears and scalp are annoying the spots on my face are really bothering me. I work in a professional environment and even with makeup they do not look very attractive. Prior to this rash/spots on my face showing up, I was vacationing in the Caribbean and they have not gone away.
Avatar m tn Hello, Eczema is characterised by red, dry patches which are itchy. If the rash is non itchy then it can be pityriasis alba. Pityriasis alba is a common skin condition mostly occurring in children and usually seen as dry, fine-scaled, pale patches on the face. No treatment is required and the patches in time will settle in due course of time. The redness, scale and itch if present may be managed with simple emollients and sometimes hydrocortisone, a weak steroid, is also used.
Avatar f tn About a week ago my face started to break out in a rash. At first I thought it was my faces reaction to a new laundry detergent but that wouldn't make any sense since this rash was only on my face. My skin has always been very sensitive so I decided to just wait it out until it went away. It never did. My skin is blotchy, itchy, and the blotches are a bit raised. I am african american. I am at a total loss and would love any help or suggestions.
Avatar f tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be due to eczema. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash). Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g.

Avatar n tn I have a had a persisitant rash on my face now, for over a month. It started out as flesh colored bumps and it itched. The bumps became very red and the itch got worse. I have both eczema and severe allergies. The rash is just along the right side of my face along the jaw line. It has not spread, and no one else has caught it from me. I went to my physician and he said to use 1% hydrocodozone cream twice a day. It went away briefly and then came back. Now the cream is not helping at all.
Avatar f tn My 1 1/2 month old has developed a rash on his face (majority on right side) it didn't look like it's bothering him but is this normal?? I also been looking up some stuff on the internet and I came across baby acne....any opinions??
Avatar f tn My daughter developed a sudden rash on her arm a few months ago. It consists of four or five roundish spots about 1-1.5" in diameter. They are slightly raised, light on the inside, darker on the outside and grainy. Sometimes they become more pronounced ~ I don't know what the trigger is. After a few weeks, she developed a rash around her mouth (looks like sever chapped lips) and her cheeks (reddish spots, bumpy).
Avatar n tn My daughter is almost 12 months old. She started this rash on her forehead and some on her cheeks last two weeks. I first thought it was heat rash or that she was allergic to something. Now, the red rash have turn into dry skin on her face. It sound like it is eczema, but i'm not sure.

Avatar m tn 4 years ago a rash has appeared on my right back like eczema or dermatophytosis with rings. My dermatologist thinked it was eczema so I have taken diprosone cream. It didn't work and the rash has spread : face, arms, back. My dermatologist gave me Lamisil cream with oral terbinafine during 2 weeks. My rash has almost disappeared. It came back 1 month after taking terbinafine. I have done a mycological examination 1 month after taking terbinafine but it was negative.
Avatar m tn At the end of last year, we went to the doctor as she had a rash in the creases of her legs and arms, as well as a bit of a body rash. The doctor at the time said is was either interior/impetigo (I cannot remember which now) in any case those rashes went away, leaving just these two spots on her face. There is a slight indentation on one on the spots. We also went to a dermatologist who said that this looks like hemangioma, but I am not convinced. Can this occur at 3?
