Face rash in infants

Common Questions and Answers about Face rash in infants


Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be due to pityraisis alba or millaria.Millaria is especially common in children and infants due to their underdeveloped sweat glands and is found in hot climate. 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.
Avatar f tn Its normal for infants esp. 1 month old to get yeast rash, but frequent and persistent ones could reflect compromised immunity. Were you at an increased risk prior to being pregnant? (Multiple partners etc) Please get tested because every symptom will have you losing sleep.
516780 tn?1296516575 My one month old daughter has a rash all over her face, her chest and now has a little on her arm. She even has it on the back of her neck and on her head (she has tons of hair, but you can tell she has it on her head). She doesn't have any other symptoms (no fever, no spitting up and not extremely fussy). She eats just fine. I know I need to get her into the doctor, but we don't have insurance and I just moved to Belding, MI.
7558356 tn?1410715309 Baby powder can cause respiratory problems in infants and seniors. I work in a nursing home and we're not allowed to use it anymore. Even though you're not using it close to the baby's face it's still in the air and it's bad for them to inhale it.
Avatar f tn So I work in a milk bank which includes mixing breast milk for the the infants in the hospital. Two weeks ago I accidentally splashed breast milk on my face. I immediately washed it off. I was wanting to the chances of hiv transmission. Thank you I am freaking out a little because I started to develop a rash on my arms. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Miliaria is a common ailment in hot and humid conditions, such as in the tropics and during the summer season. It is especially common in children and infants due to their underdeveloped sweat glands. This occurs when the sweat gland ducts get plugged due to dead skin cells or bacteria The trapped sweat leads to irritation, itching or to a rash of very small blisters, usually in a localized area of the skin.

Avatar m tn it blanches upon pressure appears 12–48 hours after the fever generally starts on the chest, armpits, and behind the ears spares the face (although some circumoral pallor is characteristic) is worse in the skin folds. These are called Pastia lines (where the rash runs together in the arm pits and groins) appear and can persist after the rash is gone may spread to cover the uvula.
Avatar n tn The rash will be confined to the specific area that came into contact with the offending agent.Eczema is a common disorder in infants and is associated with dry and itchy patches of skin. I sincerely advise you to consult a dermatologist/pediatric dermatologist and discuss these possibilities with him.Pls don,t apply anything without consulting as it may aggravate the condition. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries.

I don't know if it's because I accidentally used the wrong dryer sheets one day or if it's a part of the cold or what. It looks better today, but still there. The last couple of days he just wants Mommy and is extra cuddly....I love that part! =)He also has more gas as well. But I don't want him to be miserable as it affected his sleep last night.
280369 tn?1316702041 1/2 ounce to an ounce a day, by 2 weeks they want to see at least back to birth weight. My first was a moose, 8lbs 5 ounces at birth, 7lbs 15 ounces on d/c 2 days later, at 10 days old he was 10 lbs 4 ounces!
1395422 tn?1308016251 Position the baby properly because not perfect latch can cause bruising. To do this stabilize the infants face and keep semi-upright position to prevent gumming.Moisturize with lanolin and perhaps mild corticosteroids. Guess this should be fine and bear with me for the delayed reply since it concers a baby and the mother,both precious. Best wishes.
1428481 tn?1340593131 I have a strong feeling that my 2 month old son has pink eye! I have the eye drops (Vigamox) on hand and was wandering if I could use them on my son. I have heard a lot about pink eye but never in infants so I'm not sure how to treat an infant with Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis). He has green mucus basically gluing his right eye together. I have had to wipe it clean multiple times with a wet cloth.
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.
193609 tn?1292180293 Took Ashtyn to the doctor today because he had a pimple like rash on his face. It started this morning as 4 bumps, and now he has 7 on his face, two on his left wrist, and one on his right elbow. At the doctors his temp was 101. The doctor has no idea what the rash is so he had a 2nd doctor come in, and he too had no idea what the rash was. They told me to watch it, that they were concerned mostly about the fever, and to come back if anything changed. By the time I got home, his temp was 102.7.

1961938 tn?1398718101 I'm 23w2d and this morning I woke up with a red rash all over my face. Is this normal? It doesn't itch and its only on my face.
Avatar f tn I've had a reoccurring rash that I get around my mouth. I had been putting betamethasone on it which would clear it up but then would come back within a week if I quit using cream. Finally got insurance and was prescribed a po antibiotic and triamcinolone acetonide dental paste?? Even that seemed to help and antibiotics kept it gone for about 1-3 months but back. I'm 28. Ive quit using all products and even towels on face to no avail.
