Avatar n tn This could be a yeast infection or even heat rash. Make sure that her pants are not tight and rubbing up against her. Try feeding her yogurt which will help if it is a yeast infection. Make sure that she is wiping from front to back and cleaning well, because sometimes this can cause irritation. Also make sure that after baths, she is completely dry before getting dressed. You can get corn starch and place in her pants to help with chafing.
Avatar n tn m giving him Motrin as a precaution and am thinking it may be heat rash but being a first time mom and therefore paranoid there are other things that I am thinking. Any suggestions or remedies?
Avatar m tn Still today I see few of them showing up and disappearing. When I asked someone they told me, it is due to heat and called heat rash. I stayed in place where it sweats profusely, and really skin burns. But now I am in very cold place, and you know it is already winter. If these are due to heat rash, they should be gone by now. When I asked the girl, she told me there is no such thing for her, if you have doubt get tested. Can anyone analyze and tell me what are my chances of having HIV.
Avatar n tn How are you? Heat rash is also known as prickly heat and miliaria. This is usually seen in babies but it also affects up to a third of adults living in tropical climates or during hot, humid weather. This develops when your sweat ducts become blocked and perspiration is trapped under your skin. Heat rash looks like a red cluster of pimples or small blisters that maybe associated with itching.
Avatar n tn hives are itchy irregular raise patches of redness and heat can heighten an allergic reaction if your son has been out in the heat when the rash came. it may also be heat rash, but the benedryl and bactine would do him no harm if you give them and they are not what is needed. a cold wash cloth works well on hives and heat rash.
377493 tn?1356502149 He was doing a great job of gaining, but he and I were travelling for 2 weeks. We were in a part of the country where they are experiencing a serious heat wave (we are not at home). He has dropped a bit of weight again. Do you think this could be due to the heat? His appetite was slightly off, but he still seemed to eat fairly well. He hasn't seemed ill in any way with the exception of a very runny nose (mostly green, sometimes clear). He has a Dr.
Avatar f tn ve traveled twice--once to Mexico, once to China--and both times the rash has been out of control. When I was in China, the rash started just after waking up and got worse and worse as the day went on, and it was worse every subsequent day, eventually moving up past my elbows and later beginning around my ankles. My skin was never covered during these times, so it's not a "trapped heat" thing.
Avatar f tn have just looked up this on a dermatology website, but the symptoms do not match, in my case the 'rash' just looks like sunburn, reddening of the skin and has no other characteristics than it feeling hot, like sunburn. in some cases it can appear and disappear in 10 minutes depending on the situation im in, other times it takes a little longer to disappear. i have tried to search many skin conditions on the internet but can not find anything which matches, as no other symptoms persist.
Avatar f tn There are so many things it could be, starting with heat rash because yes you can get it on your legs, so posting a picture or describing it would help. Also, this article might help. http://walking.about.com/od/medhot/a/legrash.
Avatar m tn The allergens or triggering factors like dust, fog, pollens etc. can cause the precipitation of these symptoms. These symptoms are exaggerated esp. in winter or cold environment. There is particular neuronal mechanism exists. When ever you are exposed to allergen there will be release of histamine, this is responsible for raised lesions on skin leading to itching. The order may differ from individuals to individuals. You need to identify such allergen and prevent further exposure.
Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, her symptoms are suggestive of diaper rash a type of irritant dermatitis. It seems secondary to the garments or diaper she is wearing and sweating will worsen the condition. If it is left untreated for more than 3 days then it can lead to Candida (fungal) infection. The symptoms can be managed by use of - White petrolatum, Zinc oxide cream or Sucralfate can be used which acts as protective barrier. - Use of powders such as cornstarch or talcum powder is also helpful.
Avatar n tn My question, can a heat rash last for this long? Its been in the same place and has never spread. Its definately gets worse in the heat, it itches like crazy.
284738 tn?1283106819 They want me to bring her back in just to make sure its not an allergic reaction.. so once again we are headed in to see her ped.

Avatar n tn As Dr Navneet suspects meningitis, I would take your son immediately to the ER room - delay in treatment can be devastating. If he has a rash, press a glass tumber against the rash, if septicaemia/meningitis, the rash will not fade and you will be able to see the rash through the glass. If this happens get medical advice immediately. It is harder to see on dark skin, so check paler areas. Remember someone who is very ill needs medical help even if they have no rash or a rash that fades.
Avatar f tn Hello I got a rash about three weeks after having unprotected vaginal intercourse (he also cummed in me) we also had unprotected sex three times before this but he didn't cum in me. It went away a few days later. I have no other symptoms. They were on my stomach and thighs and were small red, pimply and itchy and my face was also quite sensitive to touch. At the time of the possible infection I also had the morning after pill and started the pill.

Avatar f tn Another possibility is reactive arthritis, which could have occurred in reaction to something—in this case rash. In this case you need to rule out the cause for the hives or urticaria. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or cosmetics.
