Rash on face toddler

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on face 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 f tn My 18 month old daughter has a splotchy red rash on her cheeks, the dr said it was hives. The only other bumps on her body are sporadic and are mostly skin colored. could it be something else?
Avatar n tn Hi. My 20 month old son has had a rash on his face for about five months. It began all around his eyes. Now it is distinctly shaped like the nose/mask he wears for two puffs a day of Flovent to treat reactive airway/asthma. (FYI, when it was around his eyes, he was receiveing nebulizer tx twice a day, also with a mouth/nose mask, but it kind of blew into his eyes. Roughly the change to it being nose/mouth centered correlates with the switch to the Flovent inhaler.
Avatar f tn I am not using any soap, instead using oatmeal on her face. The skin tone on the cheeks have become much darker compared to other parts of the face. Can it be cause by any food allergy? she seems to be having some problems like heavy breathing/disturbed sleep with too much of dairy (yoghurt and cheese) some time.
Avatar n tn I noticed it yesterday when I changed his diaper and it was on his chest, tummy and back. After his nap yesterday it has spread to his neck and hairline and there are a few spots on his face. He is still quite active and eats & drinks normally, sleeps normally. The rash does NOT seem to be itching as he has not been fussy nor does he scratch or touch it.
Avatar n tn However, (not sure if the following is related at all) just a few months ago when the weather started getting colder and we turned the heat on, he started getting a dry rash-like patches on both his legs. Sometimes some patches would last just a day, other times they stick around for a while. Sometimes as we're putting fragrance free Eucerin on it, it probably burns and he cries. But other than that, it doesn't bother him or seem to itch throughout the day.
Avatar n tn He has had pimple like problems on his eyes with some swelling that comes and goes. But he now has what looks like chicken pox at times on his face that has been constant for several weeks. Lots of red bumps and some with small white pustules with a larger red area around those. Always on his cheeks, eyes and nose now. The best site I found was Dr.greene site. It says it's more prevalant in boys but girls can have it too.
Avatar n tn a small red rash showed on my 2 yr old boy right side of the waist, as time went by the outer ring is red and inside its white. and it continues to grow wider, what can this be.
Avatar n tn My 23rd months old just got some kind of acne on his right part of his face. there are so many tiny pimples. What should I do? What does it couse acne on toddlers?
Avatar n tn on Christmas morning my daughter woke up with some red bumps on her face. They have increased each day and her lips also have sores and bleed if you just touch them. She also has some sores on her hands and on her bottom. The doctor mentioned it might be hand, foot, and mouth disease, but she doesn't have any sores in her mouth, no fever, and the pain in her lips is extreme and she seems to be continuing to get more sores on her face. Help!
Avatar n tn My 2 1/2 year old daughter has this picking issue as well. She's already left two scars on her face, three on her arm and one on her leg. She is actually at it again tonight and has created a huge hole across her entire chin. I took her to the doctor last week for this. he first said that we needed to be careful as staf infection is rampant in these type of cases. So he gave us a script for a save - which is helping the healing -- but unfortunately does nothing to stop it.
Avatar f tn He does not have a fever or respiratory symptoms. He is on his second dose of Augmentin. Is the rash related to the eye injury or the conjunctivitis?
Avatar n tn My daughter has had a rash on her face since right before Christmas. It has stayed localized to around her mouth (under her nose and on her chin) and most recently her right eye (below and on the eyelid). It hasn't occurred on or under her left eye. It looks like little raised red dots (some larger than others), but there has been no seeping, oozing, or crusting. It does not appear to itch because I have not seen her scratch at it.
Avatar n tn I tried to remember if he had a new food lately, but couldn't think of anything (and I've been conservative on what he eats since the rash appeared). The rash, when I first noticed it, was about 3 days ago, & was on the inside of his arms, chest, stomach, & back. I gave him a dose of Benedryl reguarly, over the next 24 hours, which seemed to help it to go away on the arms & the make the red color disappear, but it is still on his back & stomach.
Avatar f tn My 1 yr old daughter was recently on a walk with her nanny and came home with bright red dots (elevated) on her face and red spots (non-elevated) on her legs and torso. (no white heads on the spots) They do not appear to bother her. Once inside the spots proceeded to clear up. This reaction has never happened before while on her walks. Additionally, her nose has started to run. Now, the spots and dots come everytime she is outside.
Avatar f tn 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 My two year old has a pea sized chalazion on her lower right lid for 2 months. We saw a pediatric opthamologist who gave us the option of surgery or doing nothing. I am wondering what the risks are to not having it removed? It is really not a bother to her and cosmetically it is only noticeable when looking at her from the side. We were not at all consistent about compresses initially, but have been doing them at least twice daily now. Is it too late for us to try this therapy?
Avatar n tn Although not contagious, eczema can become infected if scratched. Infants can develop eczema almost anywhere, but behind the knees and elbows, and on the face, neck and belly are the most common sites. Keep the skin of your baby adequately moisturized, limit the no. of baths and bathe her with luke warm water not hot water as it dries the skin.Use a very mild soap like Aveeno, Dove or Cetaphil and pat the skin dry, never rub and immediately apply a thick moisturizer(mild,non perfumed).
Avatar m tn my 3 year old son has developed a skin rash. He started to develop an itch on his penis and had pimple like dots 3 weeks ago and his doctor said it was normal and give him some onintment which cleared the dots. It has been 3 weeks not, his itch has continue from his penis to the rest of his arms and legs and back of the neck. I put olive oil to keep it from being dry and it appears patches of dry flaky spots developed and looked like it could be eczema.
Avatar n tn 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. What kind of safety measures do we have to take, can I get the expert advice. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn I then began watching him sit. When he sits he will not sit with weight equally distributed on both hips, he'll immediately shift his weight to one side or the other, or need to sit sideways with a leg up, then he's fine. Since a 5 point harness prevents him from doing so, he can't figure out how to fix whatever it is that hurts. This week he also started it in the stroller. He will not sit on my lap without shifting to one side or the other.
Avatar f tn My 6 week old son has started to break out really bad, on his ears his eye brows and in the crevices on his neck. I try to clean there but it seems to be getting worse. Has this happened to anyone else? If so what was it and how do I take care of it? He even has dadruff that doesn't seem to bad but when it is wet you can really see it. Please help me. Should I call his pediatrician?
Avatar f tn , atopic dermatitis) is believed to have a hereditary component, and often runs in families whose members also have hay fever and asthma. Itchy rash is particularly noticeable on face and scalp, neck, inside of elbows, behind knees, and buttocks. Recent studies provide hints that food allergy may trigger atopic dermatitis. For these people, identifying the allergens could lead to an avoidance diet to help minimize symptoms, although this approach is still in an experimental stage.
Avatar n tn My 17 month old son developed a raised, sandpaper-like rash on his torso and back about a week or 10 days ago. It is barely visible, but when you look closely, you can see tiny red bumps. It doesn't seem to bother him, although I do catch him scratching at it absentmindedly from time to time - but not enough to cause any breaks in the skin. He has just recently gotten over roseola (about 2-3 weeks ago), but this rash appeared several days (maybe more than a week?
280369 tn?1316705641 He has broken out a couple of times almost like this (I think it was not quite 2 weeks ago it happened) but not nearly as bad. It's all over his belly, back, underarms a little on his face, and neck, and even in his private area and inner thighs. It's not on his legs or arms really. In his private area, some spots are a little blotchy and the one area on the side of his face. My husband thinks it's the chicken pox...but how do you know for sure? Could it just be some sort of rash?
Avatar n tn however not sure what to do about my face....sigh. ive read on here most people get the neck/chest rash, does anyone get blotchiness on their face?? the rash comes on my chest when im nervous but if something is really embarassing like a school talk *shudder* or something like that my whole face gets really really red and blotchy and people always comment. so just wondering if anyone gets it on their face? anyway, would love to hear back from anyone!!
