Common Questions and Answers about Red face rash toddler


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 The specialist recommended we d/c the Flovent to see if it's that--but even the ped was reluctant to take him off the asthma tx to treat the rash. Not sure how to procede...The rash is red and bumpy and often angry looking. Son doesn't scratch it or seem annoyed. Doesn't look dry, crusty, weepy. Gets better and worse (seemingly at random).
Avatar n tn It is sometimes a few whitehead pimples scattered around her entire face, and other times it is just tiny red dots or bumps clustered mostly around her mouth. It is also affecting her eyes, starting out as general swelling and then turning into a little pimple on the outside corner of both upper lids. I was told that the eye problem was probably styes or chalzions and not related to the other pimples, but I'm not so sure.
Avatar n tn It is cleared up alot more today, not as red and I see nothing on his face. It looks more like dry skin today. I called the pediatrician this morning and the nurse said that since the office has seen so many cases of different flu viruses if they can diagnosis it over the phone the better. She told me to do Benadryl every 6 hrs and call her in tomorrow. The rash itself does not seem to bother him, he has never scratched or rubbed at it. Any other suggestions?
Avatar n tn that has mainly manifested itself on his face in the form of small red patches. 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.
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 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 Now a year and a half later we are dealing with a child who ***** her thumb and picks her face to the point that she has scaring, sores and red bumps on her cheeks. I am so heart broken because she is destroying her skin, I don't know what to do! Doctor's give a cream, say she"ll quit picking when she quits sucking her thumb,that could be years!!. What can I do?? I read that it could be a form of OCD, I will not have my child drugged for this, there has to be something else!
Avatar f tn Today he has a facial rash that begins near his eye and is spreading down his face. Also his affected eyelid is red and scaly. 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 It seem to orginally start with a dribble rash and then tiny red pimples seemed to appear on his face interspersed with angry red patches. These patches are on his chin, cheeks, under his left eye. I went to the doctor who gave me antibotics, I want back a month later as they had no effect and she admitted she didn't know what the rash was and referred me to a skin specialist, I am now waiting on that appointment.
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 For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
Avatar n tn I just put a warm wash cloth on it and cleaned it with sterilid, and under the crusty stuff, it looks like three giant whitehead zits. It is a bit more red than usual. Do you think that this is a problem? i.e. does this warrant a sunday call to our pediatric optho? It looks like they are going to pop.
Avatar m tn I think it is very similar to pulmocort. He has developed a very red rash in the exact area of the mask. I am trying to get him off the mask and to the pipe but it has been difficult. He has been treated with many things from hydrocortisone to various antibiotic creams,ointments, and currently erythromycin gel. The gel is mainly alcohol and really burns his face. Does anyone have any ideas of how to help?
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 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 Try googling "cradle cap" and see if you can find a photo of it. Here is a description: "The red, flaky pieces of scalp that looks like dandruff on your baby is called 'cradle cap.' Initially, you'll notice the redness of your baby's scalp, and it sometimes can extend on the creases of the neck, behind the ears, armpits, face, and even in the diaper area. "Cradle cap is not a serious problem, but still it is bothersome, especially to the parents.
280369 tn?1316705641 Sounds more like a heat rash. When you get chicken pox, they start as little red bumps, but quickly fill in with fluid and then pop, creating a scab. VERY itchy too, if you recall when you had them. You would probably know in the next day if it is chicken pox by the change in the spots. As for you, it shouldn't be a problem if you already had the chicken pox.
Avatar n tn With this new rash, he currently has no fever and only a slight cough and intermittent runny nose (typical toddler stuff). The only documentation I can find online for fine, sandpaper-like rash is scarlet fever, although he has none of the other strep symptoms. Any idea on what this could be, and how long it will last? Should I rush him to the pediatrician? Advice is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Could be something that was in the water. Is it just red marks or is it red and raised.
Avatar n tn They said to check the levels again in two weeks, and after doing so said the CBC was fine, and they will be calling me with a referral to a dermatologist since they don't know what is causing the rash. What makes me really nervous is that my 18 month old son now also has a petechial rash.
Avatar n tn I look awful, as I'm very pale and the contrast between my pale face with the random red patch near my mouth and my dry, puffy eyelids makes me resemble something out of a horror film... :( Any ideas of what the problem could be or how to fix it? Or has anyone else suffered similar symptoms? All help would be greatly appreciated. :) Alex.
176808 tn?1294681491 runny nose, a red nose, and a little red around her mouth. So, my wife then tried Neutrogena for sensitive skin, and she developed a rash on her body. We feel horrible. We would love for her to be able to enjoy the beach or a pool, but obviously need to protect her skin...We've contacted our doctor, and are in the process of tracking down a local dermatologist who can see her soon. Anyone else had struggles finding an agreeable sunblock for infants? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn I didn't think much of it. He napped and then at dinnertime (no nuts then), a rash spread across his face and then all over his torso. I gave him Benadryl and they went away. The next day we were in and out but not playing outside. When he ate lunch (PB&J), I noticed it again but they were on his face this time. More Benadryl. I took him to the Dr. who gave me an epipen and a referral to an allergist just in case it's related to peanuts all of the sudden. Long story short...
193609 tn?1292183893 Hardly anything calmed him down and it was horrible. Around 4pm, his face broke out in a rash. It was not an immediate cause for alarm because when Ashtyn gets upset, his face gets blotchy. We headed home to Columbus. When we got home around 11:30, Ashtyn was covered in a rash from his head to his hips. He was covered in red spots. So, we took him to the ER at the Children's Hospital. The doctor took one look at him and said he is reacting to the Amoxicillin.
