Common Questions and Answers about Skin infection toddler

1714912 tn?1308691554 Hello, If it is a fungal infection, then you should get a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done to confirm the diagnosis. If it is a fungal infection then she may need topical and oral antifungals for the same. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn The way I understand it from what I have read in articles I pulled up Cellulitis is caused by bacteria infection in the skin (like Staph) and can be very dangerous as it can cause Septis and get in the bloodstream. I suggest you really question the doctor and find out if he can tell you what can be done to correct the situation. I want her to go to a "Dermatologist" to see if they can help her. These places just seem to pop up suddenly.
Avatar f tn She was prescribed econozole - however, many actually get relief from over-the-counter topical creams (apply to the skin where the rash is) for yeast infection. Perhaps your daughter's doctor, pharmacist, or nurse could advise you over the phone if it's worth trying.
Avatar f tn i know this site is for men not toddlers but my 3 yr old had circumsission last thursday (6 days ago) the swelling still there, he's just finished his prescribed ointment(polyfax)which he had to have 3 times daily. he's only just stopped having blood, still oozing.
Avatar m tn I think he did have skin-to-skin contact with my private area though.. but obviously it was skin not covered by his nappy so his upper thighs/outlines of his buttocks were exposed, can you catch the virus via contact with that skin? Also would the drs have known/suspected it if it was a herpes outbreak?
Avatar n tn I thought it may be an allergic reaction, however, it has happened a few different times while we were visiting different locations. Reddish, raised skin appears above his sock line. Is this due to heat, and how do we prevent this? We live in GA, so it is always hot and humid!
Avatar n tn One differential for vesicles containing a clear fluid is impetigo which may be caused by a staphylococcal infection of the skin. Previous cuts or bites in the skin may be infected by the organism.Staphylococcus normally resides in the skin but may cause disease when there is a cut or injury to the skin, low immune response and poor hygiene. Impetigo is contagious.
Avatar n tn Hello, Impetigo is a highly contagious superficial bacterial skin infection. Primarily caused by Staphylococcus aureus and sometimes by Streptococcus pyogenes. Topical and oral antibiotics are the treatment of choice. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist and get prescribed oral antibiotics also because sometimes topical therapy with antibiotic creams is not sufficient for the treatment.
Avatar m tn should the rash linger longer than a week or get worse, she should be seen. children often get impetigo in that area which is a staph skin infection. it could just be a drool rash too - kids get those a lot too.
Avatar n tn I think they are fine as long as you pick one of the tearless kind, and as long as your toddler doesn't have really sensitive skin. Both my kids love baths in general, but I don't put bubbles in every single time. They tend to get dry skin if they take too many bubble baths.
Avatar f tn 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. The strep test was done because 2 weeks before the petechiae started he had a very bad rash that was believed to be from an allergy. A mixture of hydrocorisone and miconozole was used for about 2 weeks or so to take away the rash along with Zyrtec. The petechiae was not present until he had this rash.
Avatar n tn My son developed multiple skin bridges (practically all skin is reattached) after circumcision. Unfortunately we did not address this issue properly earlier. He is now 4 years old and doctor suggested that he need to be re-circumcised since despite skin bridges there are way to much skin left. Doctor also said that we have an option not to do anything, but it looks really weird.
Avatar f tn Even if the skin on my butt was touching her butt. The panty does not cover the whole butt area and her butt skin was firm touching the skin on mine. I don't know how long for.
1151771 tn?1262025120 Hello, From the symptoms initially as it was a red skin rash, so it most likely is due to eczema. Yeast infection presents with red rash which is very itchy. Another possibility can be diaper rash which can occur due to contact dermatitis to the material of the diaper and urinating and sweating makes it worse. Use cotton diapers for some days and expose her to the air for some time after urinating and washing.
676912 tn?1332812551 s, well to many can cause a yeast infection, just like if a woman uses soap in the vagina, it can cause a chemical yeast infection and so forth. Also, make sure the undies he is wearing are rinsed well, or if you have switched detergents/body soap recently. I have to use ALL Free on my boys and on myself as we all have eczema. I too am not a HUGE fan of A&D ointment, I mainly use it on the kids for chapped lips.
Avatar f tn I hope this doesn't come off creepy but my toddler often likes to come in and shower with me. I have never had a break out, nor have I been tested for HSV2, but since now I'm learning that the virus can lay dormant for years and years, is it possible for me (if I'm infected) to spread to my toddler?
Avatar f tn Sounds like a lil infection poor thing!
Avatar n tn The result of her urine test makes me suspicious because the sample was definitely contaminated as it was in contact with her skin - they used a plastic bag that was stuck to her diaper area, the bag was full and the content was in contact with her skin. What I am really concerned about is that her doctor highly recommends to make another test - a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) to check for the reflux.
Avatar f tn My 13month old daughter has a rash all over her body, the doctor says that it is a viral infection. She has small raised bumps that are alittle red. The thing that worries me is that it is still spreading, It does not seem to bother her at all, she is alittle cranky at night but she is also teething. We are going back tomorrow to see our doctor because this morning she woke up with a fever. Wondering if any other parents have any experience or even pictures.

Avatar n tn Rashes on skin are temporary conditions affecting athletes that can sometimes be a warning sign of a serious skin infection.
