Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes in babies


Avatar f tn I tried dreft, had too much perfume and my kids broke out in rashes from it. I switched to ALL free and clear and havent changed ever since. Any free and clear is fine just so you dont have to worry about any allergic reactions. Also A LOT CHEAPER. If you want to use regular detergent thats fine too, just monitor babies skin and if you notice a rash, switch to a dte and perfume free one like ive suggested. Take care.
Avatar f tn Is it normal for a baby to have a little butt rash? I read that breastfed babies are subject to having more diaper rashes because they have more poo than normal.
8793709 tn?1409594060 Yea I'm with @schenner2 I don't use Johnson &Johnson either anymore.... the shampoo actually does more harm than good for a babies hair and my kids have sensitive skin like me and I used that lotion on my face one day and it burned so bad had my face so red after washing it off immediately. That's when I decided it can be good in babies skin....Burt's bee's, honest, and aveeno baby are good, gentle baby products in my experience....
Avatar f tn Diaper rash is caused by skin breakdown. If the skin is moist and you put a cream on you trap in the moisture and it causes the skin to break down. Just make sure baby is nice and dry and you'll be fine.
Avatar m tn hi..... I have odd type skin rashes or swelling..... I live in cold county(canada). I get rashes only in the hands(from fingers to wrist only) that too only if go out only. Inside the house,I'm pretty normal. but once I go out(where the temperature will be in minus) I get rashes only in hands which is not covered, rest of my body will be covered with jackets and winter shoes. so which made me to think. whether this rash is because of the climatic change (this sounds really weird).
Avatar m tn I have this rashes, it started off with small circles, every time when i get up in the morning it grows bigger and it goes all over my body. it will look like big patches. it itch alot. took injections but still wont go away. what kind of allergy is this and how can i make it go away?
Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
Avatar f tn They're on my arms, legs, and mid section
Avatar n tn Hi, Bumps that suddenly develop in the face or the body may be due to hives, a skin reaction to allergen, medication or infection. They are pink to red bumps or slightly raised patches of skin which may last for a few minutes or hours. In this condition, it is important to determine and avoid the trigger that could be causing this. Are there other symptoms present? Since the location is at her back, buttocks and thighs, it may also be due to an irritation or possible allergic reaction.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to eczema skin which presents as red, dry itchy flaky rash in response to an allergic reaction. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).
Avatar f tn I don't know what cause it, but I have rashes in my neck, stomach, arms it started 3 weeks ago. I tried using hydrocortison ointment no help. The rashes comes and goes.Is there something I can use OT that will get rid of the rashes? Can this cause by prenatal vitamins? Or Birth Control pills which I've been taking for so many yrs.

Avatar f tn My 2year old had a bad diaper rash due to diarrhea and I tried everything. Milk of magnesia worked great. I would pour some in a container soak the cotton balls in the milk of magnesia and rubbed on the rash I also used the burping cloths with warm water to wipe him instead of the baby wipes since it irritates the rash.
Avatar f tn Make sure to wash in cold water!!
Avatar f tn To find out whether your child is having contact dermatitis to milk(eczema)or he is having milk allergy(rashes are present in the mild form of milk allergy),skin tests and food challenge tests have to be done by an allergist.Pls consult him for that. Hope it helps.

Avatar n tn My pediatrician told me most rashes are very normal and common for newborn babies. She said until they are 2 months they really don't worry about it. My baby is almost three months and still has "crowning cap" dry skin on eyebrows and on her scalp. I wouldn't worry too much.
