Toddler rash diagnosis

Common Questions and Answers about Toddler rash diagnosis


Avatar f tn He took one look and knew it was a type of yeast infection - basically, it starts as slight diaper rash but develops into a larger rash that doesn't respond to typical treatment. 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.
1198479 tn?1267789307 My 21 year old daughter developed a rash overnight on the back of both of her hands. The rash is painful as, it stings and burns, sometimes itchy. Soap, lotion AND water makes it sting worse. She hasn't changed anything in her home (cleaning supplies, etc.) and the cleaning staff at her job say they haven't changed anything. Here are two links to see what the rash looks like on each hand: Left Hand- Right Hand- http://i138.
Avatar n tn We live in southern California. We as a family have gone for a vacation to Florida last weekend. My toddler is now 28 months. He had no allergies from birth. But after coming from vacation, I've noticed few red patches or rashes like on his lower rib part, within a day it is spreading. 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...
1670993 tn?1303750620 You can give your child non-sedating antihistamines such as Cetirizine or Loratadine(Claritin) when the rash appears. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms. You may give Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. Also apply calamine lotion and a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash.
Avatar f tn 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. Could the hydrocoritsone have weakened his skin in that short of amount of time?
Avatar n tn My 19 month old son has come out in a big rash all over the right hand side of his tummy and chest and on the inside of his right arm. He was awake lots in the night crying and was sick earlier on today too. Does anyone have any idea as to what it could be as i am worried.
Avatar f tn about 5 or so days ago i started to get these small red very itchy bumps all over my body. i thought it might be a new shampoo or a delated alergy to honey, so i stopped using both automatically. its been 4 or so days since and they still arent exactly going away. old ones are drying up and are just a itchy red scab, and new red itchy bumps are showing up near the dried up ones. thought i was a scratch infections, but all scratches/injuries/breaks in my skin are healing beautifully.
1151771 tn?1262025120 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. Now since she is getting painful sores, so it looks like infected hair follicles and again not yeast infection.
Avatar f tn Last night she really coughing but this morning she has woke up with flushed cheeks and a slight rash under the skin on her chest and red blotchy rash on her arms any ideas?
Avatar f tn Is there any home remedies I can use to help my toddler for this fungus or does he need another type of treatment or see a dermatologist. He is almost 3 yrs old and intact.
Avatar n tn Have you ruled out heat rash??? I don't know how itchy it is but heat rash involves blocked sweat glands and it can definately form into a raised rash. Another possibility is discoid eczema. Unexplained dermatitis is a real thing as well. I have 'something' going on with one of my fingers. It will flair up into an itchy, very small raised rash, and then I scratch and the skin gets shiny and it peals. It does this a couple of times a year and is ONLY on my pinkie. ?????
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 toddler has raised,red bumps with small,white heads on extremedies, they itch and appear to be insect bites.
Avatar m tn unfortunately the other day I did not know i was about to have a breakout... a couple hours prior to noticing a blister my toddler child shared a fork with me for dinner. What are the chances that my child will now have cold sores too? I have been doing some research online and the pictures of children who have cold sores is horrible! Is there any sort of preventative treatment for children to make sure they do not suffer from a painful and horrible breakout?
Avatar n tn I have come accross some stuff but nothing to helpfull. If anyone knows anything that would cause a toddler to get blisters on the bottom of his foot could you please help! My fiance is so hurt and upset by these allogations, if there is anyone out there that could help us it would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks to all!
4413671 tn?1354204833 Have them get some wipes for sensitive skin and keep the nose and rash area clean he may need some cream for the rash, what do his parents say about it ?
Avatar f tn clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate cream for two weeks. the rash eventually went away but it came back in other places, both legs, both thighs, both arms and fore arms, stomach, back, back of neck. I'v qiut using the cream for five days now due to the using it already for two weeks as the pharmacist told me. Went to the e.r last night due to the rash spreading and after explaining all this to him.
Avatar f tn I am struggling with the recent news, wondering what this means for my unborn child, my toddler, my husband, my family the kids I work with everyday... I have this stigma of a disease that can ONLY SPREAD VIA SEX...and yet I am told to be extra careful. Can someone I love catch it because I didn't wash my hand properly after using the restroom? Perhaps I failed to wipe down that public toilet seat properly? Can I really spread it this way?
1714912 tn?1308691554 The condition is not associated with sun exposure. The spots are 5-15mm in diameter. To confirm the diagnosis, it is better to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. 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 doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Fever, very swollen lymph nodes and frequently a body rash that would accompany. The illness would last a few days then dissipate. Occasionally his joints would flare up. Sometimes his wrists and fingers. Most often one or both knees. Lately he has been unable to move his neck or turn his head. He describes the pain as sharp and internal- not muscular. His latest fever and spinal/neck pain- MD prescribed Ceftin. The rash came back and then a new alarming symptom developed- Dermatographism.
