Toddler rash spots

Common Questions and Answers about Toddler rash spots


Avatar f tn oh, and did I mention that, in the midst of all this, I gave birth to our second daughter who has only experienced the colds, not the rash or white spots...). Any advice? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Appearing/Disappearing/Reappearing Toddler Facial Rash</a>.
Avatar n tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can continue applying the calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Shee can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin after a dermatologist’s prescription. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid which are available by prescription.
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.
Avatar f tn I checked her sneakers to see if perhaps there was something there botheringher, but found nothing. The spots are on both feet, and on the heel , arch, and area where she steps, found a few spots along the side, but nothing on the topof her feet. I am thinking perhaps this might be a heat rash since it's getting warmer, but i am concerened naturally. I am going to take her to the pediatrician in 1 day or so if the spots don't disappear. Can anyone out there relate, have you heard of this???
Avatar n tn It is now all over his forehead and under both eyes, on his chin and all over the check area. The little spots dispeared very soon after the rash appeared. I have to admit it is crusty in parts which leads me to think it may be eczema at times, however most of the red patches on the face feel soft and normal. He does not have it anywhere else barring a very small patch on the inside of his leg (which is crusty).
Avatar f tn (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. At first I thought, heat rash but the dots appear even when she is in the sun but not hot (i.e. in the car with ac). One pediatrician suggest sun sensitivity, but this is not the first time she has been out in the sun.
Avatar f tn He gets about 10 spots a day, those fade and then he gets new ones. 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.
1670993 tn?1303754220 If he walks outside and there is even a hint of sun or if it is bright at all, he has to squint to see and around his eyes( cheek, temple areas) break out in red UNraised spots. Like Hives.And his eyes will water constantly. The doctors have put him on 2 different allergy meds and neither seem to work. EVen if he wears sunglasses, the light still shines through the top and makes it hard for him to see. He could barely find easter eggs yesterday and there was nothing but clouds in the sky!
171768 tn?1324233699 we noticed some spots on DD this morning- they looked like bug bites on her torso, legs, and arms. they were spread out at first, and different sizes, but more like the sizes of bug bites than hives. I called the dr immediately and made an appointment for this afternoon. By the time we got there, they had spread a lot- still looked the same- like random bug bites. The doctor said they were definitely hives and not chickenpox (which was what i was concerned about).
Avatar n tn Thrush Staph of some sort molluscum contagiousum impetigo (which I am pretty certain it is not) I am not sure what to do and why it is not going away. she has had to rash for about 3 weeks. We have done, heat purging herbs, probiotics, digestive essential oils, neosporin, hydrocortisone, antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizer, washing everything..... I would love some answers. I do not know what else to do.
Avatar n tn No spots on his underarms, some spots on his hands. I'm thinking it's just a heat rash of some sort. He's not hot an clammy. Doesn't seem uncomfortable, no loss of appetite. He's pretty much normal with the exception of the spots. I'm not overly concerned but would like to know what this is or if it is contageous -- I have 4 other boys in the house too and don't want to expose them too long without a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn (Which never happens) Well he had diarrhea which is horrible because the only time he gets that is when he's sick! And it left a really bad rash on his booty and around his creases down there!! he was crying the whole time I was trying to clean him up! So I had to put him in a warm bath to get the rest off!!:( I put corn starch on it and after getting his clothes on he wanted to go back to bad!:( I really hope he isn't sick with some kind of bug!!:( I hate it when he's sick!!
Avatar n tn Does he have any other spots or rash? Abdominal pain?
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 f tn If your toddler exhibits redness and scaly scalp, it is still best to confirm it with your pediatrician. Redness and flakes at this point can also be allergic reactions or other medical conditions." Recommended treatment is to gently rub the spots with olive oil and brush them off with a dry washcloth, or comb them out of the hair with a soft brush or fine comb.
Avatar n tn Hours later, the redness and swelling subsided but there was red spots all over her body. Her fingers were swelling red too. I suspected the pitaya fruit was the allergen beause she was not fed other new types of food that day. Is this possible? What can I do to bring relif to her rashes?
Avatar f tn on tuesday my daughter came home from preschool with red cheeks and a rash. the rash was red and blotchy with spots all over her legs, buttocks, arms, and waist. i put her in the bath and it immediately got better. the rash was gome by morning. wednesday night her feet were swolen with mosquito like bumps. she also had some random ones on her body, but nothing severe. why is this going away and comming back? she says it itches. we have not changed detergent, soaps or food.
1151771 tn?1262028720 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 n tn It started when she was about 1 1/2 and got a rash around her mouth. She would rub the bumps with her fingers while she fell asleep. Now she picks spots on her face all the time. While I am driving, while she is drawing, while she falls asleep, when she is in new situations. I know it is a form of self soothing (she never sucked her thumb or used a pacifier) She always has bandaids on both cheeks, which causes more irritation.
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.
280369 tn?1316705641 My bet is on mild allergic reaction just because of your description of the rash, and if that's ruled out then heat rash. Generally real heat rash is a form of excoriation on the skin and requires some amount of friction in an area of excessive sweating, usually the bumps are raised up. Heat rash appears as more "pimple" or "blister" like.
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 f tn My son has had a rash for the last 15 months. It started out small with a few spots located on his back and stomach. Over the last 15 months it has spread to his entire back, stomach, neck, arms,top of hands, inner thighs and the tops of the feet. We have seen 3 pediatricians, multiple dermatologists (including a pediatric) with no answers. We have done a bx and genetic testing and have tried a few steroid creams with no improvement.
Avatar f tn So it spread all over her body? It does kinda sounds like some kind of an allergic reaction definitely keep an eye in it if it starts spreading more or getting redder i would take her in your family doctor might not be able to be contacted but they will advice you to go in for a recheck in 2-3 days.
Avatar n tn the evening before last my toddler came down with a strange rash. We wound up taking her to the ER because it was late and the way it progressed it had us worried. The strange rash forms in red patches of skin that are warm to the touch. There are small white bumps in the rash, not like blisters, more like mosquito bite bumps. That don't seem to bother her, there's no fever. The ER Dr. said it didn't appear to be viral, nor did it appear to be a bug bite reaction or poison oak or ivy.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your response ! I've taken my toddler to the doctor once again about her palms and finger tips , they have been blotchy red (no rash) just looks like she been slapping something with both her hands (but she hasn't). One hand has been like that for about a month and the other one for about 2 weeks. They kind of look identical, when I press the really red spots in her hand they just turn yellow which is her normal palm tone . Is this at all indicative of herpes ?
