Toddler rash spots

Common Questions and Answers about Toddler rash spots


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?1303750620 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!
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.
171768 tn?1324230099 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).
1714912 tn?1308691554 t really look like typical cafe au lait spots ( I have never heard of those spots before this btw) Well I always thought birthmarks were just fine considering I have like 3 birthmarks and tons of freckles. Well I was bored waiting on our vehicle to get done at the shop and I looked up todder has a few tan colored birthmarks.
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 ?
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.
280369 tn?1316702041 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 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 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 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?
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 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 n tn toddler has raised,red bumps with small,white heads on extremedies, they itch and appear to be insect bites.
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 n tn I noticed under his skin about 1/3 up his penis white spots 3D that look like fat deposits. These spots do not move with skin and you can feel them as harder bumps. Is that something we should worry about?
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 f tn An elderly friend has recently developed multiple spots over both breasts. The spots are freckle size and bluish grey color (similar to little bruises). They are flat/smooth discolorations and do not pain or itch. Is this a concern?
