Toddler rash spreading

Common Questions and Answers about Toddler rash spreading


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...
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.
Avatar f tn Can you elaborate on the rash? The rash could be due to infection or skin conditions such as dermatitis or eczema. Infection may be attributed to bacterial, yeast or fungal causes. Superficial candidal skin infections may appear in areas which are warm and moist including the axilla, neck or groin. These rashes may appear as a red flat rash with sharp scalloped edges with smaller patches called "satellite lesions" nearby.
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 n tn t really itch but the rash itself kinda burns. it looks somewhat like a heat rash but more red and swollen. the large welts have not gotten any better and the rash is helped with OTC benadryl but stays and gets worse when no benadryl is taken. we went to the urgent care center because about a year ago he had a severe staph infection and was treated pretty easily with an antibiotic injection (rocephin??). at this visit they said it was folliculitis and tinea something (ringworm). the dr.
152264 tn?1280354657 About three weeks ago, preceded by a couple of weeks of itching, I noticed a red rash on my right lower back which looks like shingles. It's itchy, NOT painful, no real fluid-y blisters, but it's somewhat bumpy. I am pretty sure it's shingles, and via e-mail description my doctor thinks so too (I didn't go see her because it doesn't hurt). It started out maybe 2 inches high and 4 inches wide (guesstimate).

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 So I've had a rash spreading for about 2 weeks now. It originally started with minor bumps on my underwear lining.Heat and sweat made the skin more irritated and helped it spread. I'd compulsively scratch whenever drifting in sleep. Some bumps have started to scar and become scaley. About a week later a rash started appearing on my neck. I recall waking up drenched in sweat and a minor itch on my neck. I mildly touched it throughout the next couple days without any noticeable changes.
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 Hello, It can be due to atopic dermatitis, eczema, heat rash or fungal infection if it is spreading. The treatment for all of these is entirely different. I suggest you to get an evaluation and a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done to confirm the diagnosis for any fungal infection. Biopsy skin can also be done. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn toddler has raised,red bumps with small,white heads on extremedies, they itch and appear to be insect bites.
Avatar f tn just now I noticed that ive developed a small patch on the left side of my lower back. Is the rash just going to keep spreading? If so, when will it stop spreading? and can I spread it to other parts of my body, for example if I touch the rash on my leg and then happen to touch my arm will the rash then appear on my arm also?
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 Hi, from what you describe, you could not infect the baby. First the sore was dried so no active surface virus, second you put cream on you finger, third was an hour time delay so any virus there would die, forth you used the baby wipes on your fingers also used diaper rash cream on you fingers and hsv1 does not prefer the genital area. Hsv really needs direct contact to expose like hard rubbing kissing with an active sore or genital to genital contact.
Avatar f tn ve ever experienced) started 5 days before the rash started, I was misdiagnosed at my first ER visit. I am 21 days into the rash, and both the rash and the pain have lessened in intensity. When it lets me sleep, the pain usually wakes me at 4:00am. I started a altered and Gabapentin the day after the rash appeared (my 2nd ER visit). My outbreak is along my right rib age, from my spine to the middle of my stomach.
