Cortisone cream: You can try a Hydrocortisone cream. If that does not help, see a dermatologist.

A member asked:

Can I bathe my baby when he has tender skin spots on his hands and feet, etc?

Yes: It is ok to bathe your baby, even with tender spots or a rash. However if your baby seems really uncomfortable you may want to make an appointment with your pediatrician. Remember babies do not need a bath every day- this could dry out their skin and make it prone to peeling or increased tenderness. Instead, bathe every 2-4 days.

Lately i've had skin rashes and itchiness. Should I use calamine lotion or aloe?

Either: Either may help with symptoms. Hydrocortisone cream which is available over-the-counter may both relieve the symptoms and help get rid of the rash. Antihistamines like claritin, zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will also help for both.

Does low blood pressure and low sugar go hand in hand what causes low blood pressure and low blood sugar?

A Few Things: Low blood sugar and low blood pressure can be seen together in patients with sepsis, an addisonian crisis, some other things. The 2 don't necessarily go hand in hand. People with diabetes and other metabolic conditions will often have low blood sugar, but normal blood pressure. There are other conditions where blood pressure is low and sugars are normal like pots, etc.
