Allergy: This is likely an allergic reaction from sun exposure. Should disappear on its own.

Dr. Erwin is correct, or it could be a reaction to something in the lotion,

How can I prevent ear infections in my child?

Dr. Michael Coogan
Pediatrics 48 years experience
Airway inflammation: Since ear infections begin with inflammation in the upper airway (nose and throat), parents should avoid situations that may lead to inflammation. These include, but are not limited to: cold viruses, irritants like cigarette smoke, and aeroallergens such as pollen, in certain susceptible children.
A member asked:

How many times per day should my baby eat, and how should I deal with any feeding problems?

When they are hungry: As infants you should feed your baby whenever they are hungry. Generally this is every 2-3 hours. As they get bigger they will eat more with each feeding and the time between will lengthen. But even 3 and 4 mo babies will eat every 3 hours or so during the day. Count number of wet diapers if there are not 6-8 daily see your dr. If you are concerned about any feeding problems see your dr.
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.
