Eczema: If the rash is on the folds, it is likely to be eczema and it is not related to teething. Moisturize your child's skin regularly and see an allergist to determine what your child is allergic to.

No: Sounds more like a dermatologic or allergic problem. For the rash, call your pediatrician who may want you to see dermatologist or allergist. For teething call a pediatric dental specialist, and make sure your child has 1st dental exam by age 1. Arn't kids fun...Every day another challenge.

Not probable: A rash behind the knees and elbows sounds more like eczema. Teething will not typically cause a rash. Have your childs rash looked at by his/her pediatrician or a dermatologist.
