Breastfed 3 month old has eczema, gas and occasional diaper rash. No dairy has helped but he still has episodes. What else should I eliminate?

Family Hx?: Many times eczema is a form of hereditary dry skin in an infant with a family history of allergies etc, so look at family history of allergies, asthma and /or itchy dry skin. Also do not overlook the environment. Are the pollens in the air he is exposed to? What are you using to launder clothing and bed linens? What are you bathing with, and what lotions do you use? ...Read more

My two year old's penis is swollen and very red! it hurts him to pull it back and clean it. I've put diaper rash cream. No change. What else can I do?

Don't pull it back: Now requires neosporin or Bacitracin oinment.May need some oral antibiotics if it does not respond quickly.Parents should not pull back, baby's, toddlers or little boys foreskins.Foreskin was designed to protect the penile glans & not retracted early. Retraction should wait until a boy is old enough to do it himself. U may have been given incorrect advice by a circumcised dr or well-meaning nurse. ...Read more

Is : Is she complaining of her anus itching? If so, the most common reason for her discomfort with a history of constipation is a small tear in her anus which may be more internal, thus not visible. Treatment for this involves sitz baths and fixing her constipation. Let her splash around in the tub for 10-20 minutes 2-3 times a day. Adding a few tablespoons of baking soda to the water can help, too. Also, treating her constipation effectively to prevent re-tearing of the fissure is very important. Making sure eats plenty of fruits and veggies for fiber and drinks plenty of fluids can help. She may need a laxative for a short while to keep her stools soft while she heals - you should contact her doctor about this. If her discomfort does not resolve over the next few weeks, you should also call her doctor. They may want to examine her to make sure she is not having another reason for her discomfort. Good luck! ...Read more

My 2 year old daughter has a bad diaper rash. But she is in underwear.. how and why is this happening and what to do about it?

If she is wearing a: diaper or pull-up at night, that could cause a rash. If she is having urinary accidents in her underwear, it could do the same. If not, she may be reacting to new underwear or a soap or detergent. Please have her doctor examine her and the rash, to determine the cause and treat it properly. ...Read more

Buttock rash and thigh rash. Its itchy especially at night. Originally I thought it was scabies but it is only on the two areas. Also have eczema.

?

Need to see rash: Without visualization, it is nearly impossible to diagnose a rash. Given the locations you are describing, scabies does not seem to be the most likely answer. Two discrete patches that itch on someone with eczema sounds like an eczema flare, but see your physician for a formal diagnosis and treatment plan. ...Read more

My 2 yr old has a diaper rash n she hates the over the count creams. What else can I use?

Vaseline: It is the best skin fixer-upper there is. It blocks moisture from causing skin breakdown, allowing the skin to heal. It also doesn't cause pain when applied, and will help with chafing. It's ok to use even when there isn't skin irritation. Good luck! ...Read more

My 2&1/2 yr old grandson has a pretty bad diaper rash he's in a lot of pain however he will not and never has let us give him OTC children's liquid ty?

Diaper rash: Please try a diaper rash cream such as Triple paste, and leave his diaper off as often as is practical to allow the skin to be free of moisture. If the rash is very very red, you should take him to the pediatrician to see if it is Candida and requires a medicated diaper cream ...Read more

My 1 year old daughter has horrible diaper rash  bleeding slightly.  She never sits in wet diapers & it seems to get worse after bm's.  What's going on?

Diaper rash: Some diaper rashes may actually be a yeast infection that reponds better to prescription treatment.

9 year old has almost like diaper rash on inside of bottom cheek...Been using a&d but still there. She uses flushable wipes to wipe after bowel moment?

9 year old has almost like diaper rash on inside of bottom cheek...Been using a&d but still there. She uses flushable wipes to wipe after bowel moment?

Avoid wipes: Wipes do not necessarily "clean" your bottom and the chemicals may irritate the skin. Try a tub bath and plain dove soap. Rinse very well. Keep the area dry, use only cotton underwear. If it is itchy it may be yeast and you could try anti fungal creams. Be careful it does not look infected, it is "honey crusting" or developing areas that look pus filled, if that is the case see your doc asap. ...Read more

It's been a week my 2 and half year old have a stuffy runny nose and breathing through mouth ... he also have bad diaper rash kindly advice ?

It's been a week my 2 and half year old have a stuffy runny nose and breathing through mouth ... he also have bad diaper rash kindly advice ?

Conservative therapy: The nasal symptoms and diaper rash are probably unrelated. If the runny nose is clear, then this is most likely of viral or allergic origin--so simple saline rinses can prove of usefulness. Also, an OTC antihistamine such as Allegra might be worth a try--especially if allergies are suspected. As to the severe diaper rash, this probably needs evaluation by your pediatrician, as may require oral RXs ...Read more

7m old low grade fever of 101.5 (day)103 (night).Two red spots on his cheek and sore on the roof of his mouth has a bit of diaper rash?  Cause?

Hand foot, mouth dis: Hand foot and mouth disease is most likely. Causing sores on the palate, around the mouth, in the diaper area, and hands and feet, they look like red spots or canker sores (white discs with red around them). Fever and pain are possible. It's viral and runs its course. Pain control is key. If this doesn't sound like what your child has, get it checked. ...Read more

My three year old girl has some kind of eczema (itchy skin and rash). What kind of doctor should I take her to see to save my time and money and get best result for my girl, a pediatrician, a dermatologist, a family doctor, a hospital, or someplace else?

Pediatrician: How about starting with your child's pediatrician? He or she is likely to be very experienced in treating eczema in children as this is a very common skin problem. If your pediatrician feels it is medically necessary, he/she may subsequently refer you to a dermatologist if necessary. ...Read more
