My 9 year old son has a rash on his right wrist and left elbow bend. It came on then subsided. It is back. It is very itchy.

My 9 year old son has a rash on his right wrist and left elbow bend. It came on then subsided. It is back. It is very itchy.

Eczema possibly: Due to location and itching and on and off most likely eczema, but hard to tell without seeing it. I suggested making a consult and we can help you. In general for eczema use fragrance free products (detergents, shampoo, soap), no softeners, use moisturizer every day (fragrance free) and a steroid cream can help on the patch that is worse, but I would suggest a consult to verify it is eczema.

My 1 year old has rash on face and under chin, it's red spotted and itchy under chin. Going around to side of ears! Should I be concerned?

M.D. visit/skin care: In addition to eczema, it may be related to contact with a product or plant oil that triggers a reaction. I would suggest the use of a hypoallergenic soap such as white dove and eucerin cream, avoiding hot water and rubbing the area, until your physician sees him. Read more

Benzoyl peroxide makes my 12 Year old daughter break out in a red itchy rash and makes her face worse. Salicylic acid doesn't work for her.

Benzoyl peroxide makes my 12 Year old daughter break out in a red itchy rash and makes her face worse. Salicylic acid doesn't work for her.

Too much too often: Benzoyl peroxide comes as 5% and 10%. The vehicle can also be a gel (most potent) to lotion to cream (least potent). It also doesn't have to be put on every day or twice a day. If it is irritating her skin tell her to hold back on the throttle, both in the formulation and the frequency. Acne is almost a right of passage of teenage hood and she will get through it as you and her mom did! Read more

My 18 month old son has a rash on the right side of his head/forehead. It's a little itchy to him but it doesn't hurt. I'm not sure what it is?

My 18 month old son has a rash on the right side of his head/forehead. It's a little itchy to him but it doesn't hurt. I'm not sure what it is?

A localized rash on: One side of the head is most consistent with a contact allergic rash or dermatitis, especially if it is itchy. To confirm, a photo or exam is most helpful. Those usually clear in a week or so, but in the meantime, topical creams for itching, which can include hydrocortisone cream, may be helpful. A fungal infection, ringworm, is usually coin shaped, and impetigo is moist and crusty. Read more

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

Unlikely: Usually, as you are I think surmising, the Lamictal rash comes on when you have begun this medication. It can be localized on the face alone, but usually it is more diffuse on the body. Again, it typically comes within weeks (not years) of administration. However, given the potential seriousness of rashes with the drug, I would get checked out with a dermatologist as soon as you can. Read more

Penicillin mold?: Penicillin mold has been known to grow on cheese. See a physician to make sure that the rash is not a penicillin allergy rash. Take some of the old cheese with you. Read more

2 and 4 yr old siblings always have rash on face/body. Usually cheeks/limbs, top of feet. Worse w/heat and sun. Raised, red, warm, blotchy, not itchy

Based on D history: You've given, heat rash is the primary consideration. It could be from skin sensitivity to the sun or from blood vessels opening up with increased blood flow after sun exposure. Get them checked also for allergic, atopic and contact dermatitis. Best wishes! . http://www. M.webmd. Com/children/skin-rashes-in-children-treatment. Read more

My 1 yr. Old has developed an itchy rash on his face...Cheeks, forhead, nose, behind and on the ears...Looks like red splotches. No fever, diarrhea.?

My 1 yr. Old has developed an itchy rash on his face...Cheeks, forhead, nose, behind and on the ears...Looks like red splotches. No fever, diarrhea.?

Allergy?: If he is acting ok no fever drinking eating etc it sounds like hives. They are typically blotches they might come and go affect different parts of the body etc. Think about new foods, possibly just changed to milk, think of new soaps detergents, fabric softness something new in 24 to 48 hours before the rash. If he starts not acting well, develops a fever, or no resolution in a few days see ur dr. Read more

I have rashes on my face and they are scaly and itchy. I used Biocoten onthem andthey disappeared but when I stopped. They came back. What should I do?

See your doctor: You need to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment. You will need to discuss what causes it, if there is a cure versus chronic treatment and what products to be using. Often if you know what triggers the rashes it can help you get better control. Hope you feel and look better soon. Read more
