Fungal: Sounds like you have a fungal skin infection. See your doctor to get prescription for anti-fungal cream or powder. ...Read more
Keep cooler: Heat rash usually resolves in a few days unless you continue to sweat too much. So dress in cooler clothes or remove a layer of clothes, blankets, etc. Try not to use any topical creams or ointments that can also hold in heat. Keep cooler and the rash should go away on its own. Cool water will feel good on the rash. Solarcaine gel would help with comfort also. ...Read more
Not really: You could try it. It will be soothing. You may have to wait until the rash heals on its own. ...Read more
Can I apply aqueous calamine on my 1 year old baby when he gets urticaria or when he gets heat rash? Need him to stop scratching.
Not recommended: For itching from heat rash, the best thing to do is prevent it by keeping him cool and dry. Put him in light clothing and avoid overheating when possible (avoid car rides in the heat of the day). For the urticaria, your doctor may be able to help figure out what is causing the hives. Calamine is not very helpful. For itching due to insect bites, I like caladryl clear best. ...Read more

What works better than calamine lotion or cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream for poison ivy rashes?
I gave my 3yo calamine lotion & 3/4 tsp. Of benedryl for a rash (poss. Flea attack) that is all over her. Can I put hyrdocortizone on it as well?
For poison ivy?: Since it is summer, & guessing by the way you phrase your question, you are asking what is the best way to treat allergic contact dermatitis. Calamine is not harmful, and may reduce the itch somewhat. I haven't found it helpful personally or professionally. Since rhus dermatitis is hypersensitivity, I'd go for topical steroids until the itching stops. Hydrocortisone or a little stronger (not face) ...Read more

Can I use 1% silver sulfadiazine cream of poison izy rash? If so, do I continue to use calamine lotion?
USELESS: Silver sulfadiazine will not relieve you in any way. Calamine lotion is barely effective. "Poison" ivy is a violent reaction which will occur only on those allergic to it and only where the sap came on the skin. A prescription strength cortisone is very effective. Clobetasol gel or augmented betamethasone cream, . OK to wash. No special soap makes any difference. Not contagious. Will not spread. ...Read more

What is better for a 1 year old calamine lotion or aveeno (oatmeal) anti itch cream. She has a rash/ hives that peak from time to time. How often is it ok to ap?
Avoid calamine: I find this too drying and often aggravates the process. Nothing you put on hives will affect their outcome, it is deep in the skin and triggered by some immune/allergic process. Aveeno (oatmeal) baths help with the itching and a long term antihistamine like zyrtec may help. ...Read more
