Can I Apply Soframycin Oinment For Baby Skin Rash
Elecare and neocate and allimentium all caused skin rash and mucus in infant. What options are left to feed him?
Formula: Neutramigen, but it is similar to Alimentum. I have heard reports that sometimes using the ready to feed, not powder, helps. Have you considered that it might be soaps? There is corn in formulas, but I don't think there are any formulas without some form of corn syrup, corn maltodextrin, or corn syrup solids. An allergist may be able to see what it is. Banked breast milk might be another option. ...Read more

What are the possible causes of a yeast related skin rash in an infant? How long does it take to clear up with an ointment & is it contagious?
Part of life: Yeast is around us in the environment & by later infancy at least 5% of the dry weight of poo is yeast. The skin surface is resistant to yeast unless irritated or over hydrated (like wearing diapers). The yeast creates a rash when it takes the opportunity of a simple exposure & sets up housekeeping on irritated skin. Improvement with rx occurs within days. ...Read more

Infant had fever about 2 days up to 102.7 finally broke on day 2 but now has rash on head chest back and cries almost constantly?
Common patters: A lot of infant viral infections will have fever for a few days and end in a generalized rash. Some have names based on location and type of rash, but they are expected and rather benign. I'd consider the crying evidence it is not finished. As long as the kid takes fluids well and plays occasionally you can monitor at home. If not drinking the kid should be seen. ...Read more

What to do if I got quite red irritated skin and I just want to get skin like a babies bottom, obviously not the smell and nappy rash, as this wouldit!?
Baby skin: No, you probably don't want baby bottom skin!! Haha. Keep your skin clean, avoiding harsh soaps (including antibacterial soaps) and chemical irritants. Use SUNSCREEN!! If your skin is dry and irritated, use a good moisturizer regularly- no perfumes or colors. Don't scratch and pick at your skin. See your doctor for a regular check of your skin, especially for any moles, etc. That change. ...Read more

Which nappies are best disposable or reusable? My child has a very sensitive skin, gets rashes soon. He is just 2 months.
Individual choice: Reusable diapers work for some, but after a while you can never get the pee smell out of them and if there is no local diaper service you must work to deal with the mess. Today's disposables vary in cost and technology with a few kids allergic to components in some brands. Most are quite good and contain drying agents that pull moisture away from the skin, reducing the rash potential. ...Read more

Avoid sun exposure: Mupirocin is the ointment of choice for certain staph infections. I would not recommend applying sunscreen to an open wound or rash. You would be wise to avoid significant sun exposure to an infected wound. A dry dressing over the mupirocin application might be a better choice. ...Read more
Trust ur (kid's) doc: Candibec appears to be a combination steroid cream available in the philippines. It only works if the rash is responsive to it. While it can suppress immune response to infection, it won't get rid of infection. So your pediatrician must have a good reason to recommend it rather than antifungal or other cream. In other words, need to know cause of skin rash. Get 2nd opinion if you don't trust doc. ...Read more
Yes.: Diaper dermatitis will usually blanch when you press on it; it's a sign that the skin is inflamed, and the little tiny blood vessels in it have dilated to bring more blood to the area. The fastest treatment for diaper dermatitis is to take off the diaper. While that may mean somebody will have to follow the baby around with a pooper scooper, the rash will clear very quickly. ...Read more
Postinflammatory: It's called postinflammatory change, and it's quite common. After a rash heals, many people are left with discoloration (either lighter or darker than normal) in the involved areas. It is of no consequence, and the color will return to normal with time. A bit of cautious sun exposure will speed the process, but a baby's skin is prone to sunburn, so be very careful. ...Read more

What can cause a 1 year old child to develop alergies and rashes on its skin from mosquito bites? Does any skin cream help?
Mosquito bites: That's what mosquito's do - cause those huge local reactions, and in a rare person, even more widespread reactions. If I get a mosquito bite on my leg, it will often swell to the size of a small cup saucer. It's due to histamine release locally. Sometimes cool compresses to the area are helpful, but for such a large reaction, topical anti-itch meds probably won't do much. Could try oral benadryl, (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

Red rashes on the face and head only of 11 month old baby boy after sun exposure on the beach temporal temperature is 36.6 and very alert pls. Advise.
Sounds like sunburn: A baby gets sunburn very easily. Even on a cloudy day, it is possible to get a sunburn, because uv light penetrates through clouds. I would strongly recommend to keep babies in a shade, not directly expose to any sunlight. A baby gets sunstroke more easily than older children as well. ...Read more
I'm having an eczema allergy. Is it normal by applying moisturizer to my skin everyday? Or my skin will suffer from rashes
Eczema is not just an allergy, it is more of an atopy - it is genetic and there is a predisposition to react more to any specific allergen (more than other people). You need to keep your skin well hydrated, so yes you need to apply moisturizers daily.
When you have flare ups which are not controlled by moisturizers, you will need steroid creams to decrease the rash. ...Read more
