What could cause rashes on the forehead of the toddler?

What could cause rashes on the forehead of the toddler?

Umm, hard to say.: Skin rashes are most difficult to diagnose without actually examining them. Where is it? Is it crusted? Is it spreading rapidly? Are there satellite lesions? What creams have you already tried? Heat and irritant rashes are common. Perhaps it would be wiser to have your pediatrician or dermatologist examine this. Then specific treatment and preventive measures could be discussed with more accuracy.

Can teething cause a rash on my 9 month olds face and forehead?

Can teething cause a rash on my 9 month olds face and forehead?

Possibly: If your baby is constantly drooling the skin can become irritated and red around the mouth and chin. If the child runs at it the irritation becomes more angry. Drooling is almost always associated with teething, rashes not always. Forehead rashes are not associated with teething and come from some other cause.

Get tested: As I stated earlier, symptoms of HIV are too variable to be relied on for diagnosis. HIV does not cause acne, however, if you have any doubt, get tested.

Forehead rash that looks like heat rash, took ibuprofen, rash became numb and tight, caused a horrible head ache where the rash is. Sun makes it worse?

There are few rashes: ..that are truly painful. The most common ones are shingles and cold sores. Shingles occur only on one side of the body. Cold sores usually occur on lips & mucous membranes but CAN erupt on normal skin. Since early diagnosis and treatment can shorten the duration and severity of both, medical care is recommended.

Hi im tasha I recently started getting small red bumps that look as if there rashes on my face by my forehead and cheek area and it's itchy.

Facial rash: Small red bumps on face typically represent a rash. Rashes can be caused by many things such a virus, food allergies, contact allergies and more. If it persists for more than several days I recommend dermatology evaluation. Try to pinpoint what may have caused the rash. Topical corticosteroid creams may help

My 1year and six months son has swellings on the head and a red rash like on the buttoms. What may be the cause?

See Your Doctor: From the description there are possibly two separate problems. "Swellings on the head" could have several causes starting with bug bites and much more. The same is true for the rash on "bottom". There is not enough information given fo formulate a cause. Additionally diagnosing skin conditions without visual inspection is challenging. See your doctor for correct diagnosis and treatment.
