Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash. Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash.

Itchy rash on inner thigh only at night, what could this be?

Fungal, tinea cruris: Good evening, itchy rash on the inner thigh could be due to a fungal infection, tinea cruris, especially in a heavy-set person. There is no precise reason why it should appear only at night; probably, we are too busy during the daytime to pay attention to it. If it is due to a fungal infection, it may need specific creams to make it go away. Over-the-counter creams, though helpful, see a doctor. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

May be fungi: Definitely may be a fungus but may also be xerosis (a very fancy name for dry skin). See a dermatologist who can perform a KOH test. You will hardly feel anything and can rule out a fungus almost immediately. ...Read more

No.: There are characteristic hallmarks of hiv, but "itchy rash" is not one of them. Most common causes would be virus, drug reaction, and allergy to something you came in contact with or ingested. Let a dermatologist evaluate you and tell you for sure. ...Read more
