Could My Baby Be Getting Scaling Red Rashes On Her Knees Due To The Carpet
Yes: The rash could be physical irritation from the carpet. It could also be a symptom of eczema or contact dermatitis. The first thing to do is apply some thick ointment to the rash and cover with long pants. If it is itchy, you could try some Hydrocortisone cream.

Probably Not: Skin to skin contact usually doesn't cause a rash, so it is doubtful that picking up your child would cause a rash. Babies occasionally can have fungal infections under their armpits, given the moist environment. If your baby has a rash under their armpits and it is not improving, you should consult your physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 1 month old son keeps getting red bumps all over his face chest and upper arms on and off. Could this be heat rash, or can he possibly be allergic to the baby wash I use for his bath?
My 7 year old son has red itchy spots on his knees thighs and top of feet and it seems to be spreading to his stomach and bottom what is it ?

My 10 month old son has red bumps on his cheeks and when i touch them they are warm, he is teething could that be the cause?
Doubtful: While teething may cause a bit of irritability and very low grade temperature, unless the bumps are from the excessive drooling (and this is usually right around the mouth), bumps on cheeks and other places would not be attributable to teething. It may be a little heat rash, irritation from something that contacted his cheeks (detergents, soaps, perfumes, etc). Would just keep an eye on things. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Eczema on the face is relatively unusual in babies. It could be seborrheic dermatitis, an allergic reaction, a drug reaction, food allergy, or a host of other things. See your doctor, get a precise diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

The location on the cheeks & chin could also be eczema, which can also be prominant on the lower legs.Either process are usually transient & your dr can help you manage the irritation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
