Different Types Of Baby Rashes
Usually won't matter: Recurrent rashes on the arms and legs of babies are often eczema, which appears as reddened, rough, dry skin areas. On severe eczema areas, the skin will get tiny cracks that ooze moisture. Changing the laundry detergent usually doesn't make a difference in the rash, but parents can try using no detergent for 2-3 weeks and see if the rash resolves (just wash the laundry with hot or warm water). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

Baby has a dry rash appearing in different spots on her body. How can I treat this? Is it possible that her formula could be a reason?
Atopic Dermatitis: is most likely what is happening. Formula is not usually a cause. I recommend you see her pediatrician. In the meantime, moisturizing lotions without perfume, warm not hot baths with cetaphil as cleanser. Put lotion on her before you dry her completely after bath. Her pediatrician may have you use a steroid cream but hold off on that until she is evaluated. ...Read more

My baby started breaking out with acne type symtoms and she is 2 yr. Red small rash bumps all of a sudden?
Doctor can check: A healthy 2 yr old toddler won't just break out in an acne rash for no reason, especially since he is much to young for real acne. So, the question becomes: is it a viral rash (like hand-foot-mouth disease), is it a skin infection (like folliculitis), or is it an allergic or drug reaction? To figure this out, a doctor will have to look at the rash. Meanwhile, if itchy, some oral Benadryl can help. ...Read more
My baby girl has a rash type irritation on her vagina. But now I notice white dots all over. She doesn't seem bothered by it. Tried coconut oil.
Maybe sensitive skin: Some babies have much more sensitive skin than others. For those babies, i recommend a mild, unscented baby wash (such as aveeno baby or cetaphil). If your baby's skin is dry or prone to eczema, try a mild lotion (cetaphil, eucerin, and aveeno are my favorites). Sometimes more severe rash can be do to a food allergy (even if your are breastfeeding) or an infection, so check with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Baby acne is felt to be triggered by high level of maternal hormone levels that sustained the pregnancy & prepaired for breast feeding. Clamping the cord cuts off new hormone input, but leaving the wet spa of pregnancy puts baby in contact with skin irritants and germs. The process accelerates for a while before peaking & the intensity varies. Eventually the hormones & acne are gone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
