See dermatologist: Antihistamine is not going do anything for this type of rash especially when burning and not itching is the issue. A dermatology consult would be your best bet.

Nether do I: Go see your pediatrician and get your son examined and treated appropriately. And do this soon. The eye is nothing to fool around with or to delay in management.

Doc, what is the common cause for very warm groin & underarms with rashes developing on these areas? No fever encountered nor enlarged lymph nodes

Yeast infection: Hi Edward, Candida yeast infection on intertriginous areas such as groin underarm can cause rash, esp If those are always moist, if due to ur job or other causes prevalent at warm climate. Since you said it is also warm, pls see a dermatologist Or private MD if you have other underlying conditions such as diabetes etc Whc may predispose. If infection, these are readily treated.

Can chronic fatigue cause abnormal gait (weak legs), low grade fevers, itchy rashes on upper chest and back, and patches of goose bumps come and go?

Chronic fatigue: Chronic fatigue can arise from many sources - not the least of which is not sleeping soundly. Have your doctor refer you for a sleep study. If that turns out OK a consult with a neurologist will evaluate your abnormal (weak) gait would be my next choice for you.

What might be the cause of fine rash on face after having fever for two days? She is 21 years old. Tnx.

What might be the cause of fine rash on face after having fever for two days? She is 21 years old. Tnx.

Rule out strep: Fever followed by a fine rash could be due to strep & is called scarlet fever. Get seen today for evaluation. If a rapid strep test is done & is negative, ask for a throat culture to confirm. Rapid strep tests can have false negatives 1 to 3 out of 10 times and miss a lot of strep when negative results are not confirmed. If she should get worse, shortness of breath, severe headache, etc. To ER.

What would cause high lft and wbc accompanied by high fever and rash?

YouNeedCloseFollowUp: A lotta things that could affect your liver.Did you ask whomever ordered the tests? What did they say?? Did they check for hepatitis? That's the first thing to think with what you've described. In that case you need to be told what to do and, as important, what not to do. Oh! I see you're 9--this requires scrutiny by a competent internist. Meanwhile don't share any intimate objects like eating utensils

28 mo old had bad rash that caused to hold her stool from pain & even after rash is gone still holding stool. She's dev'd fever twice. What's causing?

Reassurance: Reassurance and time will change things around. She's had a bad experience, and since the rash and the burning are no longer present, she will regain confidence again. Make sure you provide extra fiber (add fiber powder to her juice), and extra water, to make sure her stools are soft, and she does not develop constipation. The fever episodes are most likely unrelated.

Itching: On many occasions no reason can be found despite extensive work up, you didn't mention how old is your daughter though? At any rate, skin care, moisturizers, antihistamines, if prescribed, take regularly, and keep the follow up, watch if you have pets, stuffed toys, etc., see another allergist for a second opinion if you wish, it's your right

Itching: Have you had her evaluated by her pediatrician or FP for other things besides allergies? For instance is she under any stressors at home, at school, any friends move, pets die or anything like that? . Is she acting out, personality changes? Sometimes internal symptoms can be signs of other things in this age group.
