My 8 month has a round red rash on her right cheek, is it eczema or ring worm? It doesn't seem to bother her and gives away with cortisone lotion

Likely not ringworm: Skin rashes are common in infants & a single patch of rash can be a lot of things.From drool rash to ringworm to allergic reaction, etc. If it improves with hydrocortizone it is probably not ringworm. It doesn't sound worrisome at this point so you can bring it up with your pcp at the next scheduled visit. ...Read more

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.

Hello,
My 2 month old baby has small pimply rashes /red rashes all over her body. How do i know if its eczema or erythrema toxicum?

May be neither: Erythema toxicum should be long gone by now as your baby is already 2 months old, stays for a week or two after birth, whether it is eczema? Yet to be examined, kindly see your baby's doctor if the rash is really bothersome, enjoy your baby ...Read more

Can fluid come out of eczema.The skin is red with rashes that look like blisters,Itching at times but have sugar.All this after a cut.on antib & cream?

A qualified yes: If you meant atopic dermatitis then the answer is unusual. If you meant contact dermatitis , then the answer is often yes. I suspect that you might have used neosporin (or equivalent) OTC ointment on the wound site and have developed a contact allergy to one of the ingredients (neomycin). Try topical HC cream and stop the antibiotic ointment. If problem persists , see your doctor. ...Read more

Doctor can examine: Rashes can be hard to describe or diagnose without seeing them. A primary care or a dermatology doctor can look at it in order to tell what it is. If a dry skin or eczema rash, hydrocortisone cream helps. Some rashes are an allergy to something. Hydrocortisone also helps allergic rashes. Bacterial or fungal rashes benefit from antimicrobials. If it doesn't go away, a dermatologist can take a look. ...Read more
