Steroid creams help : The rash sounds like an immune response.One can get these even as a stress response. The judicious use of an over the counter steroid cream may help eliminate the rash. An evaluation by an allergist will probably help you find the etiology of the rash. ...Read more

4 mo. Baby has rash behind ear. Raw, red and oozing sticky clear liquid.  Rash on face too.  What should I use on it?  Eczema? Has cradle cap too.

Like this? : Seborrheic dermatitis ("cradle cap") can spread to the face, eyelashes ; behind ears. It can be treated by using z-tar or other anti-dandruff shampoo. Lather up a fingertip's worth, shampoo ; rinse thoroughly. If the scalp is red for more than a few moments, discontinue use. If it looks infected or is very itchy, see her pediatrician for other treatments (miconazole or mild hc creams). ...Read more

Hi my gp said had roscea due to red face burning rozex topical cream burns using exzema cream oilatum and lots better could my gp of got wrong?

Possible: No one can be right all the time and some times one needs to see how a patient responds to medication trial to reach the right diagnosis. Your gp might not have been wrong however since there is a chance that you might have had an irritant or allergic reaction to one of the ingredients in the topical cream. If oilatum helped, then the problem is dry skin but you may still have rosacea. ...Read more

Have sensitive and slightly red skin on my cheeks after using 0.2% betamethasone valerate cream on face to get rid of an excezma like break out ?

Have sensitive and slightly red skin on my cheeks after using 0.2% betamethasone valerate cream on face to get rid of  an excezma like break out      ?

Stop using it.: Betamethasone is a strong steroid cream that should not be used on the face. Short-term it will cause sensitivity such as what you experienced; long-term it can cause "rebounds", where the rash comes back with a vengeance when you stop using it, or even rosacea. Try an otc Hydrocortisone cream to get rid of the rash, and if that doesn't work, see a dermatologist. ...Read more
