Rash (Definition)

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. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Am having eczema recurrently.Rashes under skin & itching.Can I take defcort for long.Have used betnovate & fucidin still they recur.Any stronger cream?

No: Those creams are strong enough, please don't self medicate, follow up with your doctor/dermatologist, eczema isn't just treated with topical treatment, other factors weigh in, skin care is important, triggers for exacerbations, diet, hydration and others. Potent local steriod creams can have the same deleterious effects if not used under doctor's supervision ...Read more

My three year old girl has some kind of eczema (itchy skin and rash). What kind of doctor should I take her to see to save my time and money and get best result for my girl, a pediatrician, a dermatologist, a family doctor, a hospital, or someplace else?

Pediatrician: How about starting with your child's pediatrician? He or she is likely to be very experienced in treating eczema in children as this is a very common skin problem. If your pediatrician feels it is medically necessary, he/she may subsequently refer you to a dermatologist if necessary. ...Read more

What to do if I got eczema and makes the rashes worse. is there any fake tans that are good for sensitive skin?

What to do if I got eczema and makes the rashes worse. is there any fake tans that are good for sensitive skin?

Fake tans: contain DHA or dihydroxyacetone. They don't necessarily make your eczema worse but if your eczema is active it can pick up funny in those areas of your rash. I like to mix over the counter fake tanners with gentle lotion (something you find makes your eczema better) with the tanning lotion, to reduce irritation. ...Read more

2 yr old has had a skin rash that seems like eczema since 4 mos old. Dr. Wont send to dermathologist is this right? I have tried many  ointments

Won't go away or ??: The dermatologists in my area don't file insurance but love seeing patients.If you want to see one, go.If your doctor has the condition under reasonable control (his/her definition) they may consider it a waste of your time. If this is the case s/he should tell you.If the skin barrier is maintained & secondary infections are rare, discuss with your doc & go if you decide.Should fade by 4-5 anyway. ...Read more

I'm having an eczema allergy. Is it normal by applying moisturizer to my skin everyday? Or my skin will suffer from rashes

I'm having an eczema allergy. Is it normal by applying moisturizer to my skin everyday? Or my skin will suffer from rashes

Yes: Eczema is not just an allergy, it is more of an atopy - it is genetic and there is a predisposition to react more to any specific allergen (more than other people). You need to keep your skin well hydrated, so yes you need to apply moisturizers daily. When you have flare ups which are not controlled by moisturizers, you will need steroid creams to decrease the rash. ...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?

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
