Heat Rash On Front Of Neck
My baby is a month and a half and i notice a red line on her neck and i think its a heat rash can u help me?
Neck rashes: Neck rashes are common in infants. Until their necks elongate with growth, the chin folds trap moisture (formula, spit ups, sweat), which causes the skin to break down and be prone to rashes. Applying cornstarch to the area regularly to absorb moisture may help, but fungal infections are frequent in this area and might require prescription medication in the form of an antifungal powder or cream. ...Read more

2 month old had a heat rash to neck 1 month ago. Enlarged lymph node appeared. Now new one appeared to other side-occipital? When worry lymphoma?
Infant lymph nodes: Hello. The enlarged node is most likely unrelated to the heat rash your infant had 1 month ago. Occipital nodes are more noticeable in infants because their skin is thinner. The nodes should be "rubbery" in feel and move easily. Most common reasons for enlargement would be a scalp rash like "cradle cap." You can get the nodes checked by the pediatrician, but they are probably normal. ...Read more

You may need to see a dermatologsit and have the cyst removed and then take a 10 day course of oral antibiotics ...Read more
I think I got a heat rash on my neck from the heat a few days ago. The bumps are either red or look like whiteheads and are super itchy What can I do?
Heat Rash: A heat rash is usually red and non itchy. It often resolves with a cool compress and getting out of the heat. The fact that the rash is persisting and contains whit bumps suggests you were in contact with something you may be sensitive to.

Tiny raised bumps on my forehead and neck, little itching. My trunk and back look like a small heat rash typically at night. Is this hives?
Hives: A hive lesion does not last for more than 24 hours. If those raised itchy bumps on your skin move from one place to another within a day, they sound like hives. When you don't have lung or GI symptoms, simple otc antihistamine would help in most cases. If you have hives more than 6 weeks, you need to see a physician to be evaluated for chronic hives or chronic urticaria. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
