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.

What could be causing swelling, aching, itching, and throbbing in my hands and ankle? Could it be gout? What else? This has been happening for about 2 weeks. Its never happened before. I don't know if it might be connected but i also have been having rash

But to answer your specific question, no this is not a typical presentation for gout. An acute gout attack will typically affect a joint producing symptoms very much like an infection i.E swelling, redness, warmth and tenderness. But not itching and not rashes and not in the seperate locations you describe. Best of luck. ...Read more
