Many possibilities: Pediatric rashes can be from many possible causes, including viral infections, bacterial infections, allergic reactions, and many others. Unfortunately, dermatology is a specialty that relies heavily on actually seeing and feeling the rash. Thus, providing you with a diagnosis based on a written description is impossible.

Took ibuprofen now my temp is norma for 3 days now, but now facial rash&scalp also, red itchy spots on palms of hands & soles of feet. What do I do?

Allergic reaction: If the rash appeared after taking Ibuprofen and not before, then it can be an allergic reaction to it. Some people develop hives from such medications called nsaids. You may need to take an antihistamine to help you with the rash but I would avoid all nsaids, until you are evaluated by a doctor. If you need to take something for a fever, from now on take Acetaminophen instead. ...Read more

I got 10 red spots on the back of my hand. The first time I got them was a week ago and had them twice since then only last for am hour. Not itchy?

Unusual: Fleeting nonitchy red spots may be due to transient dilatation of tiny blood vessels in the back of the hand which would be more blotchy. Hives or insect bites or allergic reactions last longer than an hour and are itchy. Did exposure to a change in temperature or something that came in contact with your hand play a role? ...Read more

Use good moisturizing cream like Aveeno (oatmeal) and you can use an over the counter steroid cream when it flares. You can use the steroid cream for five days in a row. Do not use the steroid continuously to prevent side effects. ...Read more

I have a cut on the bottom of my foot, I put a bandaid on it. Later that day I took off the bandaid. I see that there is a big red itchy spot.

Adhesive reaction: If the shape of the red, itchy spot is close to the shape of the bandaide, then this is most likely an allergic reaction to the adhesive. If you applied an ointment to the cut, it could also be a reaction to that as well. Unless your cut was dirty and not cleansed well, it is less likely to be infection developing that quickly. Blister bandages use a different adhesive and could work well. ...Read more

My daughter woke up this a.m. with a painless raised red, itchy, swollen spot on the back of her L. hand. I'm worried this may be a spider bite, help.

Mystery bites: Based on your description, this could be a spider bite (but very unlikely to be a dangerous one), or a bite from insect, flea, etc. Sometimes bumps like this represent skin infections which may NOT come from bites. If it looks bad to you now, have a doc look at it today. If looks okay now but increases in size, develops red streaks toward the wrist, or she gets new symptoms, see a doc right away ...Read more
