Very challenging...: Rash + Fever in adult patients can be due to any number of things and it is essential to know where the rash initially appeared on the body and how it looks. Causes could include bacteria, viruses, medications, auto-immune disease, and the list goes on. Evaluation should include thorough history and physical and sometimes lab testing.

Baby has a dry rash appearing in different spots on her body. How can I treat this? Is it possible that her formula could be a reason?

Baby has a dry rash appearing in different spots on her body. How can I treat this? Is it possible that her formula could be a reason?

Atopic Dermatitis: Is most likely what is happening. Formula is not usually a cause. I recommend you see her pediatrician. In the meantime, moisturizing lotions without perfume, warm not hot baths with cetaphil as cleanser. Put lotion on her before you dry her completely after bath. Her pediatrician may have you use a steroid cream but hold off on that until she is evaluated. ...Read more
