After his fever subside, my 5month old baby starts to have lots of rashes all over him, will it go away or what should I apply? Calamine lotion?
Not unless allergic: Other than relieving an itch, calamine lotion should not have any effect on the skin. It would be very unusual to be allergic to calamine lotion but it is theoretically possible, so if your skin seems more irritated, red, itchy or uncomfortable after using calamine lotion, stop using it and avoid it in the future. More likely would be effects from whatever rash you were using the calamine to treat. ...Read more

USELESS: Silver sulfadiazine will not relieve you in any way. Calamine lotion is barely effective. "Poison" ivy is a violent reaction which will occur only on those allergic to it and only where the sap came on the skin. A prescription strength cortisone is very effective. Clobetasol gel or augmented betamethasone cream,. OK to wash. No special soap makes any difference. Not contagious. Will not spread. ...Read more
