Rash all over baby's body?

First of all

How old is your baby? Babies , newborns get a lot of rashes on the face, neck, chest and at times all over the body! This cause a lot of anxiety on the parents and most of these rashes are harmless. They do tend to get worst before they get better or totally resolved on their own through time.most common are seborrheic dermatitis, heat rashes, newborn acne, erythema toxicum, dry skin, milk bumps.

Toddler with rashes that comes and goes. Is this serious? Rashes (red with small white bumps) all over the body (usually on baby's legs) and face that comes and goes, lasting for about 30 minutes or even less. Does not seem to bother my 1 year old but I n

You

You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit.

Horrible skin rash all over my body. What could this be?

Hard to tell

Rash
without looking at the rash, and taking a full history of what you have taken or eaten or used on your skin recently, it is hard to tell what it could be. See a doctor for proper work up and diagnosis.

From adderall to the XR 20mg on Wednesday. 4 days ago. 24 hours now I have been getting dizzy spells and a lobster red skin rash, all over my body?!

Go to the ER.

Dermatitis
Sounds like an allergic reaction. Your blood pressure may also be elevated. It is best to go to the ER and have yourself evaluated.

Rashes on 2 months old baby's palm, face,feet,stomach, back ,etc n cradle cap?

Seborrhea

Cradle_cap
Seborrhea is another name for cradle cap. In addition to the scaly places on the scalp there are little red bumps on the trunk and head. The bumps are very fine and reddish. you could check Google Images for seborrhea to see if it looks like what your child has. talk to your pediatrician about treatments. sometimes a mild steroid such as cortisone is used. sometimes an anti fungal such as Lotrimin

I frequently change my baby's diaper. Why is he still getting rashes on his groin?

Could be yeast

Rash
If your baby has a persistent, red rash involving the skinfolds that does not improve with frequent diaper changes, or diaper rash cream, it could be a yeast infection. Yeast normally live on the body, but like to grow where the skin remains moist. If your baby is not having pain, your doctor may recommend an OTC anti-fungal cream. Another possibility is allergy to the diaper; try changing brands.

Dr. Mika Hiramatsu answered:

what are tha causes of fungal rash on my baby's diaper area? how would i know its a fungal rash compared to ordinary rashes

Red and itchy

Rash
Everyone has yeast that lives on the skin. But yeast particularly likes places that are damp and moist - like under a diaper. Keeping the skin cool and dry will help. You can also try an over-the-counter antifungal like clotrimazole cream 3 times a day and see if that works. Yeast rashes are usually very red, itchy, and spread with "satellite" small red bumps away from the rash center. Good luck.
