Newborn acne: Newborns develop baby acne around 2 weeks of age and it peaks around 6 weeks, usually gone by 12. If your baby is in this age group, it could be newborn acne. Your baby's pores are sensitive to changes in hormone levels (just like during the teen years) - so all those Estrogens they were exposed to during pregnancy are suddently gone - and boom - breakout! No treatment needed - be patient. ...Read more

Have the doc see it.: Children get so many types of rashes and skin lesions. They can be due to allergies, illness, or any number of things. Think if there have been any new foods, soaps, shampoos, detergents, etc in her life. Best is to have her pediatrician check her out to make sure that it is not a rash associated with any other type of condition. Many times, a rash's origin cannot be traced. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Eat healthy: Eat a diet with at least 80 grams of complete (animal or soy) protein every day and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits with some whole grains and perform regular exercise for good health. Don't worry about being too skinny if you have good energy and eat right. Try over-the counter acne medicines such as benzoyle peroxide or the Proactive products. If this isn't enough, see your doctor. ...Read more

My 15 month old son has red bumps on his face, tummy and back. It does not seem to bother him. He also had a fever up to 102 the last couple of days.

My 15 month old son has red bumps on his face, tummy and back. It does not seem to bother him. He also had a fever up to 102 the last couple of days.

Roseola: Sounds like he may have roseola, otherwise known as "baby measles". He is at the prime age for this. The illness usually has a couple of days of fever. The fever then breaks as the rash develops. At that point the illness is remitting and since it is caused by a virus, no need for any medicines. If he continues with fever, then likely not roseola and should see doc to check for other illnesses. ...Read more

Have been bitten by something a few places on my head. Not sure what is they have left red bumps about 2cm across. Black in middle. What is it?

Had red bumps (they don't usually have a head) on my face that come off & on for the past few years. Is there anything I could do to make it go away?

Well 1st things 1st: Red bumps could describe at least 20 different common problems so without a picture and some additional detail about the bumps and events surrounding their appearance, I can't give you a useful answer. So this is what I suggest, if you have them now, take a picture and call HealthTap prime. Or see your primary care doctor. Then after you have a diagnosis, a treatment can be recommended. Be well! ...Read more

My face randomly gets itchy and when I scratch it, it becomes red. Bumps have appeared where I scratch it, and my face seems red all over.

Hives: Sounds like mechanically (scratching) induced urticaria or hives and a phenomenon known as dermatographism. If this is new, often helpful to use a long-acting non-sedating antihistamine such as cetirizine. If ongoing (perhaps recurrent for months) or if an antihistamine does not help, then an Allergist or Dermatologist experienced in evaluating urticaria will help. Just one possibility ...Read more

Couple of options: It is hard to tell you exactly what you have based on a vague description without a picture. It sounds like it could be milia, rosacea, acne, syringomas, etc. If you're concerned, you can find a free clinic around you, although wait times for dermatology followup there might be long. You can also call a few docs and tell them your situation. A visit may be cheaper than you think. ...Read more

? folliculitis: It sounds like folliculitis, a bacterial infection of the scalp similar to acne. If you look close you may see a pustule when they first break out. They are often itchy/tender and scratched at producing a small scab. They tend to come and go. There is no permanent cure, but I often treat flares with antibiotics.
