No rash with lice: Lice don't cause a rash. You may have a reaction to the anti-lice treatment, or may have something like scalp fungus or something totally different. Best bet is to get examined by a healthcare provider. ...Read more

My 1year and six months son has swellings on the head and a red rash like on the buttoms. What may be the cause?

See Your Doctor: From the description there are possibly two separate problems. "Swellings on the head" could have several causes starting with bug bites and much more. The same is true for the rash on "bottom". There is not enough information given fo formulate a cause. Additionally diagnosing skin conditions without visual inspection is challenging.

My 18 month old son has a rash on the right side of his head/forehead. It's a little itchy to him but it doesn't hurt. I'm not sure what it is?

My 18 month old son has a rash on the right side of his head/forehead. It's a little itchy to him but it doesn't hurt. I'm not sure what it is?

A localized rash on: One side of the head is most consistent with a contact allergic rash or dermatitis, especially if it is itchy. To confirm, a photo or exam is most helpful. Those usually clear in a week or so, but in the meantime, topical creams for itching, which can include hydrocortisone cream, may be helpful. A fungal infection, ringworm, is usually coin shaped, and impetigo is moist and crusty. ...Read more

My son has had a rash from head to toe for 24 hrs and benedril isn't working. Shouls I take him to the hospital because it says he shouldn't have more than 6 doses in 24 hoyrs?

If well, wait: If the child is otherwise well, has not been on medication, is eating and drinking and playing, wait. It most likely is a viral exanthem (rash). Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is useless against viral rashes or viral infections. Is the child itchy or showing signs of an allergic reaction? Those would be uses for Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or other antihistamine. ...Read more

Hello. My son (20 months) developed a rash from hand, foot, mouth virus. Is there anything I can use to ease the irritation of his skin?

Keep it clean: Healing can progress faster when you keep the areas clean. Sweat will leave behind salt which causes itching and common skin germs can enter and trigger secondary infections. If you clean the areas often with an antibacterial soap and monitor the sites, it should heal well. Consult your doc if you find areas that appear suspicious. ...Read more

Need help my daughter was diagnosed with an infection caused by licking her lips but the rash keeps coming back?

This sounds like: An irritation now and not an infection. Usually a 1% hydrocortisone cream applied 2-3 x/day can help. Depending on where you are, sometimes a lip balm containing that can help. Vaseline as a barrier can also help. If it is not improving, please see her doctor. ...Read more

My head is itchy lots! I found 1 dead bug combing through my thick curly long hair. It was long and skinny. I have a rash on the neck. What bug?

Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www. Ridlice. Com/lice-killing-shampoo. Php), AND you need to properly wash and/or dispose of linens, stuffed animals, blankets, etc. ...Read more
