Newborn rash: Your newborn might also be at risk of eczema. But this is not so scary if you start prevention early and you follow up with the pediatrician and dermatologist as recommended. Use unscented shampoo and soap and them infrequently. Use neutral skin oil and do not start early feeding with solid food, wait until 6 mo of age to prevent food allergy that would worsen eczema. ...Read more

Infant had fever about 2 days up to 102.7 finally broke on day 2 but now has rash on head chest back and cries almost constantly?

Common patters: A lot of infant viral infections will have fever for a few days and end in a generalized rash. Some have names based on location and type of rash, but they are expected and rather benign. I'd consider the crying evidence it is not finished. As long as the kid takes fluids well and plays occasionally you can monitor at home. If not drinking the kid should be seen. ...Read more

My baby face has rashes for weeks now, and now its dry, what could cause this and what can I do to prevent this? She's 1 1/2 month now..

Could be normal: Babies this age can get a rash that is called neonatal acne. And well, it looks like small acne lesions. It is caused by hormonal changes and usually resolves on its own. If there is any family history of eczema, it could be the start of this, and it feels like patchy or it could be something you are applying to your baby's skin that she is reacting to. See the baby's doc to make sure. ...Read more

Eczema in babies: It is increasingly recognized that eczema/atopic dermatitis in infants is a manifestation of a food allergy. If mild, addressing the skin barrier with mild topical medication is all that is necessary. If it is more severe or affects large areas of the body, allergy testing by blood and/or skin is recommended. Babies can develop other rash conditions that have nothing to do with allergies as well. ...Read more

Red rashes on the face and head only of 11 month old baby boy after sun exposure on the beach temporal temperature is 36.6 and very alert pls. Advise.

Sounds like sunburn: A baby gets sunburn very easily. Even on a cloudy day, it is possible to get a sunburn, because uv light penetrates through clouds. I would strongly recommend to keep babies in a shade, not directly expose to any sunlight. A baby gets sunstroke more easily than older children as well. ...Read more
