Does the skin rash blanch if your baby has diaper rash?

Does the skin rash blanch if your baby has diaper rash?

Yes.: Diaper dermatitis will usually blanch when you press on it; it's a sign that the skin is inflamed, and the little tiny blood vessels in it have dilated to bring more blood to the area.

Is tinea versicolor contagious to newborn baby?

Is tinea versicolor contagious to newborn baby?

Yes, it's possible.: Tinea versicolor is a fungal infection of the skin. Perspiration and hot humid environments are conducive to the spread of this offending agent. Consequently with skin to skin contact of a newborn in a warm, moist environment it is conceivably "possible" to spread this to a baby.

How effective is candibec to skin rash in infants?My babys pedia recomend it,

Trust ur (kid's) doc: Candibec appears to be a combination steroid cream available in the philippines. It only works if the rash is responsive to it. While it can suppress immune response to infection, it won't get rid of infection. So your pediatrician must have a good reason to recommend it rather than antifungal or other cream. In other words, need to know cause of skin rash. Get 2nd opinion if you don't trust doc. ...Read more
