Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash.

Itchy skin rash all over body (except for face, neck, palms and soles) for 14 days. NO fever, NO flu-like symptons, NO lymph node. Can it be HIV ARS?

Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR. ...Read more

More details: This can be a drug reaction, a viral infection, or the onset of a new skin condition. Given the scanty history and description, I would suggest that you try taking antihistamine to see if it helps. If the itching is intolerable or the rash is getting worse, need to see your doctor. ...Read more

Not enough info: A detailed history and visualization of your skin rashes are needed for proper diagnosis and treatment. By your description, it looks like your skin rashes were there for sometimes but i don't have info on how long the other symptoms are. Those might associate or are different entities and have different diagnosis and treatment. You should make an appointment to see a doctor for proper care. ...Read more

Maybe: In order to know how serious the rash may be more information is needed. If there is a fever or any other signs of infection it may be a viral rash, however that decision should be made by your medical provider. Fevers in infants need to be taken seriously and the child examined to look for source of infection. Speak with the provider today to decide further course of action. ...Read more

My 1 year old son has a rash all over the body and face, what can I give him?

My 1 year old son has a rash all over the body and face, what can I give him?

May not need anythin: The whole body rash implys a whole body issue.Possibly a simple entero(stomach)virus that ended in a painless flat pinpoint rash as it ended, or consumed a product that resulted in itchy bumps all over. A new shampoo or bath soap/detergent etc could be an issue. For major itching a cool bath or teaspoon of benedryl/25lb might be indicated short term.If no itching do nothing, it will fade on its own. ...Read more
