9 year old has almost like diaper rash on inside of bottom cheek... Been using a&d but still there. She uses flushable wipes to wipe after bowel moment?

Avoid wipes: Wipes do not necessarily "clean" your bottom and the chemicals may irritate the skin. Try a tub bath and plain dove soap. Rinse very well. Keep the area dry, use only cotton underwear. If it is itchy it may be yeast and you could try anti fungal creams. Be careful it does not look infected, it is "honey crusting" or developing areas that look pus filled, if that is the case see your doc asap. ...Read more

Pharyngitis: You're describing a pharyngitis which is unrelated to shingles. I wonder "why" at your young age you're under attack from shingles followed by a nasty throat infection. I hope u can get yourself checked to find out "why" this happened to u. There could be something wrong with your immune system or you're under way too much stress. Hope u feel better soon! ...Read more
