Got a rash on legs knees elbows and buttocks from being at the beach today. Any ideas what caused this? Not itchy- but looked like hives.
Beach Rash: Several factors can cause you to be itchy after a trip to the beach. Bugs, like sand fleas and the mosquito, are not uncommon on some beaches. The sand itself can cause irritations, especially to sensitive skin or freshly shaved skin. Another cause could be sweat dermatitis, which is a rash caused when sweat is trapped in the skin.

Itchy?: At this young age, I would be more suspicious of eczema (atopic dermatitis) which may be linked to food allergies as well as airborne allergens. If these rash itch, then eczema is more likely. If you are using Cetaphil lotion, be sure to use it regularly and apply it within 3 mins after bathing. Talk to your pediatrician.

Ibuprofen: Ibuprofen is a NSAID that has been associated with hives. I don't know what type of rash you have, but at any rate you need to stop taking it and have an alternative pain medication. Btw if you wake up with a rash it is not a food allergy, these reactions are rapid and occur within minutes of food ingestion not hours later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby is 3 months old and has reddish rashes on her cheeks, elbows, and knees. Is it just eczema?
Probably, but: I would not blow it off. Many infants are allergic to a food that is causing the rash.
