Eczema in babies: It is increasingly recognized that eczema/atopic dermatitis in infants is a manifestation of a food allergy.

Folliculitis: Sounds like you're describing a mild case of folliculitis. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/folliculitis/ds00512.

My baby had a loose bowel almost 3days now, I gave him hydrasec at his milk, he stil not ok, and I saw a rashes around his rectum and butt?

Please see Dr. ASAP: Diarrhea x 3 days, particularly if the baby is not drinking well can result in dehydration. Rash in perianal area and on buttocks is most likely due to irritation from loose stool sitting in his diaper even for a very short period of time. Use a very gentle cleanser like cetaphil bar, not wipes, to wash after bowel movements & use a thicker diaper cream like triple paste to protect delicate skin. ...Read more

I have allergy, probably to Ponstan 500. The skin rash is nearly gone after 5 days, but now I start to have really bad rashes. What should I do?

Something else?: If the rash improved without treatment only to return a few days after (your dates were not defined), then the problem may be from something other than the drug implicated. If the rash was treated and returned after the treatment was stopped, then the rash (if due to the drug) may last for 2-3 weeks. ...Read more

What do I do to get rid of a serious rash/raw skin on my vagina and butt?

Possible intertrigo: This is likely intertrigo, a heat type rash in skin folds. First, keep the area dry by blow drying after a shower and liberal powdering.
Then, try 1% Hydrocortisone cream 2-3/day, and if that doesn't help, try any over the counter anti-fungal cream. Balneol is also good for this type thing.
Btw, it is not your vagina, but your vulva that is involved. ...Read more

I have rash around the bikini line it now spread to the side of my vagina cheeks, its itchy and raw and hot to touch n skin turned black what is it?

Don't know: Rashes are really impossible to diagnose over the computer, so seeing a dr for a visual examination would be your best bet. In the bikini line though, you may have shaved and that can cause an irritation and folliculitis like rash. Groin areas commonly get fungal infections too. But as stated, these are guesses only, see a dr for the answer and tx, best wishes. ...Read more
