Based on D history: You've given, heat rash is the primary consideration. It could be from skin sensitivity to the sun or from blood vessels opening up with increased blood flow after sun exposure. Get them checked also for allergic, atopic and contact dermatitis. Best wishes! . http://www. M.webmd. Com/children/skin-rashes-in-children-treatment.

Maybe herpetic virus: If you or someone close to the baby has herpes -- cold sores, etc. Then it is possible that your baby has gotten them. What you described is consistent with a primary (1st time) herpetic infection. Get to the pediatrician asap for diagnosis and any treatment.

Whenever I'm hot I have a red blotchy rash appear on my chest. Sometimes it will occur on my shoulders and face. What is this?

See your physician: This is vasodilatation - a local body response to try to dissipate heat. It may e a response to a medication. Occasionally, it represents a chemical response to a serious medical problem. Even when no cause can be found, treatment is available to decrease the dilatation and flushing. You need to see your physician so he/she can evaluate the situation, clarify it and treat it.

Like this?: Seborrheic dermatitis ("cradle cap") can spread to the face, eyelashes ; behind ears. It can be treated by using z-tar or other anti-dandruff shampoo. Lather up a fingertip's worth, shampoo ; rinse thoroughly. If the scalp is red for more than a few moments, discontinue use. If it looks infected or is very itchy, see her pediatrician for other treatments (miconazole or mild hc creams).

Rash on face, little itchy, face feels hot, changes from dark bright red to light red at times, headache. Is it cholesterol med or sun?

Read drug info: This is most likely a reaction to the sun but your medications may make you photo sensitive and prone to a rash. If this is the area to which you are applying steroid, that could also be a cause.

Depends on the cause: There are many types and causes of skin rashes that could cause itching. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Can irritant contact dermatitis cause red butterfly rash on face? Rash does not hurt or itch but feels hot when it is red?

Can irritant contact dermatitis cause red butterfly rash on face? Rash does not hurt or itch but feels hot when it is red?

Possible: Malar ("butterfly") rash could be caused by contact dermatitis, for instance due to cosmetic products. However, malar rash, particularly when very sensitive to the sun, can be a feature of lupus or other autoimmune diseases. Usually other symptoms and lab abnormalities would be present, so you should be evaluated for the rash by your doctor.

My 1 year old has rash on face and under chin, it's red spotted and itchy under chin. Going around to side of ears! Should I be concerned?

My 1 year old has rash on face and under chin, it's red spotted and itchy under chin. Going around to side of ears! Should I be concerned?

M.D. visit/skin care: In addition to eczema, it may be related to contact with a product or plant oil that triggers a reaction. I would suggest the use of a hypoallergenic soap such as white dove and eucerin cream, avoiding hot water and rubbing the area, until your physician sees him.
