Coxsackie virus ?: This could be several things but the first one that comes to mind is coxsackie virus. Keep the child well hydrated with water. Give them children's tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever and/discomfort. Take them to their pediatrician as soon as you are able. Usually resolves in about a week. Dehydration is usually the biggest problem. ...Read more

My daughter came in the house from playing and i noticed a rash all over her face only red on her cheeks is this a allergic reaction to something?

My daughter came in the house from playing and i noticed a rash all over her face only red on her cheeks is this a allergic reaction to something?

Probably not: If the rash did not itch and went away within a hour , it was unlikely to be from an allergic reaction. I suspect that she is very light complexioned and may be more prone to develop rosacea in the future. Let me know whether I am correct or not since we do need feedback to enhance our own learning experience. ...Read more

Infection? : Hives don't usually go along with small blister like dots with a black center unless the blisters are impetigo. I'm not sure what the black dots are. If there is an infection then antibiotics are needed. Get her checked. ...Read more

What can cause weltlike red blotches on a child?

What can cause weltlike red blotches on a child?

Hives: This is due to release of histamine from cells in skin. It may seem strange for me to blame diet again but the histamine release is the result of a message from the brain. It is the brain where the excitability is and trhat, in my long edperience is related to poor diet, particularly the sugary stuff. ...Read more

My toddler has red bumps on her legs.  She also has a few on her trunk and arms.  These red bumps are spread out and are not bothering her.Poison ivy?

Patches or streaks ?: Poison ivy tends to start as small blisters in patches or long streaks where the ivy plant comes in contact or a kids contaminated hand or fingers spread the antigen. The thick skin of the palm or finger pads tend not to break out but ivy juice under fingernails spread where a kid scratches. If you see individual bumps scattered around it is likely something else. ...Read more

Hello. Rash on lips, dry throat and the tonsils inflammation, dry eyes and red spots on the skin (and i got measles as a child) what could i have?

Hello. Rash on lips, dry throat and the tonsils inflammation, dry eyes and red spots on the skin (and i got measles as a child) what could i have?

See your doc: If you had has normal measles (rubeola) as a kid, you should be immune. You may have german measles (rubella). I wouldn't expect so if you were vaccinated as a child. Alternatively, if you are blistering on anything with a mucous membrane lips, cheeks, throat, eyes--you could be having a bad allergic reaction called stevens johnson syndrome. That's pretty serious and requires urgent attention. ...Read more

Petechiae: When fragile capillaries in the eyes and face rupture, small hemorrhages are created. Petechiae (tiny red flat dots) due to vomiting or coughing typically heal up on on their own without intervention and pose no long term consequences when isolated to the face. As with most rashes, it's always best to have them evaluated by your pediatrician. ...Read more

My daughter has red bumps all over her except her nose today i noticed three more on her chest, is this baby acne, eczema or heat rash?

Red bumps: Not knowing your child's age i would rule out baby acne. Eczema doesn' t usually cause bumps. She might heat rash but could also have the hives.. For heat rash cut down on room temperature and/ or clothes child is wearing. For hives you can try benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

Big red bumps at his back. Red bump at eyelids. Medium red bumps left side of his face. Is it an allergy? What medicine should he take?

Maybe, can't say: Dermatology diagnoses are typically made visually. Then re-examined, or biopsied and looked via microscope, often with special stains, then blood tests are drawn. Hives, bites, viral rashes, contact allergy, medication allergy, too many possibilities here; get seen by provider. Use antihistamines first, low dose topicsl steroids. Think about possible exposure: plants, cosmetics, adhesives, etc. ...Read more
