My 1 month old son has developed rashes in form of small red bumps all over his body including face neck chest and back. What should I do?

My 1 month old son has developed rashes in form of small red bumps all over his body including face neck chest and back. What should I do?

Baby acne?: It's likely to be baby acne at his age, assuming that he is otherwise well and feeding normally. Baby acne tends to occur right around this age and looks like red bumps that get redder and stand out more when baby is upset or just after a bath. This goes away on its own in a few weeks. It is caused by maternal hormones that crossed through the placenta. No treatment is needed.

My daughter has a rash on her face, neck, and chest it is warm to the touch and red and bumpy what could be wrong?

This could be a: Reaction to something she ingested (ate) or had contact with. Is she on any medications? Is it itchy? Is she sick in any other way (sore throat, fever)? I would recommend if she has any of these other symptoms, that she be seen by her pediatrician.. ..and to make a definitive diagnosis, she should be seen.

Usually baby acne: Timing and location suggest baby acne.A simple process about half of babies will have, peaks at 2 mo and usually fades without treatment at 3m. While pregnant, baby floated in moist conditions like face cream and the placenta removed maternal hormones. Deliver/clamp the cord and baby must deal with left over hormones and dry air. This is likely a normal process, check with doc if you wish.

Hard to say but: Depends on how long you have had it...Did it occur in past. ... Possibly contact allergy (? New soap detergent makeup etc) hives can occur for no obvious reason., try Allegra (fexofenadine) or zyrtec (read labels) if no better see your dr. Good luck.

Heat Rash?: The only way to be know for sure, is to have your rash looked at by a doc. However, the rash you describe is likely from the heat and is either an irritant or a minor skin infection of the hair follicles. Wash it well with soap and water to see if is would clear in a day or so. If not check it out with your doc.

Red clindamycin 300mg4X daily/ 10 days for recurrent strep. Got rash all over arms neck chest face. Prescribed azithromycin instead, is this ok?

Red clindamycin 300mg4X daily/ 10 days for recurrent strep. Got rash all over arms neck chest face. Prescribed azithromycin instead, is this ok?

Drug rash: It appears that you are having a drug reaction from clindamycin. Since it bears no relationship to azithromycin, you will likely tolerate it although nearly any drug can lead to a skin rash. If you have a lot of itching still, contact your doctor for Rx.

I have a rash on my chest, neck and chin that is grainy and slightly red. I have had low-grade fever, sore throat and head ache. What could it be?

Could be viral: But I always get concerned about Strep throat and the rash from Strep when I hear about symptoms like yours. I strongly recommend you get a throat culture and if positive, treat with oral antibiotic.
