My 8 year old daughter has been on miralax (polyethylene glycol) since she was a year old. For the past 2 years she has had a skin rash on elbows and knees. Any link possib?
DETAILS????: Why is the child using a laxative? If there is not a very, very good reason, this needs serious attention from a DR, preferably a gastroenterologist. No, the rash, probably eczema or psoriasis, is not due to miralax (polyethylene glycol). This is best addressed by a dermatologist. ...Read more
My 8th mnt daughter has skin rashes on head, elbows, knee, bumps, cheeks, neck, arm. Her dad has psoriasis. Cud it be d same n is it serious? Using cetaphil.
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. A discussion of eczema can be found elsewhere. ...Read more

Some kind of rash on my elbow, underarm and back of my neck it is bumpy and skin colored. When you scratch it a lot and over time, it will get tougher and the area appears to be pink. If I keep scratching and scratching until it bleeds, it will become dry
This really does sound like eczema. That was my first thought before I even read your doctor's diagnosis. You could also be dealing with a dermatitis, due to an allergy. I recommend you request allergy testing or blood testing (check with your doctor regarding prices), and also a higher strength triamcinolone cream or another steroid cream like Elocon is good. Keep the areas hydrated. Use vaseline, aquaphor, or eucerin cream (in a jar).
Good luck. ...Read more
