My 8 year old daughter has been on miralax 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. This is best addressed by a dermatologist. ...Read more

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

Allergy: Sound like a reaction to the medication. Itching can usually be helped with Benadryl otc. Just follow the directions on the package. You should also call the doc who gave you the medicine to let them know your symptoms. ...Read more

Can body rashes ( elbow and kneews) be associated to teething?

Can body rashes ( elbow and kneews) be associated to teething?

Not probable: A rash behind the knees and elbows sounds more like eczema. Teething will not typically cause a rash. Have your childs rash looked at by his/her pediatrician or a dermatologist. ...Read more
