My child has a red rash with small white bumps for the second time this week.  The only thing that coincides is recieving Camilia for teething, ideas?

Age of baby? : It's hard to say much about this without more history. How old is the baby? Does he have fever? How is he eating? Is his weight gain good? Does it seem to be an itchy rash? Does anyone else in the family have a similar rash? Any other contacts with illness? Any travel? The answers to these questions combined with visual exam can help diagnose. We may be able to help in a Prime Visit. ...Read more

Could be Eczema: If the "small bumps" are the same color or slightly lighter as your child's skin and a little dry, then it could be eczema. Pilaris eczema (keratosis pilaris) is a common and benign form of eczema. Though like all forms of eczema, some kids get it worse than others. Consult with your primary care provider or a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and get treatment advice. ...Read more

Have the doc see it.: Children get so many types of rashes and skin lesions. They can be due to allergies, illness, or any number of things. Think if there have been any new foods, soaps, shampoos, detergents, etc in her life. Best is to have her pediatrician check her out to make sure that it is not a rash associated with any other type of condition. Many times, a rash's origin cannot be traced. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Milia: Milk bumps most likely. Avoid trying to open them. They will likely pass. While a resident, i was trained to "ask the grandmother" if you don't know the rash. There is a lot of truth here. ...Read more
