You: You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit. ...Read more

Newborn acne: Newborns develop baby acne around 2 weeks of age and it peaks around 6 weeks, usually gone by 12. If your baby is in this age group, it could be newborn acne. Your baby's pores are sensitive to changes in hormone levels (just like during the teen years) - so all those Estrogens they were exposed to during pregnancy are suddently gone - and boom - breakout! No treatment needed - be patient. ...Read more

Viral infections can give a genralised rash but some like chicken pox are peculiar, contagious and need special care.

My 15 month old has little red bumps all over her body can it be chicken pop?

NotChickenPox: At 15 months your child should have had her first varicella vaccine which should protect her from the chicken pox. As no vaccine is 100% then the next thing to know about pox is that the rash typically starts with just a couple of bumps which increase over the next few days. The bumps go from being red macules (flat) to pustules (blisters) with in about 24-36 hours after they first appeared. ...Read more

Difficult to say: Most rashes are not emergencies & get better on their own without treatment. If this came on suddenly & itches it could be a mild allergy to something she came in contact with. It could also be from a viral illness, especially if she has other symptoms of illness. Less likely is insect or bug bites, if it's widespread. Bites are usually more isolated. Age/weight-based Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help w/ itch. ...Read more

My daughter has small red bumps all over her body. Injection site of last immunization bruised, swelling with bumps in it?

Allergic reaction?: Red, raised bumps are most commonly a sign of an allergic reaction. Swelling and bruising is not unexpected at the site of any injection, however. If there are any signs of difficulty breathing or fever, then a personal evaluation would be prudent. If she is otherwise normal, observe and contact pediatrician if it does not resolve. Report the reaction to the pediatrician. ...Read more
