Sorry I'm putting this here as I think it gets the most traffic.
DS 2.5 has got a rash all over his body, it started almost 2 weeks ago with a fairly itchy rash on his butt cheeks which I only saw in the evening when we bathed him. He'd scratched so much that the rash got quite red and a bit Inflamed. Small little dots that looked bigger as they were Inflamed.
Anyway it was after his bedtime when I went to the chemist and explained it to the guy who said I should try hydrozole cream, which I did. The next morning it looked much better as he hadn't been scratching it through the night.
I put hydrozole on it every other day for about a week and it didn't seem to be bothering him much, but noticed the rash had moved to his legs and body but it was so light and he wasn't scratching it.
I thought it may be heat rash but then it also hasn't been THAT hot.
I also took him to the doctor on Thursday last week and she said it didn't look like measles or chicken pox and I told her he did have a high temp one night about 4 days before the rash appeared. She said to use the hydrozole 3 times a day on his butt cheeks for a week and come
Back if it didn't go away.
Well today it's all over his body. He's fine, no fever, not unhappy etc not scratching but I can't figure out what's causing the rash! I'm pregnant and a bit freaked out about what it could be... The dots ate tiny and red but also quite light so u have to look close, some spots are a bit more noticeable than other.
