    Default Rash on DS

    My DS has a flaky dry looking rash on his arm. He has patches of dry skin on arms and legs but they don't look the same, they seem to get a bit better with moisturiser.

    I'm not sure if it could be eczema or a heat rash or something else?

    I have photos but my phone can't seem to focus properly on it.

    Can anyone explain what it may be?

    If it's flaky, I'd be more inclined to think it's eczema. I would put Sorbolene cream on it a few times a day and see if that helps. If it's not helping might be worth getting it check by a doctor and look into a mild cortisone cream.

    Thanks! He's about to have a bath so I'll try that and see what happens

    He seems to be getting better 😊 been putting sorb plebe cream on him during the day and it's still there but seems to be clearing up.
    Thank you

    Sorb plebe lol

    It does sound like eczema, what works for our DS is bathing every other day, no bubble bath, shampoo and moisturiser with no petrochemicals, I aways get him out of the bath as soon as I've rinsed the shampoo off too. We use Gaia moisturiser and shampoo. Shower instead of a bath can be better too. Maybe worth getting the GP to confirm its eczema though.

    Gotta love autocorrect lol

    I'll take him to the gp as soon as we can and ask her.
    We do a bath every second day and he's had moogoo products since he was born and not had the rash like this before, that's why I was wondering about a heat rash.
    On the days he doesn't have a bath he has a shower with DP or myself which is more a good rinse off.

    We actually found that Moogoo made his skin worse.

    Oh really? We've never had a problem with it. I'm not sure if it could be the moogoo. Maybe I'll change them anyway n see if it makes a difference
