We have just returned from Abu Dhab, yesterday. She has had headaches for a couple of days and a little grouchy, I gave her some calpol and just put it down to the heat. I don't know if she has had a temperature because it was so hot there
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
You would have noticed high grade temperature.These rashes look essentially like dermatitis or allergic rashes. They are not infectious or bacterial by the look of it.If she does not have a fever, then a simple anti allergic will help. You can give her Benadryl (OTC) children's liquid suspension.That should clear this up. For the itch hydrocortisone 1 percent (OTC) should be applied and will help.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.

I was worried that it was scarlet fever .
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Not likely, that rash appears around the neck and the face and leaves clear the mouth.Then spreads to the chest and the back.Sore throat, high grade fever and swollen glands in the neck are other signs which are not present here.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.
