My 6-month old baby has a very bad rash all over his torso (front and back) and head (face, neck, scalp) and he seems distressed and bothered by it. He is itching his face with the back of his hand constantly. I have a picture I took tonight when he was in the bath that shows the rash that I would like to send for you to look at and give your opinion. I took him to the GP yesterday when the rash was just starting to appear who said it was eczema and prescribed a bath emollient and dermol and said he needed moisturising. The rash has since gotten worse. I would like to have a second opinion. Thank you.
Have you looked at my question?
hello? is anyone there? I've been waiting for a response to my question for quite a while now and I'm getting very concerned. thanks
Hi, no we have only given him Allerief which contains chlorphenamine maleate, and calpol
it has settled him and certainly not done any harm, but the rash is still the same. however, we have only given it to him once, so perhaps with continued dosage it might help I guess. My concern is that it could be measles?
he has had a mild fever over the past 48 hours which comes and goes (right now he doesnt have a fever). he has not had an MMR vaccination yet
ok thank you
