Q.

5 month old with rash

My daughter is 5 moth old and she has been having this rash around her neck ever since she was born. It comes and goes and now its goes to her back and leaves a dry skin. Is it acne?

Your baby's rash sounds as if she has a candida infection of the skin of her neck. Apply Nystatin Cream twice daily to the rash on her neck and upper back. If the rash persists ask your doctor to see your baby.
