Bacterial Infection

Good day doctor, another question please.
My 3 year CP angel has had some kind of rash in face and on tummy here and there. In December went to a Pharmacy and Pharmacist told me it is ringworm. She is a stay at home child and also no pets or sand to play with. He then gave me a cream with Repivate &  Ketazol which worked wonderful. But everytime it comes back only on the face now lately. Took her to GP and he said it is either a Bacterial Infection or Eczema he then gave me pills to give her so he can see wich one it is. But he also told me if it is a bacterial infection we have a problem. What does he mean with this??????
Thank you very much.

Your little daughter's rash does sound like eczema.As she has had this rash of 4 to 5 months and it has not cleared up you need to have a diagnosis of her rash. It would be best to take your daughter to be seen by a dermatologist.
