Measels

Good day
My 11 old month daughter had a rush over her whole body the doctor prescribed alergix which did not seem to help then I was advised to bath her with rooibos tea and it helped but now her skin is peeling of and very dry i only use regular aquas cream to moisturise her skin but it does not seem to help.Please advice what can I use for the dry skin.
Thanks Doc

It sounds as if your baby has indeed had an illness known as roseola that is often called "baby measles" This is not the ordinary kind of measles. Your baby had her first vaccination against measles at 9months.Use Epimax junior to treat her dry skin. It is best to apply the Epimax after bathing her.
