Q.

Rash

My 3 months old has developed a rash on his arms and legs and it it seems as if its spreading to his back as well. Previously the doctor prescribed Eucerine to use for craddle cap which affected also his face. I am not sure what to make out of this rash, could it be allergy? He is on Novalac AC doctor suggested it because he had a lot of wind. I am using Bennets Aquous Cream & Bath oil for both bathing and after bath. Thanks

What you need here is a proper diagnosis. From your description the rash sounds like seborrhoea, but it could be eczema.Use Epimax to moisturise his skin and you can use Epizone E in his bath. If he does not improve please go back to your doctor and ask for a diagnosis and the correct treatment.
