Q.

Rash

My baby has developed a rash around his mouth and under his chin. I think that it is because he is teething and drools alot. He also sucks on a dummy.

Is this the cause of the rash or could it be something else? What can I apply on his face to help?

Thank you

This could be a candida rash or may possibly be an allergic rash caused by a reaction to the dummy. Apply Nystain cream twice daily to the rash and if it is not better after 3 or 4 days ask your doctor to see him.
