Q.

Rash

Morning,

My LB of 8months 3weeks has developed a rash on his forehead, on top of the nose and chin (below the mouth and around the chin) its crusty on the chin. It doesn' t seem to itch.

Is this heat rash ? or could it an allergy because they gave him a Danone youghurt and he' s Lactose intolerant his on Isomil.

Thank you.

This sounds like an infectious rash called impetigo. Please ask your doctor to see your baby.
