Q.

Rash

Hi Doctor,

My 6 month old has a rash on his body. It started off only on his chest and was raised bumps, now it has spread and is still raised and is red, like red goose-bumps. His stools are still soft and has has about 4 a day, usually he had about 2 a day. There are no other symptoms that I can pick up.

It is really hot where we live, with the temperatures reaching the mid thirties, could it be heat rash?

Thanks

Yes this does sound like a heat rash.Keep you baby as cool as possible and make sure that he only wears cotton clothing.
