Q.

Rash

Dear Doc,

My 3 weeks old baby girl has developed rash on her face (forehead &  chicks). She has had it for 2 days now and it doesnt seem to be going away. We use uncented aqueous cream to bath her, not soap.

Please advise if this is normal or possible causes.

Many thanks,
Dad

This rash sounds like it is arash called seborrhoea especially as it is on her forehead. Try using a baby's aqueous cream twice a day on the rash. If it does not clear it would be best to ask your doctor to see her.
