Q.

Rash

Good morning!
I wrote about a week ago about my 2yr olds bad rash he''s had now going 3wks weeks, you recommended mylocort for 5days. it has cleared up a bit, doesnt seem to be itching as much, but now my question is, do i continue with the mylocort or take to doc as you recommended if it does not clear up after 5 days, by the looks of it, it still gonna take at least a week to clear up if it all?

Paediatrician

It would be best to take your little son to see a paediatrician now as his rash is not responding to treatment as I would have hoped it would.He may have a zinc deficiency. You can try giving him Zinplex syrup daily and see if this helps his rash to heal.
