Q.

Rash

My 2 year old has rash around her eyes for weeks now, its red and itches a wee bit, it looks really bad, could it be Eczema? If so
what can I use?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This is probably an eczema rash but the main underlying problem is probably itchy eyes due to an allergic eye condition known as allergic conjunctivitis.It is importnat to take your child to see a paediatrician so that a proper diagnosis can be made and the correct treatment given to clear up this problem.
