Rash getting worse

Dear Doc, my one month old developed rash on the face. I took him to the Paed and he recommended Epizone E. I have been using it for 3 days and the rash is worse. Should i give it a chance or must i stop using it? Or is it too early to tell.Please advice Doc. Thank you

It is very difficult for me to comment on your baby's rash without being able to see her. Her rash is probably a normal rash that many babies develop on their face at this age which is called Milia.This rash is only a temporary problem and soon disappears by itself. No treatment is needed. If she still has the rash in 4 weeks time please write in again.
