Hi Doc,
My 10 months old boy was crying last night and i was so worried cause he was not sick at all.So this morning when i changed his nappy i noticed this red pimple like sores on his thighs and legs only. It looks like he was bitten by something.

Please advice becuase he is scratching himself so hard.And again Doc have a wonderful weekend.

Thanking you in advance,

It is very difficult for me to advise you about your baby's rash without being able to see him. It may be that he has been bitten by an insect such as a mosquito or a flea. The rash may also be a form of nappy rash. Apply Bepanthen cream to the rash and if it does not clear after 2 days please take him to be seen by his doctor.
