Q.

RUSH ALL OVER THE BODY

Hi Doc,

My baby is having a rush all over the body, her skin is so dry and itchy. she' s always scratching her body from head to toe. I have been trying all kind of aquas creams from doctors prescriptions and they didn' t help. I went to a Paed last time and she said she' s got Eczima and she recommended a lotion called Physiogel and Emollient for bathng. It didn' t work and i went again to see her she suggested to do the blood test for her to check wats wrong we still waiting for the results.

Your baby does appear to have eczema which is not getting better with simple treatment. She does need to have tests done to find out what she is allergic to, so it is important to go back to your paediatrician.
