This may well be ringworm.You do not mention your baby's age. Try Clotrimazole cream applied twice a day and see if this clears the ringworm rash. If it does not help after 10 days then please ask your doctor to see your baby.

the sister saw it in the clinic but she said she will out grow it its normal as long as she doesnt seem bothered..
