Q.

Skin Rash

Hi Doc,

How can i treat skin Rash in my 12 month old. The rash started on her face now it has spread to her back. It looks to me like one she had before which was a virus but she doesnt have that jelly-like stuf in her poo. I am thinking of getting her that Ruiteri drops for infants, what else can i use to apply maybe on the skin.

thanx doc

It is difficult for me to be sure about your baby's rash without being able to see her.From your description here her rash may indeed be due to a virus and will simply clear up when she gets better.Using Reuteri drops is a good idea to boost her immune system.

Hi there, it starts with fever, then the Rash all over her skin you will see it will not look like normal rash, you will also see stuff that looks like jelly or mucus in the baby' s poo.. thats a virus. At the hospital they gave her Reuteri drops and some medication i forgot the name. They said i must wait for the Virus to clear on its own but the baby really looked terrible
