Q.

Skin problems

My daughter is just over nine months old and when she was about two months i noticed a small patch on her back that looked like raised goosebumps (not red). It has since then come and gone but over the last two weeks has spread over her shoulders and onto her stomach and has also worsened on her back. I have not introduced any new foods so am not sure what to do. Can you tell me what it might be and if I need to take her to a dermatologist.

I am not sure of the diagnosis here, it could be an eczema problem. In any case she needs to be seen by a dermatologist.
