Re: Weird rash on 16-month old...HELP!
My daughter has what sounds like the same spots. They started out on her arms and legs as these little red and dry. Our doctor said that they where normal in babies diffentlty in the winter months. Well a few weeks ago i noticed that it was starting on her back and stomach. I was really starting to get worried about it. Then a fews weeks ago we went to the mall. We had forgotten her stroller, so we had to end up carrying her around. We were all hot from carrying her around. When we got home i noticed that the rash was really bad. She gets heat rash so easy. So she looked really bad. Anyways since that day with the heat rash the dry red spots have been really bad. The doctor said to put eucerin creme and hydrocortinsone on it. So thats what we do every day. It seems to help. You can really tell if we miss a day of putting on the cremes. The doctor also told me not to use lotion on her because that would make it worse. Lotions had stuff in them that can dry out the skin so cremes are better. I don't know if they have the samething, but it sounds like it. When my little one gets to hot then it makes the rash worse.
