Question: baby rash


 visionibs - Wed May 04, 2005 9:07 am

Could someone please help me with this rash my 3 mo old has? I think it is a food allergy, but I can't figure it out. He has had this rash for about two weeks. It is ONLY on his checks, chin, and chest. He has not had a fever and it doesn't seem to bother him. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Dear visionibs,
Looks like eczema to me, with the typical distribution, though it is usually very itchy.
Anyway, since there is no fever, you shouldn't worry. I suggest you get an over-the-counter antiallergic or steroid cream.
If fever or any other symptoms develop, it's best you go see a doctor.
