Hi,

I think you need to speak to his doctor personally and immediately.

The rash could be a sign of a allergic reaction - which could be due to an insect bite, allergy to an unknown substance etc.

For now - you could give him 3 ml of benadryl - but you need to talk to her doctor.

Hope this helped. This conversation is not over unless you are satisfied. Please let me know if I can help you further.

we live on a farm so an insect bite could be the reason, he has been very irritable and grumpy. he hasnt been sleeping well and has gone off his food a bit as well. he used to love eating yogurts but refuses them now, could this be the problem?he is still breast feeding normally.

Hi,

Yes an insect bite is quite probably.

Like i said give him some benadryl for now and contact his doctor immediately.
