Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
How old is your daughter?
Can you upload some pictures?
If you email them from your phone to your computer you can then upload them here.
Does your daughter have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
I only had a half day in clinic this afternoon so I'm just sitting here catching up on patient charts -- no hurry :)
I am a retina surgeon....and a father of 5
you can probably contact customer service and figure out a way to get the pictures to me....or I can opt out and you can wait for our dermatologists.
Let me know what you would like to do.
Derm issues really are a visual type of problem....without pictures (and sometimes even with them) they are very difficult to diagnose.
As a doctor and father, who also lives in the country with the nearest "town" (35K folks) over an hour away, I would put 1% hydrocortisone cream on the lesions, give her 25 to 50 mg of benadryl for the itching and not worry too much at this moment given the limited symptoms she is having at school.
And, then, see what the pediatrician has to say tomorrow.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

It has been a pleasure to assist you today.Thanks in advance,Dr. Rick MD FACS
Not sure....they don't let us worker bee's know about the important stuff ;)
But the excellent feedback button should be right there on your screen....
