My 10 year old daughter woke up yesterday with a rash from

My 10 year old daughter woke up yesterday with a rash from chin to cheeks. I gave her benedryl (two doses) and a shower. Only thing I can think of is she touched something that irritated her face or she ate irritated face with eating too much spaghetti sauces. What could be cause and should I be concerned? Or should I be treating her with a topical cream? And when do you take to dr? It's not spreading.

I have a 25 month old that has a very strange rash that has

I have a 25 month old that has a very strange rash that has appeared now for over a week. It is only on his butt as well as a spot on his outer thigh and lower buttocks area. It first appeared with a few red spots that darkened and went away. Now it is spreading but it is no longer red it appears in raised patches of flesh color no distinct bumps or borders. The interesting thing is that in a day or two they scab over to little tiny cuts and he has not scratched it. Though it does itch at times, it doesn't seem to be a major symptom. I have tried the anti fungal over the counter creme, Destin, Butt paste, Triple paste, corn starch, A and D ointment.

My 3 year old son recently had head to toe poison ivy even

My 3 year old son recently had head to toe poison ivy even in his eyes. About 3 or 4 days into having this his head started to swell, so I took him to the doctor the very next morning. He was giving an injection of kenalog 10mgs to help clear up the poison ivy faster. The next morning he had a black eye and bruising around his ears. Can poison ivy cause severe bruising? He looked like he had been beat, but since he most definatly was not, I would like to know why? Thanks
