Customer Question
My son has a rash...
My son has a rash all over his bottom, where his belly meets his legs as well as on both cheeks and under his eyes and his eye lids are red. It has been bad the last three days. It is not an allergic reaction to anything we have had him food allergy tested and have taken all foods on the list out of his diet over a month ago. What else could be causing it?

I do not and he is in bed sleeping. It is more of a blotchy rash though
Dermatologist: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 6 months ago

It could just be a viral syndrome

Kids his age get viruses commonly this time of year.

viruses of all types can cause rashes in kids

Is there anything we can do to help it not agitate him so bad especially the eyes?
Dermatologist: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 6 months ago

I would use childrens benadryl

that should help some

and get him seen if it progresses

he may need a dose of steroids

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
