My 17-mo grandson has had a severe red rash for nine d

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Days now ... began on back and stomach and progressed to every single part of his body. Itching is bothersome ... mild fever one day only ... host.pediatrician saw him briefly on Saturday and dismissed it as "definitely not chicken pox, but possibly rosella or some virus or allergy"

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Warm water makes inflammation and itching worse, which I would expect

Hello my name is***** am a board-certified pediatrician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Have you been applying anything on the skin, i.e. lotion or cream, and has it helped at all? Are you giving him any medication by mouth to help with the itching? Are you able to attach a picture of the rash to this chat thread for me to review?

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.
