Customer Question

My daughter has had a red raised rash on her legs for almost a month. Went to pediatrician and stated it was a viral rash. Followed up with her regular pediatrician last week and said it was impentigo. It is not weeping or crusty. Not impentigo. It is red a raised in patches, but some areas have a fine flat red dotted rash. It started on the back of her thighs and has now spread down the back and side of her legs. She is 2 and says itchy.

Thank you for the input.
Fungal infection should not spread such widely so soon.
It is most probably due to allergy.
Try to find out any new food, clothing, bedsheet, linen, lotion, soap etc. you might have started.
Allergy test can be considered.
You can try with zyrtec.
Oral steroid preparation can be needed.
You may consider consulting an allergist.
I hope this information will be helpful.
