Brief Answer: relax Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. As per your discription it seems to be more of allergic reaction which could be any garment/food item/environmental etc. I suggest you to continue with antiallergic drops. Apply calamine lotion over red spots 2 to 3 times a day. Hydrocortisone in low concencentration is to be applied topically after consulting your doctor. Watch for any other symptom like -fever/lethargy/refusal of feeds/rash increasing . Hope I have answered your query,let me know if there is any further question. Wishing your baby good health. God bless...
