your daughter is 16 month old having rashes of colour red and pink , I want to know size of rashes ... from where it started ?did your baby exposed to hot climate ?

pink or red colour pimple like rashes on neck, shoulder and front side are more going towards the diagnosis of heat rashes .
if u wear your baby tight cloth not loose and cotton one in this summer time in india these rashes may occur .

It can develop when the sweat ducts become blocked and swell and often leads to discomfort and itching. you should be careful for seconday bacterial infection. it usually go away with 3-4 days .

1. wear loose and cotton cloth . keep skin cool and dry.
2. maintain hydration . increase water consumption.
3. prevent from direct exposure to heat ..
4. for smoothening of skin you should apply calamine lotion . avoid other ointment .
. if it doesn't go away after 3 or 4 days, or if it appears to be getting worse, or if your child develops a fever, contact your doctor right away.

it would be helpful to you .
