Blotchy skin rashes on the body of a child. What could they be?

Hi! My daughter has a blotchy red rash all over her body......behind the knees, in the elbow , tummy, diaper area, behind the neck, on her back etc. She doesn t seen to be bothered by it. She doesn t scratch it and it doesn t seem to hurt/ burn when I bathe her or put cream on. It looks like welts, but they are not raised at all. They are a bright red. There is no other colour like white. We took her to the dr today and he wasn t sure what it was. I thought it may be a yeast infection but the symptoms sound different. I know it s hard to diagnose without seeing it but would you have any ideas of what this could be? Thank you!

Hi welcome to HCMForum. As your description suggests it may be vitiligo. where the patches are usually white in colour. but if haemoglobin is upto the mark the patches may look red.
I advise you to consult a cosmetic dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recomendations as give more of green leafy vegetables pulses sprouts fruits juices milk and sea foods. They will provide proteines b complex
Vit A E C necesosy for health of the skin. Thanks for calling.
