Hi
Thanks for your query.
Since rash is there for 5 weeks and is spreading to other areas as well.
Moreover mother is having fungal infection,so there is every possibility that your child is also having the same.
physical examination of rash is must.
I suggest you to get your child examined by pediatrician or dermatologist for proper evaluation and management.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.

Hi,

Thank you for your query.

I appreciate your concern. However without having a look at the lesions it is difficult to give any advice. As the mother has a fungal infection then the chances of the daughter contracting it are more. I would suggest that you get her examined by a doctor and start appropriate treatment.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.

Regards,

RKK
