Thanks for your query.

your child is having some allergy.
Continue with medication as advised by your doctor.
Keep a watch on spread of rash for another 12 hours and if it worsens get him re evaluated by doctor for further management.
For itching you can give benadryl in prescribed dosage.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless..

Thank you for your query.

It would be good to know which cream was prescribed, because sometime it takes a little longer to show any effect. Considering the speed that it is spreading and I am assuming that there is no fever or other symptoms, it is probably an allergic reaction. I suggest you to go see the same doctor.

Have a nice day and good luck.
