What can I use to stop oozing from rashes?

Hi how are you? My baby girl who is 4 months old is having rashes all over her body esp. folds. Her neck and underarms are terribly red, swallen and oozing (her armpits bleed a bit and smelly) I ve tried sudocrem, dermaid 0.5%, baby powder and calamine lotion however none of them helped her rash. It s been almost 3 weeks now and the rashes getting worse. I put mittens on her hands since she scraches her arms and neck. What can i use to stop oozing and dry her skin folds?

Hii PJ,
as per history, ur baby is suffering from atopic dermatitis, which is disease common in child and persist through out life. characterized by rashes on folds, recurrent infections and associated with other allergic diseases like asthma and rhinitis.
Currently your baby needs low to mid potent steroids in combination with topical antibiotics. certain investigations like serum IgE level need to confirm the diagnosis
hope this will help you

thank you for your query.
As per your description of rashes it might be Pyoderma- an bacterial infection.
you used neem decotion or alum (Sphatika powder- an ayurvedic medicine)in bathing of your baby. after bathing apply camphor mixed coconut oil, it provide soothing effect. if no effect then consult your pediatrician.
