Can you upload some images

Hi,

Skin conditions are best diagnosed only after seeing directly.

I suggest you to upload photographs of the same on this website, so that I can guide you scientifically.

Also, please get back to me with the current weight of the child.

Brief Answer:
This looks like chickenpox - you need to give Acyclovir

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

This looks like chickenpox. You can give oral Acyclovir five times a day for 5 days.

However, this is a prescription drug and you will need a doctor's prescription for this.

Hope I have answered your query.

Thank you.
