Hello,

Thanks for the question.

Such rashes can be due to focal infections, allergies or autoimmune disorders. Most rashes are self limiting and heal on their own; but since rashes have lasted for three weeks and is weeping clear fluid, it needs medication attention. There is a possibility of secondary infection. You need to see doctor for this.

Meanwhile you can try oral antihistamines such as Benadryl; this will reduce your itching and help you sleep. Also start using local antibiotic cream which is available over the counter to prevent other infections. You may clean the discharge with a clean and moist cloth; avoid handling the lesions with bare fingers or other by other septic means.

Watch out for pus discharge and if there is significant pus discharge then you might need oral antibiotics.

Do consider visiting your doctor/dermatologist at the earliest to get clinical evaluation done so that more appropriate treatment can be planned.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to ask if there are doubts.

Regards

Hi, my 1 year old baby began drinking whole milk on Dec 16th. Since then, she has not been sleeping well, her stool is white in color and she has developed a terrible diaper rash. Before whole milk she was drinking Similac Sensitive (lactose-free). Two days ago I switched her back to the Similac and her diaper rash has cleared and her stool color looks normal again. Do you think she is lactose intolerant? What milk should I feed her?

my daughter is living in a dorm on college campus this year and has experienced rashes, fever, headaches, body aches and now suffers from lack of ability to finish her thoughts and suddenly is struggling testing. The campus found mold in her room and CO2 levels at 1250-1500 and claim they have resolved these issues. However, the memory loss just started and when she left town this past weekend, her fever and aches and rash disappeared. Now she has returned to her room and has a fever and headache. What could be causing this and should we push to move her to a different dorm room for the remainder of the semester?

I have been diagnosed with pityriasis rosea. Have had a horrible rash covering most of my body for 2 weeks now. Skin is extremely dry and I have recently noticed a distinct odor originating from my skin. Is the odor common and how can I get rid of the odor? I know I pretty much just need to wait for the rash to go away.
