Brief Answer:
Either eczematous dermatitis or photodermatitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs though they are not very clear.
It seems to be either eczematous dermatitis or photodermatitis to sun exposure.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like mometasone cream on the bumps twice daily for 7-10 days.
No need to apply boroline and aloevera gel.
You can continue with tablet allegra and montair LC for few more days.
Steroidal creams are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.

The medicines prescribed to you are fine. Desonide is also a topical steroid.
You can apply it on the bumps.
According to me there is no need to take antibiotic phexin.
You can continue with rest of the medicines.

Hi again,

As per those pictures you have uploaded, I couldn't see any signs of infection.
It is looking like an eczematous rash. That's why I feel that there is no need of antibiotics.

My new born is 50 days old. Am seeing yellow puss from her right ear for the last 3-4 days. She is not showing any kind of discomfort or pain. She is drinking milk on regular intervals n also having ample sleep. Can i know why puss is coming from her right ear? She sleeps with her head turned on right side so that the infected ear is pressed down on her sheet. We consulted a dr. And he prescribed Phexin antibiotics . We started giving her the medicibe from yest morn onwards 3 times a day. Half filler mixed with breast milk . Even on medication i didnt find my baby s infection reduced. Today morning also saw puss from her ears. What can be the reason and is there anything serious?

Hello Doctor, I suffer eye infection now and I am currently on Ciprofloxacin eye drops, Lubrex eye drops and Gatifloxacin eye ointment. Earlier my doctor suggested me Toba DM, Phexin tablet and Gatifloxacin eye ointment for 5 days. Pain is much reduced now still the swelling and itch is not. And I am not sure how long it will take to cure this infection. Can you please let me know what should I do? Thanks.
