Question: My 11-month-old baby has strange rashes on her neck, stomach, and sometimes back.
These have been on and off, but are now usually strong.

Here is what they look like:
http://www.yyyyyyy.com/t/yyyyyy (only the neck can be seen)

What is even stranger is that my wife nows has 2 or 3. On the inner thigh, on the leg, and I forget where the other one is.

Can some expert take a look at the photo and tell me what it might be and if I need to make a appt with her pediatrician to get it check out?

thanx in advnce

Hi xxxxxx
Welcome to healthcaremagic
I have seen the attached photograph and according to me it looks like a case of insect bite hypersensitivity reaction but I would recommend you to upload few more clear pictures to confirm the diagnosis.
I would also like to ask you few questions:
Whether the rash is associated with any itching or burning?
What is the duration of the rash?
Any history of fever, cough or systemic complaints?
Regards

Detailed Answer:
Hi!! According to the history it seems to be a case of papular urticaria which is an insect bite hypersensitivity reaction. You don't have to worry as it is a common condition in children. I recommend my patients to apply cortisone cream on the affected areas for few days. Along with this make your child wear full sleeved clothes during late evenings and at night. Also don't take her to places with plenty of vegetation during late evenings and night. I hope to have answered your query. Wish you good luck.

Can a cortisone shot cause your blood pressure to go up and heart rate to increase my blood pressure is usually around 119/78 and heart rate rarely goes over 90. I am on beta blockers and lisinopril. The Ortho said that the cortisone shot will not cause this side effects. But I was fine until about 6 hours after the shot, when I started getting all these side effects. Also flushing of the face and headaches.

Earlier today I had cortisone injection in my wrist for De Quervain s. An hour later my hand was still tingling and sore, and my hand and forearm was really cold, even though warm outside. Non-injected arm & hand fine. This lasted for about 2 hours. Now, my hand is a bit sore but not as cold anymore.

After receiving cortisone injections, the next day I get a facial flushing. I went for a cortisone injection today for a neuroma in my foot. I mentioned this to the doctor and he did not want to give me an injection until I check this out. I have had it happen several times in the past, and it comes on the next day lasting only 24 hours. Is there anything to worry about?
