Dear Moutida,

Thanks for your query.

1)Since how long do u have this rash ?
2)Have you started using any new cosmetic?
3)Any new medication you have started ?
4)Have you taken sea food recently?
5)Is the rash itchy?

Do send the images of the lesions to YYYY@YYYY with Sub ATTN : Dr Sudarshan.

Meanwhile you can take antihistaminincs for the same and can apply calamine lotion.

if the rash increases you should contact nearest board certified physician or dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Wish you Good Health.

Dear mountida,

Thanks for the details and the photos.

I went through your photos and description provided by you, it does not look like allergic or contact dermatitis. It could be periporitis or milliaria due to heat.

You can follow these measures:
1. Apply a cool soothing lotion like calamine or aloe vera lotion.
2. Maintain sun protection, if possible cool environment.
3. Do not use any cosmetic or other products.
Rash should go away in seven days.

Hope this answers your query.

Take care.
