Question: My 1.5 year old baby is having rashes which are itching badly all over his body. We had shown a local pediatrician and he suggested is due to cold and have prescribed monticope, polyclav, tobastar. Is there any lotion like caladryl that we can use on the babies rashes because he is scratching them and getting bruised.

Brief Answer:
Caladryl or aloe vera lotion should be applied

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HelathcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through the query. The doctor has said the right thing and the medicines are proper. It is advisable to apply caladryl or some emollient like aloe vera lotion. You can feel free to apply them.
