Psychiatrist Dr. Jagadeesan's  Response
Many kinds of rashes happen in infants, are usually self limiting and benign (not dangerous). If the baby is otherwise normal and doing well, apply calamine lotion over them, if it does not subside or reduce in 1-2 days consult child specialist or dermatologist

My 18 month old is on Omnicef for his ear infection and just developed a fever and a rash on his face last night. He has been on antibiotics for 8 days. He was recently exposed to a child with hand, mouth and foot. He also vomited this morning. Could he have gotten hand, mouth and foot?

I am babysitting an 18 month old boy. He had a runny nose last week (somewhat normal) and a rash in the lower abdomen and diaper area with blisters that burst and red dots (no scabbing). Today the rash has spread to his thighs and upper abdomen, but no blisters so far. His pelvic area is swollen, but not his testicles or penis. No fever.
