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.

My little chihuahua has had bad diarrhea since yesterday...she was up all night and had 1 firm white stool all the other spots were brown very runny stool. The only change I have made this week is adding burts bees ointment to a rash on her belly she had been scratching and bitting at. I googled using the burts bees prior to putting it on her and it said it was safe for dogs. Last year she had the same rash and I used bag balm ointment ..they were out thats why i switched. Will she be ok?
