thanks for writing

some details are missing in your query

can you please tell me if your kid is having any itching
what is the color of the rash.........are they red spots or is it raised above the skin

were any investigations done

from the treatment i presume that the treating doctor might have made diagnosis of allergic dermatits

if there is no improvement please get the child examined by a pediatrician for further action
