Hello, my son 4.5 years is having red rashes on his body and face. We assumed it as measles but doctor took throat swab and it showed heavy growth of B.Hemolytic. We wanted to check what should we do should we go for another doctor for double check. Please advise.
Your sons symptoms seem to be related to a bacterial infection. I suggest using a cycle of antibiotics such as Augmentin to treat the infection. I also suggest using Calamine lotion for local application at the rash area.
Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.
