Rash due to smoking weeds is very rare. you have described the rash as red bumps. I want to know the duration ie when it resolved? If it is resolving in hours then it can be a urticaria. mostly caused by some food or external environment. Antihistamines like cetrizine will be of great help.

My son is two months old. He has been having problems with constipation, distended abdomen and partial rectal prolapse since he was born. He also has a red bumpy rash all over his face and head which seems to get worse after he eats. We had him on nutrimigen for three weeks which did not work and now we have him on similac alemintum which he has been on for about two weeks. He still has not improved at all. Do you think he could be lactose intolerant?

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?
