Suggest medication for recurrent rashes on a baby

Hi, my Son who's 1 year and a month old is experiencing on and off rashes, it atarted last Friday when I let him eat 1 spoon of fish. We went to the hospital yesterday and he was given antihistamine, after 2 hours the rashes was gone but it came back again last night and earlier this morning. Some says, it might be because of the weather. We're not really sure. Please help. He's taking meds right now, suggested by his pediatrician to take for 3 days

Hi,

According to your complaints it seems to an allergic reaction probably to the fish. I would recommend you to continue with the anti-histamine as the rashes might take 7-10 days to settle.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
