Pediatrician 's  Response
hello sir/madam,
I am highly concerned of your daughter having rash in upper body. As it has developed over last few months period and dryness of skin, indicate that rash is probably allergic in nature. You should apply plenty of moisturiser after having completely drying the skin after bath. Of course anti histaminic drugs, and calamine lotion application are useful after consulting your pediatrician. Hope your daughter achieves speedy recovery. Thank you.
