Hi
Thanks for posting your query on HCM.
I have read and understood your concern.
The rashes you describe may be caused by:
-Staph skin infection
-Viral skin infection like measles, varicella
-Allergy
I will advise you see the Pediatrician for examination as the exact cause of her symptoms may only be known after examination by the Doctor.In the meantime, bathing the child with an anti-septic solution like cyteal may help.
Hope this will help.You may write back if more concerns.
Best regards

Dr Mbuomboh
