My 3 year old son, who is potty trained has a rash on his behind near his anal area. We just noticed it today. What possibly could it be and can we get something over the counter to stop the itching? Also if you have an idea what it may be, what are some possible symptoms?

Hello how are you dr . Thank you for this service. I had suspicions that my son ( 10 years old) is involved in anal sex. I note stool discharge in his pants and abnormal behavior, he is denying and resisting me. is it possible to diagnose his case by medical examination of the anal area? probably he has some fissure. Really I am sad for my son. I don t know what to do. please help

Hi Doctor, My 8 months old son has been having loose motion since last Saturday. He had sever diaper rashes which has now reduced to some extent. Last Wednesday he had high temperature in the night (102 degree F) after which we started Tylenol. From Friday, he started developing rashes all over his body including his face. His fever has come down, but all the remaining symptoms are still there. Please advice what could be the cause for this.

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!

My kid has got nappy rash because after using Augmentine and caused loose motion after that. Now its nearly 7 days. Doctor advised keep the area clean and apply baby cream. And gave a cream to apply only in night. As I can remember the name its Dapoline. Since its not worked and rash got increased I went another doctor and she gave me candid b cream. and told apply it 3- 4 times. I used only twice now. Is apply this 4 times is good . Because kid is still 1 year and 8 months.

I have a rash in random places on my body. Around my breast and sporadically on my torso. A few spots on my back and now I noticed between my butt cheeks? I ve had shingles in the past so this DOES NOT look like that. I took my valtrex just in case out of concern. Any thoughts on this rash? I have a diaper rash cream and I m getting ready to take a bleach bath. I don t have a primary care right now, but could see my OB if you think I need a prescription cream.
