My 10 month old developed a small rash on his cheek when he was 5 months old, and it developed into a huge rash that covered his entire cheak. Then another small dot developed on the other cheek a few months later, and then that turned out to cover his entire cheek as well. I see a couple of other small red dots on his face and I just know that those will spread too. I took him to emergency twice, and they diagnosed him with hydrocreme but it isn't doing anything. He is going to see a skin specialist soon. But until his appointment next month, I do not know what I can do to sooth his itching, it pusses and bleeds. It gets crusty on the surface. He is now breaking out with clusters on his Arms, legs, and back. I see that it will be getting worse all over his body now just like it did on his face. I give him baths all the time so that dirt doesn't infect it more. I use the cremes that the doctors prescribe, I tried some of my own remedies, but nothing is just not working. Any suggestions anybody?
