Please help me.. My son (18 months) has the same issue, but it's not only on his stomach, it's everywhere - even on his face. He has no fever though, he's eating well and playing too.. I thought it was the soap I used on him (I tried out a new soap); but now i'm not sure because I never used soap on his face..
I am using Tetmosol soap on him (it was prescribed by the GP last time he had a rash) and Epimax cream. And I'm also giving him 5ml of Allergex 3 times a day. I plan to monitor him till Friday, if no improvement by then straight to the GP.. Am I making the right choice???

If she spikes a fever---definitely see ur doctor......otherwise a lot of time just a phone call to them will help relieve ur concern..........my son had something similar, it was eczema, my daughter had what looked the same, it was a heat rash........rashes just vary.......but FEVER and RASH--->uber important to get checked

Hi there, My son had a similar rash appear just after turning one. Took him to the dr and was told it was a viral infection that will go with time. Sometimes when a child is run down also they tend to come up in a type of viral rash. As she has no other symptoms like a fever etc then i wouldnt worry. If it is there still in a week or so take her to the Dr. Have you done the glass test ? honestly if you are concerned then take her to the dr :-) Good luck.

It could be roseola or cocksacky which are childhood viruses that cause rashes on various parts of a childs body. I remember both my kids had them and I was really freaked about it until my doctor looked at them and pegged the diagnosis. Your doc will be able to tell you for sure. good luck.

My daughter who would have been 2 at the time had similar on her body.But hers were like little pimples which turned into eczema went to specialist now all gone hopefully dosent return.Look it could be a number of things ,keep an eye on it for the next couple of days and if it still hasnt cleared up the l would get her looked at.

If it's at her pants line it could probably just be a heat rash. If she's pretty active sweat can get trapped and cause a little rash. I wouldn't treat it unless it gets really bad or if the doctor says it's something to worry about.
