My 5 month old is getting rash like pimples all over is face. I have been told this could be because of teething, but it is all the way up around his eyes and on his forehead. Is this a teething rash?

My son is 5 and half months old. He has red rashes all over his face and body. This has been a common problem since his very first month. It goes away and returns again in severe form. I am feeling so helpless seeing my little baby suffering so much. What can i do now?

yes, about 3 weeks ago we gave him some rice cereal and he became constipated. so we gave him wheat cereal for a few days. I then read he shouldnt have wheat yet so we gave him barley and we were still having problems with constipation. I saw a different doctor and he said wait until6 months and try again. He has been only breatsfed for about 4 days now and I have not seen any improvements.

Hi , it sound like a teething rush or a heat rush maybe, take your child to see a doctor if that concern.cheers

It could be baby acne. Both my daughters had it and it went away on its own. I just washed their faces with a cool, damp cloth and no cleanser.

It's a fairly normal thing for a lot of babies, but if you are really concerned then take your baby into your doctor to check to see if it is something else.

Here is a link to more info on baby acne (causes, treatment, etc) for you:
