Hi all, My 7&1/2 week olds beautiful face and part of his head is being over run by a pimpley looking red rash. Little tiny pussy whiteheads are everywhere! It doesn't seem to be fazing him too much and every other function is working normally.
Someone mentioned a hormone rash , someone else a milk rash - are these the same and is this normal? I have read in the Baby Love book that some rashes are normal - but which ones should you worry about.
What can I use to treat it or should I not treat it? I have been using Jurlique Calendula cream before it spread a lot. If this is normal how long does it last? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Peta & Hudson (with the pimpley head)
My DD (6 weeks) has the same thing. I was also worried and took her to the dr and he said it was a hormone rash and not to put anything on it but Sorbolene cream. I will go away on its own. I have also been putting Johnsons baby milk bath in her baths and he said I should never use it for some reason. For the rash he recommended EGO QV Bath oil. Hope this helps. <center><p style="background:white;"><font face="verdana,arial,sans-serif" size="1" color="black">darling daughter Madeline Grace</font><br /><a href="http://lilypie.com"><img src="http://lilypie.com/pic/050618/a501aad.jpg" alt="Lilypie Baby Pic" border="0" /><img src="http://lilypie.com/baby1/060510/2/16/1/+10" alt="Lilypie Baby Ticker" border="0" /></a></p></center>
I am experiencing the same thing with my 6 week old. A chemist said hormonal (same thing as a milk rash), one ECHNurse said newborn rash (very vague) and another said eczema. We have our 6week check tomorrow so perhaps hear something else. But all 3 said ok and not to worry, to apply heaps of sorbolene say 6 times a day. Avoid Johnsons and use QV products and ensure just cotton next to skin.
If your worried though just have someone take a squiz.
Hope bubs looking smooth and lovely soon. Renee.
