  • I'm not a doctor, but perhaps you should seek professional, medical advice. If you are freaking out why didn't you call the doctor today.

  • I agree. Call the Dr.'s office and have them advise you of what to do. Make note if you have started using anything new recently, like laundry detergent, baby shampoo, lotion, etc. It may be contact dermatitis, but you should have a doctor diagnose your child.

  • Um, doctor would be a better bet than a website full of people who are not doctors.

  • Call and describe the rash to a nurse at your pediatrician's office. He or she will tell you if you should make an appointment or how to treat the symptoms at home.
