  • Try benedryl cream. If the benedryl doesn't clear it up or if it spreads further, go to your dr. He may need to be put on steroids to clear it up.

  • I took him to the dr yesterday when I saw the rash. She had me cortizone cream on it to help with the itching. but the wierd thing is that he does not itch! He is leaving it alone. He is also on an anitbotic b/c she thought it might be infected! He is worse taking the oral antibotic! So far so good on no spreading! Thank you for responding!
