  • A rash can't be diagnosed with out looking at it. I would take her in.
    Good luck!

  • You definitely need to call... for get what the Dr. thinks, that's his job. I would not put anything on it until you talk to the Dr. because you don't know what she is allergic to yet.

  • Your child has a rash all over. You should take her in to be evaluated. It may be nothing...it may be something. Scaly suggests eczema or psoriasis to me.
