  • it kind of looks like bruising. ringworm popped into my mind first. poor kiddo personally if it is spreading like that i might wait an hour and see what happens in an hour and if you can see it spread i would be going to the ER tonight. good luck though!!

  • My ds has had horrible rashes and the prescription cream wasn't working then I had some body dew after shower oil by slumber parties I have been bathing him every night and using that after his bath its been one week and his rash the covered 90% of his body is gone. She may need an oil slathered on her it surely help my ds

  • That looks a bit like eczema my son had, and it never bothered him either even though it looked awful. It certainly could be something else, but if you want to try it, the treatment for eczema is just lots of moisture - good quality lotion, several times a day. If you start this now, it should start looking better by monday (at least, not getting worse!) I like Aveeno lotion. Eucerin is a good one too.

  • It looks like the same thing that my son had. It started out on his face and spread to his back and legs and arms. It looks as if it may be a fungal infection, I would take her into see her dr asap.
