Rash (cluster of small bumps)

my daughter (10 months old) has had 3 rashes so far and they all look the same. one on her forehead and 2 on her back . the dr told me it was just a simple rash cuz something irritated her skin. they are a cluster of small bumps, usually its pinkish, just wondering if anyone has seen the same sort of rash on their baby and if so,,, did u figure out what was causing it? they last pretty long too. like a few weeks before it dissapears

  • It sounds like eczema to me. My son has this. We use Aveeno eczema cream and it works great for him! GL!

  • We have dealt with alot of skin rashes . . . went through allergy testing and found out my daughter is allergic to potato. We used to use shredded cheese, but I come to find out that stuff is covered in potato flour!

    Anyways, in order to minimize her skin rashes, we avoid potato AND have to keep all the other allergens down: no scented products, frequent dusting and vacuuming, keeping her indoors while grass is being cut, etc.

  • could be eczema or just a simple rash from allergies.. most times if they are clustered and not bumps all over its from something topical, like a type of laundry soap (my brothers problem), or a bubble bath (vaseline's powder does this to me lol)
    you can get your baby tested for eczema and some skin allergies.
    but just try switching what you are using first and see if it helps

  • yea it is only about the size of a finger print every time. very small and doesnt ooze or become wet. just dry small bumps that last a while. thanks yall for the answers
