My 3 year old dd has always had a very light pink area on her lower back...where the band of her pants sit. Just a small area. Never bothered her. The past week, out of nowhere, it is a big area now and got really red and a little bumpy. She said it was itchy. I put some hydrocortisone cream on it, and within a few days, it looked much better. I have been using it 3 times a day, but late yesterday afternoon, it got red again. Obviously, the cream is working, but maybe not good enough? She only complains it is itchy when it starts to turn red again. I have been giving her an oatmeal bath, and tried benedryl. I am waiting on the drs to open at 9 to call to get her seen, just wanted to see here. Who deals with eczema. Does it sound like it could be? I have never had to deal with any rash like this. She has had no new foods, no different detergent or anything like that has changed. It just came out of nowhere. Disclaimer: No, I am not seeking medical advice here, before anyone says. Yes, I am calling her ped, as I mentioned. Just wanted to see if it sounds like something like eczema to anyone. I need to do some reading on it. Dh brought it up...I know nothing about it. And of course, the day I plan to take her in, it looks really good at the time. Lol. I took pictures to show him though, so he can see.
