My daughter is 15 months old and has had a rash for about 3 weeks. I took her to the doctor April 29th and he thought she might have been allergic to Amoxicillan. He told me to discontinue giving it to her, which I did. The rash continued to get worse and she started itching. I called the doctor two days after our initial visit and the nurse said to start giving her Benadryl every 4-6 hours as needed. I did that for about two days and it wasn't helping so I called again. They said it was most likely viral and would have to work through her system. She said there was nothing they could do and to keep giving her Benadryl, rub her in hydrocortizone, and give her Zyrtec once a day. That was two weeks ago and he rash continues to get worse and she is itching all the time. I hate giving her Benadryl because it makes her so sleepy and she is almost a zombie. Please help me I want my baby to be happy and rash free again! Oh and just for some further information, we have not changed anything. I am very routine and when I find a product I like I never change it. Lol.
Update: We went to her doctor's appointment today and he agreed it was really bad. She is going to be taking oral steroids for one week and if that doesn't help he is going to do further testing and treat the rash as if it were scabies. Thank you for all the support and advice! I will keep everyone posted on how she is doing.
