My daughter, who is living with in me in France, has had a rash around her anus for the past 3 weeks. The doctor first diagnosed her with what the French call "muguet" (a sort of fungal infection caught by the mouth that infects the digestive tube and produces eczema around the mouth and rash around the gential area). The treatment is slowly helping. In the past 3 days she has begun coughing. It is like a mucuous cough. Does anyone think this is serious or perhaps showing warning signs of a more serious illness. I have already been to the doctor twice for the rash. Thanks for any advice.

Hi,

I'm sorry, I hope your little one feels better soon!
This might be a good question for our Parenting Community, there is a health care professional there, Dr. Adesman.

I hope that helps!
