Skin Rash

My child is 15 mo old with a very bad rash on his face only (mainly around his mouth). I've tried switching to a different milk, even dry milk; switched to a sippy cup with silicone lid vs. latex; tried to figure out if a certain food is causing the red rash by process of elimination but no luck so far. It seems to get better and then it comes back again...no matter what I do. The rash doesn't seem to bother my son but looks awful. This just started about 6 wks ago. Any ideas?

Dear PatrioticBandit,

Have you taken your son to see his pediatrician? It is possible it could be a contact dermatitis, or an allergy, but it could also be a possible yeast infection. The only way to know is to see your child's doctor.

Best,

Dr. Evans
