Couldn't find what you looking for?


My son is 8 months old and gets sudden red blotchy patches on his forehead, upper lip and cheeks. It comes and goes. What is this?


You should ask for a referral for a dermatologist, they will know to fix the problem. Pediatricians are usually not so good with skin disorders in children, at least that's my experience with my child. He had rashes and dry, scally skin ever since he was born and we tried many different things the pediatrician suggested. Nothing worked until we went to derm whose prescription corticosteroid made it go away in a day.

You also need a derm to say if this is just overheating, or contact dermatitis, eczema, etc

I hope everything works out well for the baby and he gets a lovely skin he deserves :-)
