my 19 month had a patch on her back that to me felt like exzema, small like the size of a toonie. the next day when i picked her up from daycare it had spread up from her lower back to her armpit and was bright red blotches. i took her to the hospital b/c i had never seen anything like that. the doctor told me it was ring worm and gave some antifungal cream. she went to her dads for the weekend, and the rash is now moved from under her armpit and to the whole right side of her chest. the spots are not is circles..some are blotchy some look like a rash. she has a cough and runny nose as well...all of this for a week and a half now....the cream and the penicilin. any thoughts on what else this might be???

  • Well, check at the daycare and see if the other kids have anything. It could be scabies. Baby could be getting re-infected...baby needs to see another doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
