When is a child's rash something to be concerned about?
Dr. Kenner-Bell explains that eczema (often red, itchy, and scaly) is quite common, but when left untreated it can become infected with bacteria and possibly even the herpes virus. Most cases of eczema can be treated with dry skincare products or a topical steroid and more serious cases might need antibiotics or antiviral medications.
If a child has dandruff, also called seborrheic dermatitis (often it will be dry, itchy, and flakey), it can usually be treated with medicated shampoos, creams, and lotions.
She notes dandruff can look a lot like ringworm on the scalp (this condition will usually be redder, inflamed, and more swollen) and this will need to be treated with oral antifungal medications.
As always, if you or your child has a concerning skin issue, please consult with your healthcare provider.
