The condition of the skin of your child is often a good signifier of their health, and many symptoms of diseases show themselves upon it. Perhaps that rash is a disease, maybe heat rash or an allergy? In the guide below you will find a description of different signs and possible causes. If you child has a fever, the rash expands quickly, or you just don't trust the rash - contact your GP.
White spots with a red dot on the inside of the cheeks, spots on the face, neck and body, and over time maybe very red skin.
Scarlet spots on the face and behind the ears, which later spread over the body.
A tongue with a white coating, which becomes red and swollen after a few days. Pink skin with red rough bumps all over, especially under the armpits. After a few weeks, the skin may shed.
Red cheeks with symmetrical reddish spots. The rash spreads to the trunk, arms, and legs. Sometimes there may be so many spots that the whole skin is almost reds. Symptoms disappear after about 10 days.
Small pale red spots on the trunk and, to a lesser degree, in the face. The rash does not fade and disappears within one or two days. Stains in the throat that occur on the fourth day of infection in the majority of patients
Red spots that are clearer when the child comes out of bed or out of bath. Usually on the chest, back, buttocks
Red spots over the body, even in the mouth, in the hair, and on the eyelids. By scratching or rubbing on clothes the spots can burst. After a few days the blisters dry into crusts. After an average of two weeks the crusts are gone
Small red spots sometimes filled with pus. These spots always expand (often ring-shaped) until much of the skin is underneath. When the wounds break out, a yellow crust is formed. The outer edges are the most itchy while the center of the wound is restored.
Purple-red (sometimes pointed) spots that can not be "squeezed" on the trunk, arms and legs and / or the ocular mucosa
Dry pale pink spots, slightly flaky, sometimes small blisters or bumps.
Wet spots on the skin that resemble dew drops.
Always check with your doctor if you have a fever. Your GP can assess the outcome and any other symptoms and make the correct diagnosis.
