    Does she appear in distress? Could just be a prickley heat rash, which there's really nothing to be done about it. Just continue to monitor it. NOW, if she develops a fever, starts scratching, develops shortness of breath, it spreads ect...then take her to the ER. IF it's just the rash and it doesn't go away by Monday then by all means take her to the appt.

    No new detergents or food....She has had it for about 4 days now...I thought at first it was a heat rash but i dont think so..However for the last couple of day she has been spitting up her milk at least 2 times a day sometimes maybe more..she has had the same formula since birth..

    It could be the start of eczema. Jackson's started off looking like a heat rash but as the weeks went on, it just got worse and worse....Has she had a fever any lately? If so, could be roseola.

    My daughter is 6 months old and has already had 2 rashes. The 1st was roseola. It started with a fever for a few days then she had the rash for two days. But if she doesnt have a fever, I dont that it is. The 2nd rash she had was a side effect from an antibotic she was on for a double ear infection! The doctor had me give her a bath in the Aveeno Oatmeal Bath to help calm it down.

    jacksons didnt bother him until it was to the point of seeping etc. You could try some OTC creams like Aveeno stuff, California baby (tho i think u have to order it offline), uhm some Aquaphor. Jacksons was really bad tho so he needed a steroid cream at first and then the aquaphor afterwards. Maybe try some of those to see if it clears up?

    You can use hydrocortisone .5% on a baby. My daughter had baby acne, and eczema when she was just 3 weeks old. They gave me a script for the hydrocortisone but you can buy it otc. It works real fast. Aquafor is awesome too! Best to put it on the area after a warm bath while the pores in the skin are still open. It will trap in the moisture. And lastly my experience with rashes like this on my children and myself- That sun is amazing for eczema. If it's not too hot and the sun isn't very strong then go outside for a little while and let the sun hit it. My daughter's eczema always clears up for summer.

    Poor thing
    I would go to your Pediatrician to see what they recommend.
    DF has eczema and gets in on his face, arms and legs..........
    Its better to have the doctor look at her though and tell you what the best thing to do is........
