Rashes

Should I be concerned about my baby’s rash?

Our Daddy MD Guide’s reply: Parents often ask about infantile rashes/skin changes. It is common for these rashes to come and go at will. A baby’s immune system is being bombarded by many allergens, viruses and bacteria from the air and surfaces. It is normal to see a baby’s skin change on a daily, even hourly, basis. Don’t sweat it. Ask your family physician or pediatrician questions if any rashes persist.
