When he was born, he had various rashes which cleared up eventually.
Then at about a year old, he began getting bobbly skin at the top of his legs and arms. DH has keratosis pilaris, so we assumed it was this and mainly ignored it.
It got redder and spread so it is now covering most of his limbs but none elsewhere. Rather than just being bobbly, it is very red and almost looks like loads of little spots (much smaller than Molloscum). One thigh is particularly bad and absolutely covered.
We went to the doctor about four months ago and he said maybe eczema. We tried all the creams he gave us, but it has only worsened. We have changed our washing powder with no change etc too. We went back to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and he called in a colleague as he had never seen a rash like it. They said it seemed nearest to keratosis pilaris but that shouldn't be so red and spreading in this way.
They have given us more hydrating creams and hydrocortisone which are making no difference.
The rash doesn't seem to bother DS but it is massively unsightly. Wondered if anyone had any inspiration?
Hi Ruby, I'm bumping this because my DS has a very similar rash and I was wondering if you'd seen anyone yet. DS has had it mildly on belly and thighs for about ten days then the last few days it has spread to his arms and the rest of his legs and is a lot redder. Just starting on his back and one cheek now . Absolutely no other symptoms!
We saw the GP on Tuesday and he thinks it's a non-specific viral rash but it was still only on his belly then.
