My poor 20 month old has come down with scarlet fever. Barely able to eat and drink as his throat is so sore but his main cause for upset is the rash
He is barely sleeping as he's so itchy (it's mainly around his buttocks so made worse with a nappy)
Is there anything I can do or give him for this rash as everything else is manageable! We've tried calamine lotion but doesn't really do it.
Last night he was up every hour crying and scratching at his bottom and this morning we are all wrecks
Do the ABs combat the rash too and how quickly? I've read the rash can last over a week and I would hate for him to be in this discomfort for that long!
Thanks so much
