It may sometimes occur that you will notice Baby Rash on Legs. Just like we have mentioned on our previous pages you will be able to identify the kind of rash that is on your baby’s legs. We will help you not only identify the rash on your baby legs but also suggest causes and remedies for baby rash on legs.
You have to remember that the skin of your baby is very sensitive. You have to keep in mind the environment, the weather, the clothes your baby is wearing, the lotion that you are using, the cream that you are putting on your baby’s skin.
Look for the Cause of Rash on Baby Legs:
Any of the above-mentioned items like creams, lotions, or clothing type may react with the skin of your baby. Sometimes parents will buy a cream or lotion that is not suitable for their baby’s skin. You may not know or recognize the type of your baby skin.
So, first of all, determine the type of your baby’s skin. Secondly, make sure that the clothes that you are making your baby wear are not made of a material to which your baby is allergic. You also have to take into consideration the detergent that you use to wash your baby’s clothes.
Well, so know that you have ruled out all the external causes of rash on your baby legs. Turn your attention towards the weather, is it too cold, too hot, humid or dry. If you do not take proper care of your baby while the weather is changing or when it is too harsh, not only rash will appear on your baby’s skin but may be accompanied by mild fever, cough or cold. The next thing you should do is make sure nothing like such has happened, take your baby’s temperature using a thermometer; don’t just rely on your sense of touch.
Treatment for Baby Rash on Legs:
If there is no fever or signs of cold etc. let’s concentrate on the rash itself. As it is a rash on legs the first thing to see is if it is a diaper rash or not. As we have mentioned earlier diaper rash starts appearing between the thighs of your baby, around the privates. It looks reddish, bumpy or blistered and sometimes it is sensitive to touch if you touch it your baby will respond, may start crying or give you some kind of visual indication that it is sensitive. If it is a diaper rash click here to find causes of diaper rash and here you will find treatments for diaper rash.
If it’s not Diaper Rash, it may be baby heat rash often called as Sweat Rash or Prickly Heat Rash. The cause of heat rash is simple, heat. In summers or using more layers of clothing than necessary or just that the humidity is high will result in Heat Rash on your baby’s body. Just losing some layers of clothing and using light baby prickly heat powder you can get rid of Sweat Rash. We recommend using these prickly heat powders.
Eczema is next one on the list. We are mentioning eczema baby rash here because it appears on the inside of knees and as our topic of discussion is rash on baby legs eczema cannot be ignored. Well, others may say Eczema can recover or heal on its own we do recommend a visit to your baby’s doctor. Let him take a look at it and if it is Eczema doctor will definitely prescribe something for it and if not well he will tell you what it is 🙂
In conclusion please keep your baby clean, use only those products which are meant for babies only and that your baby is not allergic to. Keep the skin of your baby dry and most of the time baby rashes go away on its own but if it doesn’t consult your pediatrician or dermatologist or you can contact us as well.
