A rash complaint Part 1 (Teacher: Michael)

Skin rashes are common cause for worry among young mothers. Yet they are often nothing much to be concerned about. One of most common rashes is probably ordinary heat rash. Although usually occurs in warmer weather, it can occur in cold if child is overdressed.

Heat rashes usually begin on cheeks, shoulders, skin creases and bottom, and consist of tiny red spots. Blonde or red-headed children seem most likely to suffer.

The first thing to do is cool sufferer by sponging with tepid water and removing some clothes. It is also useful to sprinkle little powder onto rash.

Nappy rashes are very common too. They tend to be red, rough and rather scaly. They're usually confined to area covered by nappy.

They are generally produced by contact between urine and skin, but are sometimes caused by friction of skin against nappy.

Once nappy rash has developed, it helps expose rash to air as much as possible. Most chemists will stock creams which can help relieve itchiness for baby.

Allergy rashes seem to be getting more common these days.
