Jan 30 - update
The rash still isn't gone. The doctor finally called me back and said "Gee... maybe it's fungal. Try Lotrimin for a week, if it's not gone, come back in." Ok... guess we'll try that. At least it's not bothering her.

Jan 21st - initial post
My four year old has always had dry skin. But, she likes running around in dresses no matter the temperature. So, we just try to put lotion on it and hope for the best. Well, about 6 weeks ago, she developed a rash on one of her arms. Red a little bumpy, she said it didn't bother her, I haven't seen her itching at it. So, I took her to the doctor last week and she said it was eczema and gave her a prescription for Hydrocortisone Ointment. Told me to put it on her 3x a day for 5 days and then to bathe her every other day and immediately put Eucerin on her when she gets out. She said the rash should be gone in 2 days, but to use it for 5 and anytime she broke out. This was Thursday, we filled it Friday and there hasn't been any change in the rash. Should I bring her back to the doctor? Or just keep on the medicine? Tomorrow will be 5 days. Any ideas?
Oh, I haven't changed anything (same laundry detergent, soap, cleaners, foods, etc). We did move in a new house, but it's brand new and the rash actually started a few days before we moved in.
Thanks!

I'm so sorry about your daughters rash! Did the Lotrimin help any?

No. I don't think it's helping any, however it's only been a couple days. She did tell me it's itchy now. Didn't seem to bother her before. But, over the weekend, she's told me that a few times.

Sorry about your daughters rash. Eczema can be quite itchy. I have to trim my daughters nails every other day so that she won't claw herself up! Hope the cream starts working soon. Keep us posted!

I took Jaedyn back to a new pediatrician yesterday. He said it looked like contact dermititis (not sure what that is, need to look it up online). He prescribed Betamethasone Dipropionate cream to put on it for 2 weeks and then let it go for 2 weeks. I feel like these doctors are guessing and I wouldn't be so bothered except it itches her now and it looks blah. Doesn't seem to be spreading or contagious. Just yucky. So, we'll see if this works...
Maybe I should have her see a dermatologist????

An example of contact dermatitis-my daughter has it. She is allergic to the buttons on her jeans (nickel). She would get a nasty rash under her belly button that would never go away. Finally the specialist told me about her being allergic to nickel. The trick was to paint all of her buttons with fingernail polish. Rash went away and never came back. Where is the rash?

out of curiosity-does she have any food allergies?

The rash is on her arm, right above her elbow, her elbow and right below her elbow. That's the only place. The doctor asked if she was on her elbows a lot, but she isn't and it's only one arm, not both. It must be something, but I'm not sure what. That's for the example. I'll keep my eyes open. She's not allergic to anything that we know of Although, it must be something.
