to me, it looks like eczema. but i was told that my daughters eczema (at 2 months old) was heat rash by her pediatrician.

Dylan loves school and anything to do with learning (counting, reading & math). This spring he started another season of soccer, as well as playing Tee Ball for the first time. He new favorite toys are Transformers & WWE Wrestling figurines. He loves to color and be artistic. He's currently finishing Kindergarten.

Delaney has eczema due to allergies. She's Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free, Peanut-Free & Citrus Fruits-Free. She's lefty and the rest of us in the house are righty. She loves Yo Gabba Gabba, Pinocchio, Princess Snow White, Aurora, Belle & Care Bears. We're currently working on potty training, but it's not going well......

Okay, it does look like a heat rash. In sections. But being that it is all over her body, it may possibly be eczema.

Our dermatologist recommended CeraVe lotion when our insurance didn't cover the Mimyx he originally prescribed and using Cetaphil cleanser.

Its defiantely looking like eczema to me. Is she being b/f or formula? Have you been able to tell if it gets worse after she eats? She is beautiful by the way, congratulations and I love her name!!!

Agreeing it looks like eczema... it could be a skin reaction to laundry detergent or any cream if you use a cream on her if it isn't caused by a food.
