Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My 7-year-old son is healthy, but he had skin rashes two months ago in his butt. I went to the doctor. He took a skin biopsy and a blood test. He said that it was a viral infection, and there was no treatment for that. Still, it did not go away. It comes and goes. Should I be worried about it?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Is the lesion itchy? Does he have any fever? Did he scratch and rub the lesions excessively? Is that spreading? Does he have any history of atopy or allergies? Answer the questions for details.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your reply. Yes, sometimes it is itchy, and he rubs there. He does not have a fever. It is not spreading but presents only in the butt. There were more rashes in the waist, but now it has disappeared. There is no history of atopic, but he has a history of allergies.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is an allergic rash (Atopic dermatitis). Apply Desonide cream at night for ten days. Use Miconazole cream in the evening for ten days. Take Syrup Atarax (Hydroxyzine) 2.5 ml (one spoonful) twice daily in the morning and night for seven days. Moisturize skin daily. Use Physiogel hypoallergic lotion or Cetaphil lotion or Atogla lotion in the morning and noon for ten days. Use Azac (Azelaic acid) soap for the bath for one month. Avoid known triggering factors or food allergens or environmental allergens or aeroallergens, house dust, contact with pets, and woolen clothes. Avoid scratching and rubbing of lesions. Wear loose, thin, comfortable cotton clothes. Avoid occlusive wear and friction. Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
