I have a 22 month old with a strange looking 'rash', I'm not even sure it's a rash. I took her to the pediatrician and he said it's eczema and he said to put a heavy cream on it. I left the office and thought to myself - does itchiness always accompany eczema? She has not scratched once and does not seem the least bit bothered by it. She doesn't even know it's there.
For as long as I can remember she had a tiny dry patch of skin on her arm. I never thought to look into it since it really wasn't visible and it didn't bother her. I kind of forgot it was there. About a week or so, I noticed she developed a rash like appearance to it, but it still looks dry and still not itchy. It's light in color and almost flat and the shape is bigger than a quarter, but not a perfect circle. The edges seem to be pinkish. I noticed a small area on the opposite arm, very tiny spot.
Does this sound like eczema? I asked the doc if it could be something she is eating and he thought that the reaction would be much worse.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
