Hi my name is Danielle. I have a 8 month old baby who I believe is trying to cut her first teeth (the bottom) and all of a sudden has this red itchy diaper rash. The diaper rash has been there for about 4 days now. Well, yesterday while making dinner I noticed she had started itching at the neck line under her chin. Later on I noticed it was really red from the scratching and took her onesie off and noticed these little tiny red bumps all over her tummy and back very little on the arms and legs. Last night she woke me up at 1:10 in the morning and has been awake ever since it's now 8 a.m. The rash was very red and irritated when she woke. But it gets really warm in our room at night. It seems all of the rash is very itchy for her. My question is is this rash a part of her teething? Cause I have heard that diaper rash and a skin rash appear in some infants that are teething.
Thanks. I'm kinda freaking out and feel really bad for her. So a response would be very helpful.View Thread
