A rash in the baby all over the body
The reasons for the appearance of rashes in children are many, try to list the main of them and understand what it is related to and how to behave to parents.
The most common reason for a rash in the child all over the body appears is an allergic reaction. Most often it occurs for food.

And what to do in the event that before the baby was absolutely healthy, but suddenly became covered with a rash? We need to understand what foods have appeared in the baby's diet. Most often, allergies are caused by exotic fruits, seafood and vegetables. And you can cook the usual dish in a different way, adding a new ingredient in it or overdo it with spices. Ask the child what he ate. Pocket money for children satisfies their desire to eat chips, and then grab it with a tangerine. Or maybe a bottle of soda and a kilogram of chocolates, eaten with friends, give such a reaction?
Distribute with allergies rash in the child throughout the body or in some individual places can very quickly. The stains may be irregular in shape, they can merge together and strongly itch. The child himself can be either too excited or lethargic. But in most cases the condition remains the same, only the baby starts to itch.
