Rash

11/03/2008

Question:

First it started with my daughter a pimple like dot rash on her butt back and some on her legs. Then my Fiance got it all over started on his inner thighs and spread all over his body except his face now im starting to get it. a few on my back arms chest stomach and legs and feet my daughters started to clear up and now is all over her except for face. We haven`t changed anything in detergents or soaps or any kind of chemical i can think of. What could it be?

Answer:

The fact that the rashes seem to be spreading to different people suggests that it is contagious. Scabies or staph infections could be responsible. You should consult your doctor at this point.
