Dear MIMsters: My Son’s Affliction is Killing me

My little son who is a year and two months old has such a sensitive skin. I’ve noticed this ever since I gave birth to him. He keeps going from one kind of rash to another. I really can’t remember anytime my son’s skin has been ever free of rash but this particular affliction is killing me.

These rashes are very small but each one has a pus in it. It’s very itchy and painful too. There is nothing I have not tried like baby tribotan, cloritomazole creams etc. The doctor even gave me medications; injections, creams and antibiotics that actually worked for some time but they always return.

I have used native soaps and concoction. I even tried changing his soaps, sponges and towels. I now use only all Chico products for him because I was told they help in keeping rashes at bay but no improvement yet. I have given antibiotics prescribed by doctors, some by friends and family, some of them just work for sometime and before I say, “Jack Robinson,” it’s back. The pic I attached is just on his butt but this rash is all over. I mean it can appear anywhere even on his head.

Dear Mimsters, I only want a solution that will free my son from this affiliction. This whole thing is driving me crazy, I am so sick and tired of it.

  • I will advise you to see a dermatologist in a Teaching hospital cos am very sure the boy will be going through a lot of pain. I wish him quick recovery, and may the balm of Gilead completely heal him.

    • You need to see a pediatrician in General or Teaching Hospital, I experienced the same with my Son,When i met a Pediatrician he said its Impetigo,he was given an antibiotics and cream.That ends it.

  • So sorry. I had d same issue with my very light skinned son. The rashes could be very large n filled with pus or come in tiny clusters. Extremely painful cos i contracted one from him so i know. Its staph skin infection and comes on and off with very high fever.

    I tried EVERYTHING. GENERAL PLUS TEACHING HOSPITALS IN LAGOS AND CALABAR. We were given several antibiotics orally n intravainously n muscularly, no solution. One day out of let me say divine inspiration i applied, as in rubbed antibiotics (the type u mix with water n give to drin)all over him when he had one such outbreak and that was it.

    I kuku mixed flagyl, red n yellow capsule plus septrin with white chalk (nzu) with zinat to rub him. That took care of it. He is two now and has been free for over a year.

  • Please try biocoten cream mixed wit bactobarn or jus bicoten, its a very strong cream n kiping using it 4 some days after it clears, give him augmentin, f
    arzincol, piriton( to help him wit d itches)pls use sebamed soap n cream for baby. Its vry good. Always cover ur baby wen u go out.I Pray GOD Almighty will heal him, it cn be so frustating n heartbreaking. I used herbal stuff but it worsen. Remba to be careful wit drugs bcos of hs liver
