Rash On Baby After Fever

With my daughter, it was like a heat rash. Clara got heat rashes pretty often during her first year. The best thing for me was to keep all of her clothes off and put powder on her. I would rub the powder on my hands first so it wouldn't poof into the air and her breath it in. Then I'd rub in on her back and on her legs and butt. Since she's been about a year old, we haven't had very many rash problems. And her fevers never get severe enough to produce a rash. I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it started to spread rapidly and didn't go away in a couple of days. If the rash itself seems to be bothering the baby even after the fever is gone, then I would ask the doctor.

    I don't remember any of mine getting a rash with a fever, though I am sure they did. I remember heat rashes in the summer time and stripping them down to a diaper and giving them a bath, but that's about it. It usually went away.
