second opinion neded ? for toddler rash condition ( viral)


Posted by jrgoll

my 2 year old toddler is experiencing persistent skin rash on stomach and, arms & thighs, similar to chicken pox, but without pus pockets. he has abdominal pain after eating and has sporadic diahrrea.  my pediatrician took a blood sample & determined it viral with no specific diagnosis.  he promised it would dissipate with a BRAT diet and a regimen of Zyrtec, but here I am, 3.5 weeks later with sustained symptoms, shall I seek a dermatologist?, or am I better served to simply wait this out?  I just hate to see my child itchy and miserable
