: My dd is 13 mos. and has has a rash. I thought it was a heat rash at first, but it didn't go away and it has started looking worse. Now it looks like eczema to me, not that I'm an expert on what that is. Can eczema just occur? The only thing we've done differently is new diapers, but there is no rash on her diaper area. It's mainly on forearms, and knee area, but there is a little on torso. Thanks on any info provided. We are seeing a doc to get it checked.

It sounds like a rash caused by not scrubbing enough when bathing and pores become clogged with oil and dirt. This happened to my little boy in the same areas and I scrubbed him more with a wash cloth during bathing and put lotion on him after his daily baths and went away.
