Patient :My newborn of 1 month has this rash all over his face. His pediatrician said it is seborrhea dermatitis and apply cortisone sparingly. After using the medication, the rash has spread to his scalp, butt, legs, chest and hands. What exactly is it? Should I take him to the ER? What can I do or use to make it less inflamed and better?
