The most important thing that you can do for your child is to help them avoid scratching the rash. Most rashes can cause itchiness for your child, which will cause them to feel the need to scratch at their skin. One of the best ways to keep a child from scratching a rash is to apply a cold compress to it. You can also put calamine lotion on the rash to help relieve itching as well.

Most rashes, including chickenpox and the measles, have no specific treatment to help them go away faster. For the most part, it is best to treat the symptoms that your child is suffering from. Many children also suffer from issues, such as fever or cough when they have a rash because a rash can often be a sign of another illness. If this is the case, make sure that you treat the symptoms that they are having so that they can heal comfortably.
