My 4 Year Old Daughter Has a Rash with Raised Bumps on Her Bottom.
My 4 year old daughter has a rash with raised bumps on her bottom. She says it does not itch but there are even bumps around her bottom hole? It looks horrible, any advice??

Another possibility ... does she wear a pullup at night? It could be diaper rash. If you rule out a virus, try using diaper creme or after bath letting the air on it before bedtime.
Best of luck.

This is how Coxsackie virus presented in my 1.5 year old. I would watch them for blistering and check the inside of her mouth/throat for developing sores.

I would take her to the doctor and have him look at it.

Is your daughter night-trained? That is, does she wear some sort of diaper at night? If so, when she urinates it might pool around her bottom until it is absorbed. And however quickly it is absorbed, it's still there next to her skin the rest of the night. I had a similar issue with my daughter. What worked was to start wiping her with a wet wipe every morning before dressing for the day.
Also, I've begun waking her in the night to go to the bathroom.
HTH and if something wasn't clear or if you have a question for me, please don't hesitate to email.
