Doctor did not care

I took my 3 month old daughter in for a rash on her face, thrash on her tongue, and she's throwing up her feedings more and more. I was told it was heat bumps (and it is not) I was told to burp her more and sent home. Never use this doctor, i was in the waiting room longer than with him. I was with the nurse at the front desk checking in then with the Dr.
