Reasons for baby having a spotty rash

My daughter's skin got spotty rashes when she was younger from eating orange foods, like carrots or sweet potatoes. Strange, huh? That doesn't happen too often now that she's in her toddler years, but she does get spotty rashes from dry skin instead. We treat her with lotion and eczema bath products.

    The doctor actually said that since the rash didn't seem to actively bother her, the nutrient benefits of those foods outweighed the risk of the rash. I was surprised, but we kept offering them to her, and she eventually outgrew the rash...and the liking of those foods altogether, unfortunately!
      my children never got a spotty rash from eating range foods... although if they ate too many of them their skin would turn a orange tint! LOL!
