Not sure what to do...

Off we go again to the doc for baby girl...everytime I think I have her rash under control it flares back up. Her whole body is covered now. My poor girl.

    oh poor baby. Is she allergic to something you're eating maybe?

      Have you tried a baking soda bath? Just about 2 Tbsp baking soda and water with no added shampoos or soaps.

        I have tried those...I'm sure it is an allergy I just can't figure out what it is.

          :( poor babe and momma. You could try keeping a food journal.. Once it clears up mostly at least, write down what you eat, if her rash gets worse within the next day or two, you'll know what.

            Doc suggested the food journal. I'm pretty sure it's either eggs or apple juice. He did confirm what I thought though. She has the yeast infection rash on the back of her neck and diaper area, plus she has heat rash, an allergic reaction rash and cradle cap. Plus he said there are spots of the rash that look like the start if eczema. The poor girl is a mess!

            My son had that for a long time. I have not seen any flare ups anymore. They stopped when he was about 12-13 months old. I used Baby Aveeno Eczema because it doesn't have steroids in it, which can irritate the skin. It worked better than what the dermatologist prescribed. He would get it on his arms and face really bad.

            For the cradle cap, I used one of those loofa sponges (they are scrunched up into a ball) and used Aveeno baby wash. It went away and never came back after a few washes. I did it each time I bathed him. Laura N. suggested that to me (the one with six boys).

            Bless her little heart. I hope it goes away soon.

              Oh poor thing. :( For the yeast a little bit of apple cider vinegar in her bath water will help until you can get the cause figured out.

              egg subs: 2 TBSP applesauce+1tsp baking soda or 2 TBSP banana+1tsp baking soda.. I know there's more but that's all I've experimented with because that's the baby food I've had on hand. It's worked for everything but waffles. :)

              I'm hoping it's not food allergies! But my husband is allergic to a lot of fruits because he's allergic to anything to acidic. Doc said a lot of it looks like heat rash, which I some is because it's been hot and we have no A/C but it's been cool for days and she still has it. The bad thing is that it's going to be in the 90's by this weekend here. I see a lot of trips to Grandmas house in our near future! Lol

              I hope it's not food allergies, too. We had to buy a box fan and put Grace in front of it, lots of dresses to keep her cool. Last summer she played with cold wash rags all the time to keep her cool.

                  I think we finally have a few of the rash issues cleared up. The heat rash, that is just going to keep happening right now cause it's so hot. I think with the other rashes they are getting better though thankfully.
