So far we really have had a good almost 10 months with very little in the way of medical problems four Eily. However, the pediatrician did note that we are lacking half her medical history which could cause some problems for her later in life.
This week I emailed the infertility clinic I used requesting more information on the donor I used. I haven't heard back. So today I called them. I was transferred to the right person and she said she'll get the information that I need and have someone contact me as soon as possible. She did ask me if it was urgent. I said yes.
Well Eily does have allergies. She does have a full body rash. It isn't going away no matter what we have applied to her. It isn't the laundry soap. We've been using the same type since before she was born on all her clothing and it is meant for her things. The only other detergent used in the washer is free of all dyes and fragrances. No fabric softeners are used on laundry.
She has been eating the same foods. No new foods were introduced around the time the rash started.
I was told by a friend, an educated friend that also has raised children, that sometimes babies just get rashes.
This rash was so mild when we saw the doctor that he didn't even notice it. We did report it to the nurse. Funny thing is that even I broke out in a rash for a few days too. No clue what caused it. I know I have really sensitive skin too. But Eily's skin is really bad.
We've done the Aveeno, Burt's Bees and now have moved on to coconut oil. I make sure to take my watch off each time I change her diaper, it is a metal band and I don't want to scratch her. By the way, the only place she doesn't have a rash is where the diaper sits on her body. Strange? I think so.
The cloth diapers get washed in the same load as the rest of her clothing. Don't judge me. I use flush-able liners on her diapers. I switched to paper last week to use up the stash I had on hand. She had the rash before the paper diaper switch.
Anyone have a clue what could be causing the rash?
