Hi!! I'm popping in from the March 08 Playroom. I have a 2.5 year old named Tanner! We noticed this summer that every time we put sunscreen on Tanner he would break out into a rash mainly on his face. It almost looked as if someone slapped him on both cheeks and it welted up. His arms and legs would get bumpy. Every time we think we have found a good sunscreen for him, two weeks after beginning using it the same thing happens. Has anybody else had any experience with anything like this? I know it's not uncommon for kids to be allergic to sunscreen, so I thought maybe someone on here might have some information for me! Thanks!
Have you compared ingredients on the bottles? I bet you'll find something overlapping in all the brands, and that's the culprit. We had that problem with formula when my oldest was born. Turns out, only one brand had palm oil in it. That was the reason for his break outs. I would keep trying different ones (and even plain old lotions) to narrow down the ingredient causing it. Have you already tried the dye/perfume free kinds?
