Im new to this section but not to the boards. I have a 17mo old DD who has been having some rashes that concern me and the doctor doesnt give me any answers. I was hoping someone here might have an idea of where to go to determine if she has an allergy.
Its mainly rashes in her diaper area. I had been using cloth diapers on her since birth and all of the sudden she started getting this horrible rash including bleeding and scabs. I put her in disposables so that i could use butt paste on her and it helped at first. Now she is getting it even with the diapers that have been working and butt paste. Ive pretty much ruled out that any of the diapers/wipes/detergents are the cause because ive switched them all around so much trying new things and she is still getting the rashes.
Now this morning she woke up with red bumps around her mouth along with the butt rash. Ive been looking at her food intake but nothing seems to stand out as the problem. I still breastfeed some so im looking at my own diet as well.
where do I start with looking into food allergies? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
