: : Hi, Nicole it's Melinda again ,Did you take your son to the Dr. yesterday? what did he/she say? Is it an allergic reaction? Did he/she suggest maybe taking him off veggies and fruits for a week and maybe go rice or barley?to see if the rash clears, Oh I hope it soon clears for the little guy!!

: The doctor thought it was some sort of irritation rash(he didn't say from what). He didn't seem to think the rash was that bad. He gave me a new cream to try, an antibiotic, antifungal, and cortisone cream (all mixed together). He said just to put cornstarch over top to keep it dry.
He never told me to take him off veg., but maybe I will try anyway. He has not started fruits yet.
Is there any fruits I should stay away from????
I may get a referral to a dermatologist if it doesn't totally clear in a week or so. It actually looks a lot better and doesn't seem to bother him that much. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for asking.
