contact rash- ot
emily has gotten a contact rash on her face around her mouth. it comes and goes varying in intensity throughout the day but has stuck around in some form (small red bumps or a light redness) for some time now. We have no clue how she got it, no new foods and all of our clothes are washed in hypo allergenic detergent; journaling has lead us no where....

Anyways, although she dose not seem to be bothered by it, how do you get rid of it? or any ideas on how she could be getting it other then food and detergent/soap?

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
It sounds a little like the ezcema that Katie got on her legs and forehead and now with drooling around her mouth. It looks almost like like small pimples that don't have a white head. I tried just regular lotion on legs/forehead and petroleum jelly around mouth and it disappears. Does she have sensitive skin? Hope you figure out what it is!

Bryson (3/06), former Neocate, Nexium, and Reglan baby. Diagnosed with peanut allergy and asthma. Weaned from meds in Spring 0f 08. Brother, Parker (6/04), was also on Prevacid and Pregestimil (formula) as an infant.
This sounds crazy but have either one of you changed bath soap, lotions, or cologne. I know our son's skin gets irritated if I wear cologne so it is no longer worn around here. Just a thought if nothing else has changed.

Mila is on Peptamen JR 30 cal by NG tube. Open Heart Surgery 2/08/08. Captopril, Zantac, Losec, Lasix.
Its probably ( in my experience ) from where her mouth is meeting your breast when you nurse. It should go away on its own.

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
I was thinking the same thing - that it may be from some change that you've made. Halley gets those contact rashes when she rubs up against my dh's skin. I'm not sure what soap he uses, but H always breaks out. Also, is she drooling a lot from teething? That's when H breaks out as well.
