Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
What caused this? :(
Keira had diaper rash today. (mild case) That's a first.... she never gets that. The only new intros we've tried is yesterday she had like two tiny bites of a peach and I mean TINY and today she had some diluted white grape juice. Could either of those in a very small quantity give her the rash? She isn't acting any different-just one instance of diaper rash. :( I sure hope it's not the new formula but she's been on it for 2 weeks now and no issues whatsoever.

Diagnosed A/R at 6 wks

peanut & egg allergies...still
Zoo Boo Trick-or-Treating (pic).
Put butt butter on her and if it isn't greatly improved by tomorrow it could be a yeast infection rash. Those only go away with an anti-fungal prescription. You can buy the ladies yeast stuff over the counter but it's not as concentrated as the cream the Pedi will give you. I have tried both and I love the good stuff. Clears him up in a couple days.

Er, disclaimer, I am not a doctor. I only play on on Pager, lol.

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
Allie only gets a rash when she's about to break a tooth. From the pharmacist I talked to today - pretty much ALL diaper rashes are due to yeast overgrowth. His suggestion was to take the probiotics we're giving her, mix a dose with Vaseline to make a paste, and use it every time we diaper her. It works miracles! Vinegar also kills yeast, so you can try a vinegar bath (diluted to about 1 cup vinegar per bath)

Seamus was born 7/6/07, one month early with Silent Reflux. Zantac since 3 weeks old, currently taking herbs and probiotics.
Hi there from vacationlandia..I have found that using a hair blow drier really helps prevent rashes(for the future) I am hoping it wasn't the food. Good luck!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I bet it wasn't the food...you would have seen at least another reaction elsewhere, too, I think ...or at least I hope it isn't a food reaction! I know grape juice is very mild - Sebastian did fine with it a looonnnnggg time ago, and he never did fine with anything. I think peaches are pretty hypoallergenic, too...

Hope her heiney (hiney? Hieney? I have no idea. I don't think I have ever typed it before) clears up soon!!

I think we've got a new tooth in! So that might have been why?

Coyle Eagan. One Year Old. Doing well on Cow's Milk flavored with juice :) Drinking two bottles of Go&Grow daily. Eating solids better but still have rough days. No More Silent Reflux-that I can hear anyway.. but puking again. Zantac 2ML 2X daily.
coyle has a butt rash too. i said it to my mom and she says " he always gets rashes before cutting a tooth" i'm like mom, the kid has 8 teeth!! lol. i too gave coyle white grape juice last week (coincidence?) because of the Upper GI to prevent the constipation. he pooped 5 times in one day and then got the rash. so, has she been pooping more often?

our miracle cure is butt paste mixed with 1% hydrocortisone. if this doesnt work i have to go to the lotrimin.
Check with your
doctor first!
