Lindsey got this big rash on her forehead after dinner tonight. I'm worried it's a food allergy, although she has not reacted previously to any of the food she ate tonight (beef+beef gravy puree, carrots, peas, multi-grain cereal, all of which she has had before with no problems :?).
It didn't happen right away. It happened like this: She screamed and cried after dinner. Megan caught the hysteria and screamed too. Lindsey arched her back at the diaper change/pajama ritual. She was furious
, it seemed. I gave her some milk and then she was fine. She finished the bottle, and since she was always a spitter, I reckoned she'd had enough (altho it seemed she could drink more). I put her in bed so I could give Megan her milk. Lindsey cried in bed a little, but then was quiet. Soon after, she cried again, so I figured I'd give her more milk. I got her out of bed after putting Megan down and then this shit happened...( pictures help )
One other thing was that I put some Neosporin on her finger because her fingernail had broken and was just hanging there, and though I tried to snip it off, it only seemed to tear and make her upset. Poor bairn! Next thing I knew, the fingernail fragment was gone and this big ass rash was on her face. Lindsey rubs her face as she goes to sleep - could she have rubbed the Neosporin on her face and it caused a reaction?? She is prone to rashes, for which the doctor prescribed Desonide.
I am calling the nurse in the morning, but was wondering if any of my mom-friends had any experience....btw her mouth rash is normal, I think it is caused by her Nuk. ♥
