A few hours after applying sunblock on my kids, my daughter began to develop a red, itchy and slightly raised rash. It was not an immediate reaction and I thought it was weird that it took a few hours to develop but when it was fully up she was very uncomfortable.
I called the doctor's emergency line and he gave me recommendations to treat it.
But now - with several weeks of the summer to go I must search for a sun block that will be safe and gentle on my little mama. Can you guys tell me what you use or recommend any brands for her that will fully protect her from the sun but should not cause an allergic reaction?
I do admit that I was slapped with guilt since I bought and applied the lotion on her. She's MUCH better now and free from the itchies. But I still feel bad for not putting more thought into a pretty important purchase.

Was the sunblock old? Last yr my DD had a reaction to sunblock that was a yr old. Had to take her to Urgent Care and they gave her Benadryl. You could try California Baby sunblock..alittle expensive but made out of natural ingredients. Good luck finding one that works on your DD.
