  • please dont give her hot dogs unless they are vegetarian...the things that go in regular hot dogs are gross beyond your imagination, and she could be allergic to any one of the chemicals, fillers, dyes or cereals that make it up

  • It could be from that liquid in the baby food jar. Wipe them down or peel the skin off and see if the reaction continues...

  • so we are areeing that it is possible that the rash is from hot dogs? thats all im asking. iv never heard of someone having a reaction to eatting hot dogs, so i wasnt sure if i should be looking at something else...

  • I don't have an answer to help, I hope she's not in any pain and hopefully the doctor can help :) Good luck, and I gave my son hotdogs when he had just a few teeth, so I wouldn't worry there and I can tell your not :)

  • Is it possible? Yes, of course it's possible. Also try and think if you have changed anything recently, such as soaps or detergents.

  • Why wouldn't you be able to be allergic to hot dogs? Especially if they're the combination ones. I agree with Krysta, and to make sure you haven't changed soaps or detergeants recently...and of course to call her pedi. Good luck, and I hope she's not in pain! She's adorable.
