when DS was little he had this rash that would not go away under the corner of his mouth. I finally took him to a derm and they were able to clear it up when the ped could not. Well 2 years later it is back. My kids are now on Medicaid (which I am very grateful for) but I looked at the list of derms covered and it is like 6 places. The first 3 no longer accept it. The other 3 don't have any appts until Dec or Jan!! OMG. this is driving me nuts! and those 3 places were 1.5 hours away! Worst part I can't even remember the name of what they called the rash! Or the lotion they gave him that finally worked(we tried 3)! Okay so I still need a question... How stupid and I for not writing that crap down?

I would think all that info on what it was and what worked to fix it would be in his medical file. You regular ped could look up that info and treat him, possibly?

See if your pharmacy has a record of what worked for the rash. If they don't, ask the pharmacist for suggestions. I had cracked corners of my mouth often as a kid and cortisone was the only thing that helped.
Lynette had a good idea. Often a specialist will send a letter as to how they are treating things to the PCP.
