Today marks the fourth day and I am anxious to see the results. Four days ago my ds suddenly had an outbreak of hives, on his stomach, back, legs, arms and face. I gave him children's Benadryl and made a paste of baking soda and water for his skin. This happened right before bedtime and by morning the hives were gone. Until later on that day, they appeared again. I made a mental note of his daily activities that day, let's see, no change in his diet, played outside, no change in laundry soap so on and so forth. My routine w/ds has been the same for 4 days, this morning I've created a journal. (Woke up, no hives, showered, Cheerios w/2% milk etc) children can develop alergies to things they have eaten and been around their whole lives...just like that. So while I'm writing down everything he eats and does throughout the day, waiting in between (an hour or two) to see if he gets an out break, then I will know exactly what his new allergy is. Ice cream is something he's eaten everyday since this happened, so unfortunately, that's a possible culprit :(
what experiences have you had with sudden outbreaks? How did you go about finding the cause and what home remedies helped?
