Sudden Excema in my 4 month old. Treatments?
When my DD turned 20 weeks we made the decision to offer her some organic rice cereal. We were sure to check the ingredients for anything that may cause allergies and are aware that there is very little nutritional benefit to eating rice cereal. She is large for her age and showed a great interest in eating and actually did fantastic with it. A short time later we noticed this strange looking diaper rash. Six days went by and the diaper rash did not respond to any diaper rash treatments. I took her to the pediatrician and on the way there the rash spread into all the creases in her little body. The doctor said it was atopic dermatitis and wrote down some moisturizers and said to use a steroid cream and antihistimines. I've been giving her oatmeal baths and we don't use soap or shampoo. We moisturize with Aveeno cream with coloidial oatmeal and Aquaphor. The rash seems to be spreading and getting worse. We cut out the solids right away and it has been 7 days. She is exclusively breastfed. Any ideas on what else we can do to calm this flare up? Thank you.
