%$@&

I'm standing firm on the fact that the pediatrician was downright rude, inconsiderate, etc. But it looks like we've got eczema. Full-blown case of it. Strangely, only on the right side of her body. I'm really hoping it's a reaction to a bug bite, chlorine or something outside. I just don't know if I can deal with food allergies again. I've eliminated all sugar and refined carbs to keep from feeding it. I'm hoping it resolves itself as suddenly as it appeared. So, needless to say, I'm a little down in the dumps. Upside is...it doesn't bother her. At all. Not even the slightest.

Elbow pit, right side.

Poor little peanut. My friend's little girl (21 mos old) had a round of it in her left armpit last week and she kept a bandage on it with neosporin and it cleared up relatively quickly. You could try that?? Good luck!

Madi's rash disappeared as sneakily as it came...and I'm still left clueless....

it does seem like heat makes it worse in creases etc., but why it's only on the right side is a mystery.

POOR RV (as Nolan so eloquently calls her)!!! :) Hope it clears up sooner than later!!

Poor girl...at least it's not itchy.

If I remember right, Gavyn had eczema when he was younger and it had nothing to with being allergic. He just has a problem with really dry skin. Maybe I remembering wrong, though. A little extra dry skin lotion TLC cleared it right up.

Gavyn's wasn't itchy, either... just looked terrible. Get better soon, little girl. Sorry you're down in the dumps about it, Shannon.

it's weird though....avrie has the most moist skin ever. i hardly ever put lotion on her...sometimes just so she smells lovely. i'm too lazy tonight but i'll post an update tomorrow.
