So I finally got around to listing one item, just to get started. And it didn't post. Not only that but it isn't showing in "My Account". And having read the FAQs and two different "Help" forums (including the one on flagged items) I'm super paranoid about aggravating my "Community"; and I'm anxious to avoid inadvertently posting it twice. So I post a question in one of the forums and I may have gotten a glimpse of a reply as I was headed out the door but now I can't...

Especially if the prescribed medications were for an adult, and now you want to use it on a child. As I totally understand that your...
Hello everyone, I posted in Questions and Suggestions and was directed to the July thread but I didn't actually post until August 5th, after this new thread was started. My apologies to anyone that has already seen this. I don't write for a living or even for a hobby but recently I made up a nonsense song for my 6 year old daughter at bedtime, rather than sing the usual lullaby. She insisted I put it in writing. I sang the final product to her the next day and she...

Good luck, mama, I know how frustrating it can be, I look back at pictures of DS from August-October and feel that stress all over...

Only difference is that the rash was in the neck. One allergist suggested early on that I go on a total elimination diet, because she was convinced that it was something passing through my breastmilk. In the end, after asking 3 other allergists, I decided not to modify my diet. To this very...

My 4 yo and almost 6 yo have had a persistent rash for about 6 months. DH was...
Hello everyone, I don't write for a living or even for a hobby but recently I made up a nonsense song for my 6 year old daughter at bedtime, rather than sing the usual lullaby. She insisted I put it in writing. I sang the final product to her the next day and she suggested I "copy" it. I now have minor delusions of publishing it. With my nephew's help I think I can put some basic sheet music together for it. Realistically, is there any avenue for the average...
Note, this update is cross posted in the Childhood Years. Regarding the rash, we've discontinued the topical steroid (Betamethasone Dipropionate Cream USP (Augmented), 0.05%. DH had suggested using it again to "knock (the inflammation) down" but I reminded him of why that wasn't a good idea. He does pride himself on thinking outside the box and he has a tendency to keep me on what feels like a need to know basis sometimes but I have to believe he hasn't been using it...

We took her to our family dr. who gave her Mupirocin ointment for one, which cleared right up, and then for another we had to go a step farther and get Altabax, which cleared it up. For us, we had to be absolutely consistent in treating it 3 times per day. She only has gotten them occasionally, so I don't think they are food related for us....
