Do any of you have any suggestions on who I should take my 2yo daughter to??
Caitlyn has a horrendous rash that has been getting worse by the day since June 1. She has been going to Ak Allergy and was diagnosed with an allergy to nuts, soy and tomato.
In May she had her first allergic reaction after eating some mint chocolate chip ice cream. After that initial reaction she had reactions almost daily to different foods (we have since discovered it was soy). June 1, I noticed what I thought was eczema on the sides of her tummy. When I spoke to her allergist on June 2, and told them about the developing eczema, they gave me a list of creams to try.
Her rash has gotten progressively worse every single day. It now goes all the way around her tummy, back, sides and has moved halfway down both arms and legs.
She has seen her pediatrician twice now, with no success. they just had me try more of the creams such a Cetaphil (which contains almond oil, but thankfully I caught it before putting it on her) and Cera Ve. Nothing is working!!!
I have called her allergist numerous times and they are no help. They told me today that they are not a primary care office and she needs to see her pediatrician, which she has already done TWICE to no avail!! The allergist said th ey can see us July 7th, which is way too long for me to wait.
I was looking at some photos of hives/rashes online and thought maybe she might have ringworm. So, I started putting Lotrimin on her, again to no avail.
I even bought some monistat thinking that might help, but havent tried that yet.
My poor baby is MISERABLE!!!!
We are desperate right now!!!! She is going back to her pediatrician again tomorrow, but I don't know why, they haven't been able to help us yet.
Does anyone have any suggestions??? Please??
