facts about the rash:
- it's not itchy
- it appeared on one side of her mouth, and has spread
- in the photo, it's the worst that it has appeared, after facewashing and tooth brushing- it fades and revives throughout the day/week. sometimes it's barely present. it looks waay worse than it usually is in the photo, but does show what the worst part looks like.
- it comes and goes.
treatments so far:
coconut oil (no)
weleda calendula cream (no)
tea tree oil (didn't seem to help but wasn't a long term application, it was a no-go with dd)
neosporin (worked briefly or appeared to, but then the rash spread and got worse)
the only thing that appears to work is hydrocortisone cream, which i don't want to keep using.
basically i only want to know what you mama peeps think it is so i have a clue when going to the doctor. i am taking her as she's had it for too long and i have tried pretty much all i can think of.
it could possibly be dietary, as it faded lots when she was dairy free for a few days.
also, she sucks her thumb. i think she might aggravate it that way.
so here it is, again, at the worst point. it's not usually bad like this:
