Yeah, and the dryer sounds fine if you are not using any fabric softeners in the wash or dryer sheets that might leave a residue on the dryer wall. It might take a few washes to get out all the detergent. Check any labels on her clothes for spandex or lycra, too as they can also be irritants, or exposed elastic. All things to consider when you are out of ideas. This post has focussed so much on foods that I don't remember if you said you had pets? Is she sharing your bed? I'm thinking of environmental allergens that might affect her skin. Again, when you're out of ideas......
Yeah, the cradle cap could muddy up what you are seeing esp. since in the worst cases it can spread to the entire body, starting at the forehead/neck area and reaching her torso and onward. I cleared up my daughter's by using that Neutrogena product (name??) every day for a week. OK, not the most holistic/natural method perhaps, but she was miserable and all her skin was angry red and bumpy. We just treated her scalp and it went away. Of course, not the end of the skin troubles, but that particular one disappeared after one round of treatment. Happier baby, to be sure!
Also, no soap! Babies don't need soap or very many baths or hot water.
welll, I guess I should say that we havent used fabric softener in the drier, LATELY. Its been a good few months and even before we rarely used them.
She shares our bed. I will be washing pillow cases (shes been laying on them lately to keep her nose clear d/t a cold) and all her blankets so she can have a barrier between us and the bed.
We have a bird, althoug she tested negative to feathers from the skin prick test.
Its worst on her face. She barely has any on her body, least of all her bac. The skin in her elbow and knees are itchy and her abdomen is starting to itch, even though it doesnt look too bad. I just figure the face has the most sensitive skin so if it is environmental, that would get the worst of it. Just my reasoning
