My younger ds is almost 4 months old. Breastfed only at this point.
He's had mucous poops for almost his whole life, but we thought it was just from a stuffy nose that he gets on and off (he's never been sick other than this stuffy nose that pops up here and there).
He gets a rash on his head (forehead down his temples and onto his cheeks when really bad). It's not all the time, it seems to pop up at random times.
Last night his head was totally clear (other than his cradle cap, but no rash). He was fussy most of the night, nursing on and off. When he woke up this morning he had a rash all over his forehead, down both his temples and onto one cheek. It was obviously bothering him as he kept trying to scratch at it. The only thing I can think that I ate different than I usually do is chocolate- I ate quite a bit of chocolate yesterday evening.
Does this sound like an allergy? My older ds had the same rashy stuff on his forehead when he was a baby but I didn't connect that to allergies until he started eating solids (and then we discovered he was allergic to eggs, dairy, corn and strawberries.... but he outgrew all of those allergies). He has an unidentified allergy now and carries an epi pen (we think it might be mango).
Should I just cut out chocolate and see if that helps?
