My son is 18 months old, still nursing regularly, and has had an ongoing rash for 2 months now. We have seen the doctor and dermatologist...his rash is kind of mysterious to everyone. It goes away and comes back in cycles...his scalp is the worse for him. It looks like cradle cap and is very itchy. HIs gets red marks on his body and face that look like bug bites (but definitely aren't).
Long story short (sort of) we have been using steroid creams on the outbreaks and medicated shampoo for his poor scalp. Trust me, we have tried everything homeopathic/natural before and after the prescriptions, including changing his diet to avoid allergens. I am wondering if there is something about my breast milk ( I have also cut out the most common allergens along with him) that is affecting him negatively. Maybe too much of a hormone fluctuation with menses?
Just wondering if anyone has experienced a rash in a nursing babe that is related to the mama's hormone levels.
