My 6-month-old dd has cradle cap on her scalp, and I'm wondering how this relates to our gut health. She did not have cc as a newborn, but she had a little bit around 3 months that went away. Well now it is back and getting worse. She also has a bit of an unidentified rash that the dr. didn't recognize. maybe I can get a picture of it and see if anyone here knows what it is.
I have been skimming the threads on nutrition and gut flora and I am fascinated. I wonder how this all ties together?
Other random bits of info that may or may not be related:
- She has some minor mid-line defects such as sacral dimple, upper lip tie and cavum septum pellucidum.
- She is breastfed and has just started getting solids on occasion (not every day).
- She had a couple oz. of formula at 9 days old (long story)
- I took a round of antibiotics a few weeks ago for mastitis. This was the first time I've taken abx for several years.
ETA: I tried to get a picture of the mystery rash on her back, but it was very difficult to photograph. Some days it shows up more than others. Usually it looks like white spots, sometimes it is varying shades of pink and raised/mildly scaly. Today it is light pink. Dr. said she didn't recognize it. This is the best pic I could get today; I can see it better if I tilt the screen.
I don't know if this is related to the cradle cap, but the more I learn about health & nutrition, the more I believe everything is related.
