Three weeks ago DD (18 months) started breaking out in hives at daycare one day, and the following morning was absolutely covered in them. We took her to the doc, who just said to give benedryl, and they gradually receded. She was still getting about one a day even last week.
This morning, just when I thought they were gone for good, she had more, big ones, only on her belly (but huge, inches long, and probably 5-7 of them).
I had thought, when they went away, they were viral (there's been a lot of icky stuff in our house: DS had scarlet fever, DD had a tummy bug, we all have colds) but these new ones make me think otherwise.
My current plan is to write down everything she eats every day and whether she has hives or not and hopefully a pattern will emerge.
Does anyone have any other advice for what I should be tracking?
We are still BFing so should I track my intake, too?
