Hello mamas,

I just wondered if anyone else experienced this.

DD is almost 11 months. She's had to weird marks on her leg since she was at least 6 months. They're small, kind of oval, and rough to the touch. Side-by-side. At her 9 month appointment, ped said could be eczema or shallow warts. She said to put hydrocortisone on frequently to rule out eczema but I didn't want to put steroids into my baby. I used California Baby lotion for eczema - it's a calendula cream. These marks have never changed shape, size, texture.

Even if they are shallow warts, treatment seems very invasive and some information says they'll go away on their own.

Anyone ever experience this? Or have any expertise in this area?


Have a great day!

Holistic nutritionist, WAHM, new mom of first DD 08/29/10 and a precious baby due 2/13/12!
