Tim has had some weird itchy yucky skin issue on his elbows for quite some time now. I thought it might be psoriasis so i sent him to the doc today. Dr. says it's an allergic reaction to something (thankfully it's not psoriasis) and it could be to DIAPERING THE BABY! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br><br>
Well, he doesn't normally use his elbows to do that.<br><br>
I guess the Dr. was serious about this (I originally thought Tim was pulling my leg). Tim has had this prob since before we switched to CDing.<br><br>
Both of us think the Dr is off his rocker. Any seconds to that opinion? Or is this "allergic reaction" a real possibility? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

Ok Dan had that for years! Finally it just went away on it's own (prior to Nathan even coming). I got it on vacation in Florida and it's almost gone now (3 weeks later) and since I've been diapering Nathan from day one and changed very, very little I'm going to side with you and say your doctor is off his rocker!<br><br>
Good job on getting your husband to the doctor though, Dan never would go. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

WAY WAY off topic...but funny Dr story related..sort of.<br>
My dh went to the Dr for a prostate problem and one of the things that the Dr told him was....he needed to have more sex. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> My DH made the Dr write me a note saying that...because he knew I wouldn't believe it. :LOL

OMG Orangemustange, the same exact thing happened here. Seriously. Dr told him he needed more sex. I think its a conspiracy amoung men. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br><br>
Back on topic...so what exactly about diapering is supposed to be causing this? I think you need a second opinion.<br><br>

<blockquote><p>Hmm. I wonder if dry skin might qualify me to not have to pick up after people around the house. I may need your doctor's number. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"></p></blockquote>

i KNOW, it's such a dumb idea. i suspect that his dr. (who is a bit kooky, which is why he's not also MY dr.) was joking, and tim just didn't pick up on it. b/c it would have to be on his hands, right? or his toes, for those times he changes diapers with his feet...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
dr. said he was sure it wasn't psoriasis. he doesn't know what it is, but he prescribed a cream for it anyway. WTH is that about? i said forget it, we're not putting something on when we don't even know what it is.<br>
you know....i have a sniffle lately....i think i might be allergic to dishwashing...
