My 20 month old had keratosis pilaris rubra, aka chicken skin. It’s severe red bumps on her thighs, arms, cheeks and buttocks. It doesn’t bother her too much but it keeps getting worse and more red. I’ve gone the the allergist to verify it is not a food allergy and the dermatologist just for them to recommend the same creams I’ve already tried. (cerave SA, hydrocortisone cream and KP duty) Do...

My 20mo. vomits everytime she eats eggs so we stopped giving to her until she will be 2yr, which our physician said to try again at that age and if it keeps happening to have her tested to see if she has an allergy to it. Anyway what great breakfast foods do you guys give your little ones??
This suddenly appeared on my 1-year old when waking up this morning. All over cheeks, arms, legs, entire body. He doesn’t seem the least bit bothered and is behaving as usual, or I would be worried. He’s on day 7 of 10 day course of antibiotics for ear infection. Can’t think of anything else ... any ideas?
Wondering how many of you guys have children with food allergies? What do you do if you go out to eat at a restaurant? Or for school breakfast/lunches? What do you do when you go on vacation (in particular at an all inclusive resort)? What do you expect family and others to do/know when visiting? I do not have any children with food allergies, but it is part of my career, and I'm just wo... More
The doctor told me this sometimes happens when babies are starting out and not to worry. As long as her lips are not swelling and no hives a few mins later. Has this happened to anyone else??
My 3 month old's nose is super stuffy and congested. I'm wondering if she might be allergic to mold since my husband has a bad allergy to mold in San Antonio and it doesn't help its been rainy a lot.

Our son has asthma, dog/cat and outdoor allergies (each season). Growing up, he was so sick every couple of months, so bad he'd have to go to the doctor and stay home a few days, do breathing treatments, sometimes emergency visits because his breathing was so labored. He's in preschool age now, and since we took him to the allergist over a year ago, we finally have a hold on things. But... More

He also had two on his cheek that were really red and several on his legs and feet that were red and even look... More
