So I took LO into the pedi again about the rash and saw the doc that I saw the first time (that said it was just eczema) again. Once again he tried to say he thought it was just eczema. He was of no help and I will not be taking LO to see him again.
I asked him if the rash could be from the oatmeal. I told him how I had been using J&J Vanilla Oatmeal baby wash (oatmeal is the last ingredient so there isn't much in it) when all of this started. She started with a very mild rash and he said it was eczema. So we began putting Aveeno Baby Eczema treatment (oatmeal is the first ingredient) on her 3 times a day and her rash got so much worse. Then we stopped that along with the rice cereal and her rash went away. Then we started feeding her oatmeal and her rash came back. I asked him if it could be the oatmeal and he said that it was probably just a coincident and to keep feeding her the oatmeal. So we fed it to her again and her rash got worse so I stopped feeding it to her. Surprise, a couple days later and her rash is almost completely gone. It has to be the oatmeal!
I am thinking once her rash has been gone for a couple days to try the rice cereal again since she was on it for almost three weeks with no problems before. Also I am thinking about taking her to see an allergist. Is this a good idea? Is it necessary? WWYD?
