My DD has a bit of a rash on her face. She started to break out about 5 days ago on one side of her face. (It looks like baby acne.) It is slowly getting better, but has spread to the other side of her face and forehead. My theory is that her face broke out from my makeup. I haven't worn makeup since she's been born (too tired & not enough time) until about a week ago when I wore makeup 3 days in a row. Then lo and behold, she breaks out, but only on her face. After those 3 days, I haven't worn makeup as I didn't want to further irritate her face in case that is the cause.
My MIL thinks it is from washing her clothes with ours. I rarely mix up our laundry, but on occasion have washed an item of hers with ours, or an item of ours with hers. I use perfume and dye free laundry soap and fabric sheets. I don't think her breakouts have anything with the laundry as she's been fine until just recently, plus she is only breaking out on her face.
MIL also said we should apply Aquafor or Eucerin on the rash/breakouts on her face. MIL has had some pretty bizarre advice so far, ALL of it our pedi has said not to do. I'm going to call the pedi tomorrow about the rash and using Aquafor/Eucerin, but wanted to see what the bumpies thought.
