My daughter has tiny little bumps on her cheeks and it is as if her cheeks are dry and red all the time. The skin is really rough. She didn't start getting this condition until she was 6 months old and now she is 8 months old. Has anyone had this happen to their child? I have scheduled her a dermatologist appt. I am just curious until then.
it might be contact dermatitis my daughter has that problem, I have to watch everything when she was a baby it was really bad, now I know no red food coloring no eggs and a few other things too, or it could just be very dry skin,
Sounds like eczema to me.
All three of my kids had it when they were babies/toddlers, but eventually outgrew it. Their's was pretty mild, but tended to be much worse in the cold of the winter.
Good luck with the baby!
Eczema sounds likely. My daughter had it and it vanished. She's almost 10 now and it seems to have reappeared.
Thank you for your input, Mommies. My pediatrician said it is probably eczema. So, you guys know your stuff.
Mommies talking about their kids' health kills me. Really. Ok, so I've got a delicate side, shoot me!
He falls down, hands on his chest, blood gushing all over the damn place, and right before he closed his eyes, all he could think about were those damned eczemas on the kids skin.
In rushed the pediatrician. "De-eczemator!", he cried with his last breath. "This child must be saved. This child SHALL be saved."
brilliant stuff. You oughta join us - me, davina, sufi, marine in our Let's Make A Movie thread in the Entertainment forum.
You guys are the best! Do we have a new screenwriter?
Sometimes I have to take a break from all the mobster-fun-stuff and talk about eczema.
That sounds like eczema. The dermatologists will prescribe ointment, but, none worked for my children. I used regular oatmeal and medicated vaseline or lotion with oatmeal in it.
Try stuff called Oilatum in the bath, there is a children's version. Wonderful stuff, works a treat.
My sister's baby had eczema almost from birth - after a few weeks she found out she was overfeeding him. She stopped tickling him awake to feed more each time, and it cleared up within a week.
If this happened just as your baby started on solids, you might want to consult a naturopath for an opinion on the diet factor.
With my older one we were fighting eczema on his cheeks for several months I think, when finally another doctor diagnosed herpes. Went away in a heartbeat with a proper treatment. Did periodically return for several years though, but never was a big problem since, cause we already knew how to deal with it...

Why most mothers prefer sons than daughters?Mothers are more appreciated when their first born is a boy and prefer boys to girls, the favorite child is often the boy, can this affect children when older?

My daughter's dog (a terrier and almost 7 months old) pees everywhere. I know why - she has been caged during the day when my daughter is at school and my daughter's dad refuses to 'do' anything with the pup.Which, by the way, is a clever and responsive animal.Anyway - she's been allowed to pee on...

Who all here has eczema and how bad is yours? Mine only flares up during the winter months, on my upper arms and the inside of my elbows.
