So! a week or so ago, Owen developed a rash all over his legs, his arms, back of the neck and a tiny spot on his face.
His torso area and back have stayed clear (except for the small spot at the top of his neck). Also his cute little tush as well was clear. It was just his limbs.
We have a few guesses as to what has caused this rash but as of today we are unsure… Especially since the rash doesn’t seem to be going away.
Here are the culprits we think could have caused it…
(All happened within the same 24 hours)
2) We used a store bought sun screen – I am not sure the brand. We took a friends kiddos to the pool and our kids were really intrigued by their sun screen (since it was spray on) – so we gave in and let them use it, even though Im pretty strict when it comes to sun screens (we use www.lovingnaturals.com 100% otherwise). Because Owen wears a swim shirt – we did not spray any on his torso or back. We also didn’t spray it on his face, but I do recall him rubbing his face with his wrist, after being sprayed on the arms. So I think the spot on his face could have come from that. This makes the most sense to me… but I’m just not sure.
3) He ate a BUTT LOAD of black berries… He has had black berries many times before though with no trouble AT ALL. So I dont think this is it, but could be?
I think ONE of those 3 things caused the rash… but what I dont get is why its not healing. A few days after his rash appeared, he was stung YET AGAIN by the same type of bee (he stepped on one, again) – his toe swelled up around the sting, but that was it. No all over breakout. So that makes me want to weed out the bee sting.
His little legs and arms STILL feel like hard goosebumps all over them. It feels dry as could be.
I use all natural soaps and creams on him. I also use natural homemade detergent and have for years… so I know those arent the culprits. Its just a mystery.
So I figured if anything ill blog about it & maybe one of you have experienced this too :) – and can share some insight.
That being said I plan to make him a Dr’s apt and take him in next week. The good thing is, he seems fine besides the look of the bumps. He doesn’t seem to itch very much, so for that I am thankful.
Here is one more photo….
