Ds is now 16 months and over the last 3 months he has had raised, red blothes appearing on his belly and it spreads gradually over a day or two up to his arms and over his back. After a few doses of piriton it disappears only to reappear a couple of weeks later.
Since the reaction isn't immediate it will be quite difficult to pinpoint the cause.
Are there some things that I should cut out of his diet straight away or shall I ask my GP for advice?
