How do I find out if my LO rash is just a heat rash or if she is allergic to the dog? I am worried the dog is our baby too we would be mortified if she was?

Take her to the Docs or even the chemist may be able to help

I was allergic to dogs as a child. I used to get all itchy and red.

When I got married DH really really wanted a dog, so we got one. I only itched for a couple of weeks and then sort of settled down and never had symptoms again.

give your LO a few weeks.

Watch and see if she gets a small scratch from dog. If it swells up around it she is allergic to him/her.

I'm allrgic to dogs, very badly, my symptoms have got much much worse as I've got older sad
