Dd has started to get an.itchy red rash on her face.

looks like an allergic reaction

it's a mystery

Scarlet fever?

Been bitten by anything?

Pillow cases? Maybe a maintanence wash, change of detergent and extra rinse?

all bedding has been washed in an anti allergy detergent which has made a surprising difference to her eczema.

she never really gets eczema on her face. she's had it on and off since Friday. no new products ir anything. all are carefully selected and tried and tested and caused her no reactions the whole time we have used them.

she sleeps in.her pants so of it was bedding ot would be all over but it's just her face. ..

Oh and no cough or temp or anything.

Slapped face? Dd1 wasn't really ill with it.

My DS got something similar after eating some sweets with hideous blue colouring in them. Has she been eating anything unusual lately?

It's not the shampoo.

I. had an idea about the soap at school and her running her face but apparently she doesn't use soap as it makes her hand itchy hmm


could be the spray used on the tables I guess but nit convinced.

No strange food

She's not been at PGL or similar has she?

flanjabelle Wed 16-Mar-16 14:32:00

It could be anything that she touches. I am allergic to lanolin and if I touch anything with it in, I will get a rash on my face from transferring it by toucjng my face. Often I won't come up in a rash on my hands as the skin isn't as sensitive.

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 16-Mar-16 14:47:38

Well. ot seems to have gone fir now. although she can still "feel it"

clearly she's toughed something and rubbed her face or she's least against something but we won't know.i don't think. she's not been away anywhere. it's likely something at school she's not even thought about...

One more idea, do they have conifers at school? A friend's child got a rash from playing around the conifers because of the sap.

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 16-Mar-16 14:54:45

I haven't seen any but I shall ask her. thanks smile
