Hi everyone

Hope someone can help me..

So my babies nearly 6 months and I started weaning since past week and he has since developed a rash on his face. I'm not sure whether its 100% linked to the weaning but he didnt have it before then. The doctor prescribed oilatum over the phone which isn't really working.

Does anyone have any idea what it could be, could it be linked to the food i'm goving him - which was baby porridge and rice. Or do some babies get the odd rash/spots and they clear themselves. I'm so confused as this is ds1 for me.

Hi, you should probably make an appointment to see the GP for diagnosis. Your LO might have eczema that's been triggered by a food allergy. My lo had eczema for a while, gave her porridge today and she went in anaphylactic shock ( severe allergy). If they are exposed for too long to an allergen this can happen...
