In Reply to: help itchy 7yr old daughter... posted by VICKI on April 19, 2000 at 20:10:46:
: my daughter 7 year old has what looks like pimples on her face when you first look at her. But they are not pimples, hives, or ezcema. These "pimples" are on her cheeks, calves, triceps, forearms, and front of upper legs. It itches her and I don't know what to do anymore. I have taken her to her MD who gave me hydrocortizone which didn't work, dematologist said it could be due to early development or allergies. he told me to take away milk, chocolate, orange, strawberry. again didn't work. anyone ever hear of this? Thanks
I don't know what your daughter has but it sounds to me like it's an allergic reaction, be it food, certain fabrics or even the sun. My daughter has the eczema, the itching, the irritability, etc... First, try to give her an antihistamine to relieve her from the itching. (I give my 20 months old daughter ATARAX and it works).
second, you could go to an allergy teat clinic to see what she could be allergic to. Have her pimples always been there or is it something new? If it's recent, try to think what has changed lately in her diet or in her clothing, etc... This might help you narrow it down when you go to the allergy clinic.
I do hope I was of help. I suffered a lot with my daughter before I found out what her allergies were. You can email me if you have any more questions.
