Reid, my grandson is in so much discomfort and pain. He breaks out all over his body with ichy bumps, welts, hives, severe allegator skin (so many in one area) etc. All of these words describe this. He can't control the scratching and creates bleeding and raw sores everywhere. He wakes every night crying and scratching.
We put him in a warm bath with oatmeal. This seems to relax him for only a little while.
He has been asleep and awoke a few minutes ago crying and brokeout within a matter of a couple of minutes.
He has had allergy tests and been to a dermatologist. The doctor says that he doesn't test positive enough to anything to cause this situation. HELP! HELP!
He was prescribed prednisone for two weeks and that cleared him up but he can't stay on that drug, especially at his age.
Thank You for any help and suggestions. Ron[/QUOTE]
When changing out the detergent you use on his clothes... also Stop using dryer sheet based fabric softener if you do... It leaves residue on the clothes that causes some alergies.
