I know this is not really a 'health' concern & is very minor compared to all the health issues so many of your little ones have gone through or are going through but .... Rachel has really pimply skin on her arms & leags , they are often raised & red. They are like this all the time, one doc when she had croup thought it was a suspect rash but after 8 hrs of watching her in hospital decided not ( I knew that) but could not give me an explaination for it. We use non bio washing powder etc, & its not like an allergic reaction , it just is pimply !!! My doc just says that's her skin ! Susan
Daniel has that too on his upper arms - sometimes its worse and sometimes it looks ok. He gets quite red cheeks too, and I think its linked to that as when his cheeks are better his arms are too. We use an emollient cream, but as you doc says I think its just skin! Although when we were up in Scotland on holiday, Dans skin really cleared up almost instantlyy - maybe something to do with the water? Its much softer up there.
Rachel always has very red (rosy) cheeks as well , haven't noticed a link between those & her pimply skin but will look out for it now .....mmmm.....interesting . I have just started using an emollient on Rachel to see if it helped , only started Mon - no obvious difference yet. Could be right about the softer water !
