Hey ladies! My son was born in Oct. of 07 and has always had sensitive skin. We went to a dermatolgist early on b/c of his eczema, got that under control. He still breaks out occassionaly but we have ointment that works like a charm on those trouble areas. He also has a milk allergy, though I'm confused on why he was okay on next step formula which contains cows milk but he breaks out to regular milk? I guess the formula is broken down more? Also we just learned that he has asthma. He got a virus from daycare that caused him to break out and have a fever and after that went away he got a cold and started breathing heavily. We had him taken to the emergency room this past Sun. b/c his heavy breathing scared us. We didn't know what it was. They took x-rays and he has no fluid in the lungs or a bronchi infection, but his lungs were a little too inflated the dr. said? Anyways we're on breathing treatments (I need advice on how to get him to not pass out from screaming so much from the mask) and steroids for several days. I guess I just need someone to tell me that we'll get through this and he'll eventually be able to sleep through the night again and not get SO mad at us when we have to give him his treatments. Any advice?
