my son is 7 weeks old,my husband says he had milk problem not sure if it was milk allergy or intolerance when he was small....i drank milk first two weeks and my son was ok,then he started with what i thought was heat rash am not sure,i reduced his clothing over the next weeks but around the same time,say end of the 2nd week i started using johnsons 3 in 1,because the first weeks i was admitted in hospital throughout and he was cleaned by nurses and they used bambino soap and oil....finally at 6 weeks his rashes were a bit rough when i touched them and he was scratching a lot,finally skin was peeling...now he doesnt scratch much,only when he is sleepy and fussy,but if i leave the rash area without oil it starts peeling and it gets rough then smooth then rough...oh the rashes started on his cheeks then went to eyebrows and ears and then forehead...but now the ears are okay...i am worried sick,a new mom and i know my message is a bit messed and not properly arranged but i havent slept wondering what the problem is...i have seen his paediatrician twice btw and she asked me few questions,like if the rashes appear only after feeds when i have drank milk and i said no,so she said its ok,second time she told me to avoid dairies,that was yesterday btw,so i started checking on internet and am confused whether its the soap or really milk because i drank milk since he was born but the rashes came when he was 3 weeks....any advices or enlightment will be appreciated
