I am thinking there must be asome irritant to her skin...Laundry detergent, dryer sheets, etc. Do you have a pet? My 3 year old breaks out in a rash whenever the dog lick or sniffs her hand- of any "dog wetness" comes in contact with her skin she breaks out. I would put a topical antihistimine like Bendryl or even cortisone creme and see if that helps. Is the rash painful or itchy? My other daughter at 3 years old did this and we discovered she was allergic to cherries....She would get dry raised red patches and they would itch like crazy then get painful. Doc thought it was allergy to the sun or excema but - nope. Just cherries!

well, mine both had very sensitive skin, and still do...its hard to find totally chemical free products, but they are out there.



Is the rash only in one area, or several?

Have you addressed your concern to a doctor? Your child could have sensitive skin, or it could be a form of eczema.
