well if you are noticing a correlation between the lemon water and the increasing irritation to his skin, skip the lemon water for 6 days (3 for it to get out of your sons system and then 3 so you can see if it is helping any). Start tracking everything you are putting into your body (I'm assuming you are still breastfeeding) and at what time and slowly go through your list and start eliminating things in order to see what days and when his skin is looking better or worse. take your observations to your sons next appointment and share your findings with the doctor. it could be just that his system is reacting badly to things you are consuming. BUT KEEP FOLLOWING DOCTORS ORDERS. :) Best of luck!
