Itchy

So, the rash. What happened with that damn pesky rash? Well, it got better...but not really. Izzy's dermatologist appointment was scheduled for last Wednesday. On Sunday the rash was looking better. On Monday it looked great. And on Tuesday it was almost completely gone. So, I canceled his appointment.

But the rash is still present. It looks much better, but it is still incredibly itchy. Whenever we take his clothes off, Izzy goes insane with the scratching. He scratches and cries and scratches and cries...

Here is a picture of his poor little butt in the bath tonight...

So, the rash lingers. I am starting to think that we might never get rid of it.

Honestly he is around the age BG was when her eczema flared up for the first time. We had to switch to all free detergents and all her clothes have to go through the rinse cycle at least twice or a third time if there is still soap. We have to use this mild soap on her in the tub, Cetaphil. It is a pain in the ass! And she still flares up. If her clothes aren't 100% cotton we have to wear undershirts under them. I do all this and she still had a flare up this week. Her butt is all scratched up. Drives me crazy!

awww! Bless his heart. Have you tried Aveeno's Oatmeal Bath? It will definitely soothe the itching and hopefully calm down the rash.
