This rash is going to be the death of me. I have been waiting ALL FREAKING MORNING for the pediatrician to call in another prescription. Even though I called them at 8 am, I still haven't heard back. Bastards. I called the dermatologist to make an appointment. They can't get Izzy in until JULY. What the fuck? To finish the morning, I took Izzy to the GI doctor for a check-up. She thinks the rash is definitely related to a food allergy. Ugh.
Thank you for all of the tips and advice. We have tried Aveeno lotion, hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid cream, a non-steroid cream, and Zyrtec. Throughout everything, the rash has only grown bigger. This whole thing is very frustrating. And now I have THREE doctors invovled - the ped, the GI doctor, and EVENTUALLY a dermatologist.
In other news, I have totally regressed on Porgie's eating issues. I have reverted to spoon feeding her the majority of her meals. I suck. But when she plays with her food for 30 minutes without taking a single bite, I tend to get a little worked up. John is always saying, "Why do you care if she eats dinner?" I don't know why I care so much, but I do. And it is sooooooo hard for me to let her get down without eating. I think I have serious control issues.
And finally, I have gained about 10 pounds since Christmas. It is not surprising, but it is depressing. I eat Ben & Jerry's almost every night. I am not exaggerating. Once again, I suck.
