About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM of 3 and a wife of one. I started a blog to just bitch about life and now our youngest son is very sick I want to hear from other families going thru this and support eachother. He has SBS secondary to NEC with only 50 cm proximal jejunum and a 3 cm segment of terminal ileum. He is TPN dependent. He is a tough little 6 lb, 3 month old! Keeping my mind from turning to mush, Scentsy was introduced to me and I'm very thankful. The wonderful people in this community has changed my life. Even so, chaos in our house is a daily adventure. Some days, alright most days.. I take things minute by minute. To get through this bumpy road called 'life' I need my husband Jerad and my kids, my son Jordan 15, and my daughter Jaycee who is 11, and my son Jaxon is 3 months...I say it how it is... So I will say this.... "If you don't like what you are reading, you have the choice to leave my page. Nice, bitchy, raging lunitic, loving.. that's me! I admit I swear like a sailor, I may have different religious beliefs, I hate brussel sprouts with a passion.. these are all ways to describe ME.. I love making new friends but I will not 'pretend' to be someone I'm not just for their sake.

Skin allergy perhaps?

     This is twice now in a 3 month time frame.  The first time her cheeks were turning red, almost if a child was running a high fever... Even though she wasn't, at first I DID think so.  She definitely used this to her advantage.  Stay home from school, brother needs to bring me popsicles etc.  There was no fever, no symptoms at all.  The redness turned into spots that looked burned.  It was horrible, I felt so bad.  I took her to the doctor, they said it was probably an allergic reaction to something and here is an antibiotic ointment.  It took a good week and it finally started to clear up.  That was it, gone!  Until last week.... Here cheeks turning red was the first sign.  They immediately started looking like she was seriously burned.  I'm not talking about a sunburn either.  Took her back to the doctor, they gave her Bactroban ointment to put on the really bad spots and Aquafor for the rest.  It was getting worse, but we hung in there and continued treatment and today it is healing nicely, but the one spot almost looks like it could scar.  The doctor has now explained if it was an allergic reaction to something it would come and then go away more quickly, not linger for 1-2 weeks.  Ok then, what the hell is it?  Just today I went and bought "dye and perfume free" laundry soap.  I had her quit using ALL soaps and lotions.  Now mind you, before this she was using Cetaphil and Eucirin soaps, which I thought were mild.  Has anyone experienced this?  She is 11 yrs old, I'm trying to teach her good face washing, but I'm not sure what to use?

  1. I don't know what to tell you. It sounds very strange that it comes and lingers like that. I had an allergy test done no me to see what I was allergic to (apparently everything) So, consider an allergin or dermatologist that could give you more specifics?
