Hi all - DS 10mths has developed a mild rash around his mouth. It's dry & sometimes flaky skin, but doesn't seem to be bothering him yet. It's been a few days intermittently.
He hasn't eaten anything different and is allergic to dairy & soy, so his diet is already pretty organic and I know everything in what he eats.
He doesn't 'seem' to be teething, as in no other signs from last time anyway. His drooling doesn't seem excessive, but when sleeping the dummy is probably making it a little worse perhaps.
Any other ideas please? TIA

Has he eaten any citrus?

No citrus apart from a sip of my OJ a few days ago. Would that still cause a rash this long the track if he reacted to it? It was literally a taste of mine up to his lips only.

My dd2 and DS both get a red rash on their mouths from tomato, strawberry, citrus and occasionally watermelon.. Could it be one of these?

Just a different idea - to me it sounds like windburn. I suffered terribly from it as a child. If you want to, try putting some vaseline (or similar) on it for a few days and see if it helps.

lip lickers dermatitis; caused by them licking their lips or saliva being against their skin from around the dummy etc
variety of treatments depending on how it presents and what they react to. i puit dermaid 1% on my son when he's asleep at night. Don't do it all the time, just the times it flares up bad.
