my daughter keeps getting persistant skin rashes
I dont think its ecsema (though she did get mild amounts as a baby) ... but it doesnt seem to go away - even with steroid cream
it doesnt bother her much - is occasionally itchy - but mostly is just a mild rash
what could it be?

Maybe just a bit of a reaction to something? Maybe grass? You could try oatmeal in the bath, works a treat on my DS he gets mild eczema

Hi @ BH-KatiesMum what does the rash look like? I suffered from eczema as a child and food such as vegemite, cheese and orange juice would cause it to flair up.
How old is your daughter? I only ask because i used to use alot of steroid cream, and it only masks the underlying problem. It thins the skin and then your skin is more prone to eczema. I saw a naturopath while i was quite young and she put me on fish oil and zinc, zinc helps your skin repair itself and is extremely vital. I guess it depends how old your DD is and what age the naturopath can see her. The other thing that really helped was sunshine, sounds weird but these three things combined sorted out my issues. Hope that helps

yeah i am thinking it must be food related.
she gets plenty of sunshine - and its on her legs (see pics above) and she has been wearing shorts and skirts so not covered or sweaty etc

Interesting....can a 8 month old have fish oil. I can't get rid of the rashes on my daughters face. I'm wondering if I can get a blood test done to see if any allergies that I don't know of.

hi katiesmum, that rash near the back of her knee? in the photo so im guessing the position. ? that looks like it is near to a sweat gland ? so might be heat sensitive ? I was allergic to grass, house dust mite, and a few other random things. I got asthma, but rashes and skin reactions are common signs too. marie.
