Yikes! On Friday or so, Micah started getting dry, itchy-looking skin. By Sunday he had this going on:
It is covering him, literally from the top of his head, down to the bottoms of his feet. Covering his bum, scrotum, palms of his hands, his thighs and shoulders are the worst, and it covers his face (especially across the nose and cheeks) much like freckles.
I had lots of theories, and was pretty certain it was caused by our recent change in laundry detergent, but the doctor shot that down today by pointing out that it was in many places that his clothing wouldn't touch (like inside his diaper, on his feet and hands, and face). Perhaps an allergic reaction? Except that he hasn't complained about it once, he hasn't scratched it or pulled at his clothing, and he isn't on any meds, nor has he eaten any new foods.
Not Hand, Foot, Mouth since it's especially bad across his back (unheard of, apparently) and isn't in his mouth or nose at all.
She just sent us home with instructions to get some cream for his skin, and a "Good luck" sucker for each of the boys. Also, Grey hasn't gotten it, even though they literally have the same DNA, so it seems like it's not an allergic reaction, or a virus. Right?
Anyway. Any diagnoses?
