"It's a sensitivity rash" (A what? So vague) "I know, that's the least helpful thing I can say, since we don't know what's causing it" (At least he's honest, lol).
Isaac has these little white bumps that have emerged all over his legs and arms in the past 2 weeks. Actually, since his ear tubes, but I don't think there could be any correlation there. Just a coincidence. They aren't red, they don't itch, but they have definitely spread. At first it was just a few bumps on the inside of his knee, now they are all up and down both legs and both arms.
The trick is finding out what's causing it. It could be outside (i.e. pollen), it could be a food allergy, it could be something new in our house. Or, it could be several things together....i.e., sensitivity to one type of pollen + another type of pollen + exposure to a food that he's sensitive too (but might not normally cause a reaction) = bumps. In the past few weeks, he has acquired a new blanket (made by me with fabric and ribbon from Joann's), new pillowcases, and the possible biggest culprit...a new area rug in his room. Really hoping it's not the rug, since I love it, but it would be an easy fix I suppose.
