My 2 1/2 year old daughter started showing some red bumps last night (around her upper back/neck area) and when we checked her this morning the bumps had spread to her shoulders, chest and stomach area. They haven't turned into blisters yet, but Mikayla is non-stop scratching at them. I took her to the pediatrician and she said she didn't think it was chickenpox but didn't give me any other reason for why she might have a rash. She hasn't eaten anything different, we haven't changed our laundry detergent/softener, we've washed all her new clothes before she wears them. Do you have any idea what might have caused this rash and/or how to prevent it from further agitation?
you can develop an alergy (allergy) to something even if you have been using. might want to keep that thought open. What about new stuffed animals or babydolls? some of those things come from countries that use some not so safe chemicals and sometimes they slip through the cracks.
