Update on Gaby's rash...

Gaby’s rash seems to be here to stay since there has been NO CHANGE at all with my poor baby’s skin….

I have applied the cream the doctor prescribed (which is supposed to take 7 days to work) and I have also given her a couple of doses of Benadryl….

You would think SOMETHING would change, right? Well… no!

Poor little Gaby still has a rash and the spots seem to be getting worse (although I’m sure I’m being slightly exaggerated)…

The thing that frustrates me the most is that her pediatrician doesn’t seem to have a plan… he didn’t even give me a follow up appointment and when I left the office on Monday he just said “Call me on Friday!”…

What does he mean by “call me”? I’m planning on taking her back if there is no change by Tuesday morning… I guess I’d rather be that creepy mom that wants a solution right away! If her pediatrician doesn’t give me an answer, I’m determined to take her in to see either an allergist or a dermatologist!... Does that sound like a plan?

Adri,

Si necesitas un dermatologo avisame. La que esta viendo a Isabella y a Hugo es excelente. Esta en Hollywood. Es medio complicado conseguir citas con ella pero si le explicas que la bebe tiene un rash desde hace dias que no se quita, quizas te den la cita rapido. Es mas, te doy la info por si la necesitas: Dra. Ana Falabella 954 961 1200. Espero que Gaby se mejore!

has she been eating something different? do you have new plants in our around the house? has she been going someplace new during the day?

Rosanna: Gracias por el dato! Despues te cuento!

Maggie: No.. nothing has changed.. although she did crawl in grass that was recently cut and treated with pesticide. I'm thinking that's what caused the rash! Hopefully it will clear up soon!
Thanks for the concern!
