Baby Bear loves the dog. When he sees the dog, he wriggles and laughs, trying to touch him. Unfortunately his skin appears not to love the dog so much.
Since he was born we have battled red, dry, scaly rashy skin. It's been WAY worse this week. It is the dog? Is it the heat? Is it the short sleeved shirts that allow his little fingers to scratch? Is it the milk formula we returned to after a failed two-week Nutramigen test?
We need ANSWERS!!! It's about time to seek help from a specialist. Baby Bear is so itchy and uncomfortable, it breaks my heart. So far the pediatricians have not had answers.
We're not sure it's the dog. Plus we all adore the dog. I have a feeling the dog will stay unless it's absolutely confirmed without a doubt that he is the allergen.
For now, please shoot a few prayers our way as we navigate the treacherous waters of insurance, referrals and finding a good specialist, whether an allergist or a dermatologist I am not sure.
