Sensitive Skin or Latex Allergy?

A couple times the day care has called saying that my son (18 months) looks like he has a few hives - normally neck/face area. We couldn't find the source of the irritation. A few weeks ago, he had tubes put in his ears, and on his back, where the electrode pads were located, you could see the outline in a red irritated shape for about 4 days post surgery. Then, last week a friend bit him. (Gotta love this age...) We put some neosporin and a band-aid over the spot before he went to bed. In the morning, I removed the band-aid, but we...

Mysterious Respiratory Distress

My 7 yr old son was recently in the ER for breathing problems. They kept him in the hospital for 2 days & gave him albuterol & steroids until his oxygen levels were normal.

Pulmicort/steroid Inhalers for 2 Year Old

My son just turned 2 on Saturday, and has yet another URI with fever and wheezing and his lungs are retracting again. I took him to the doctor this morning and he was prescribed Pulmicort along with his albuterol neb. I do agree it would help to take preventative measures since he gets sick so often, but I am concerned about him taking steroids for any length of time. We are going to start it today [2ml vial twice daily] and see the doctor again in a month to see how it's going. I read the list of side-effects, and I wish I hadn't, because...

I'd like to use a baby lotion on my 10 month old daughter, but everything I've tried seems overly perfumed for a baby. Can anyone recommend a light yet effective lotion that is as natural as possible? Thanks!
