Allergic Reaction to Cephalexin

To make a long story otherwise very healthy 4 y/o was prescribed cephalexin (and also at the same time griseofulvin) last week on Thursday. In hindsight, after the first dose I noticed some bumps on his arm and a pink patch on his cheek. But I did not think anything of it. After the 2nd dose all of a sudden I noticed crazy rashes all over his body-face, arms, legs, back, neck, ears (oh, his poor ears). I stopped the meds and took him in to the weekend clinic on Saturday-Dr. thinks is allergic reaction to the cephalexin (as...

Help with My Zit Face!!

I am 22 yrs old and getting married in June. Here in the last 6 months or so I have been having these terrible breakouts! I sure don't want to have them on my wedding day!! I have tried using organic products like Eminence and I have tried AcneFree facial products. Nothing is working for me!! The Acnefree burned and dried out my skin, and I was only using it 3 times a week. I do not have oily skin and usually only dry in the winter. I need some serious help with it for sure!! The breakouts are mostly on my cheeks and temples.

What Products to Use for an Infant Who Has a Rash

Hi I was wondering what products many of you recommend for an infant (2 month old) who has a very bad sandpaper like rash all over her body. Her back is actually peeling today since her skin has been so dry. I did take her to her Pediatrician who ruled out any illness. He stated it may be sensitive skin or she may be having a reaction to a food that I am eating as she also has very bad reflux along with it. I use dreft detergent on all clothes/linens that come into contact with her. I use Eucerin on her skin which does seem to help a...

Baby with Diarrhea

Hello, My 11 month old daughter has had diarrhea for 4 days. I spoke with her pediatrician on day 2 and she said as long as she was well hydrated, we shouldn't worry, it will pass. Then, the next day, she didn't seem to be wetting diapers so I took her to the local clinic (our pediatrician is about an hour away). They said she looked fine and they thought it would pass. Now we are going on day 5 and I am getting worried. Her poor little bottom is so sore and she's been fussy through it all. Has any one else had a baby with diarrhea this...

How to cure itchy head after cradle cap on infant?

I hope someone can help/or have experience with this. My 9 month old son had cradle cap as a baby that went away somewhat on his own (with help from me picking of course). Well for the past 5 months his head itches sooo bad that he scratches all day but most intense at night. For this reason he scratches himself awake every 3 hours at night (draining me!). I have seen 2 doctors and a dermatologist and all they keep giving me is steroid and pseudo-steroid creams that do not work and I refuse to keep using. I have tried olive oil, jojoba oil,...

Organic Shampoo and Conditioner for Me

Most shampoos make my scalp itchy (even Aveeno's new line). I am looking for a organic shampoo and condtioner that will not make my medium thick straight hair to dry or too oily. I was thinking of checking out Burt's Bees or Jason's organic shampoos. Have you tried either of these? Or can you recommend an organic shampoo/conditioner that you like? I am not wanting to spend alot of money (i.e. Arbonne).
