Sick of My Skin!

Anyone has any ideas or products that work well for acne? I had a lot of skin trouble after my first child and ended up having to spend a fortune to see a dermatologist. Now that the 2nd has come along so has my acne. I am planning on breastfeeding for as long as I can and the products the dermatologist had me on I can not use. I would like to find a product that works and is not too harsh on the skin as the prescription products. Any ideas?

Constipated 2 Year Old

My 2 year old son has been having trouble going poop. When he finally goes, it doesn't seem like it should have hurt that bad. It's not hard or anything. But he throws a fit every time he has to go. Then when i change him, he HATES to be wiped. This is all sort of recent, so i'm not sure why all of the sudden this is such a big deal to him. He acts like it hurts to be wiped but he has no redness or rash or anything on his bottom. I don't know what to do if he is constipated. He drinks prune juice and apple juice and a ton of water. He is a...

Severe Ezema & Croupe Cough

Hello! My son has severe ezema, and croupe caugh he has had both since he was a few days old. He was diagnosed with the ezema at 8 days old, we have moved to a cooler city, since the heat really bothers him. Everytime he breaks out, he gets the croupe a few days later. I refuse to dress him head to toe, since he then breaks out more, and screams so he is always, most of the time, in shorts and a tee. I do not know what to do, he have been working with our pediatrician and he gives us the steriod caugh medicine and the high cortizone...

4-Year-old's T-T Hurting at Night Only

My daughter's "T-T" hurts her occasionally at night (and she comes in to my room crying.) I generally put her in the tub, clean her and put vaginal itch/burn cream on her. She falls asleep after that fine and is always fine in the morning and next day. I am resisting taking her to the doctor as #1 I don't want her to be on any more antibiotics and #2 It's not every night and never during the day. She is only slightly red on her outer lips at the time, no other symptoms. I ask her if it burns when she pees and she says no. Any ideas on...

11 Month Old Has Had Fever for over a Week.

My almost one year old has had an ongoing fever the past week. I took her in twice to the pediatrician's office and they've taken blood tests, urine test and checked and told me everything is fine. I don't want to give her Motrin every day. Also her stool and breath has smelled really bad. I am tired of not getting an answer. Has anyone out there encountered this and what do you recommend? Thanks!

Severe Diaper Rash During Flu

My son who is 15 months old has had the flu for about 4 or 5 days now and has awful and I mean really awful diaper rash from all the diarrea he has had. What can I do to help clear it up and make it less painful. I am using just a spray bottle of warm water and paper towels to clean his bottom & was putting on generic Desitin but that doesn't seem to be helping. Any advice would be appreciate as we are both miserable and the doctor can't see us until next week.

Vomiting vs Spitting Up

Dear Mamas, Anyone have a clear definition of vomiting and spitting up? I'm trying to figure out if my four month old is vomiting. Also, my baby has had a pretty bad case of cradle cap and scratches his head quite a bit. I wash his head every day and brush out the dried bits but every morning his scalp is bad again with yellow scabs. I've covered his hands with mitts, I'm filing his nails and I've put caps on his head. I even washed his scalp (once) with head and shoulders. In the evenings I leave one arm free, the rest of his...
