My daughter developed a severe skin rash. It started on her scalp and basically moved down her body. It is on her forehead but not her face, on her arms, legs and back but not her hands or feet. It is worst on her back, shoulders and lower legs. It seems to start to go away then flares up again. The bumps are tiny and not very red, in fact they appear light on her skin (she is Chinese born and has medium skin tone). She has scratched herself raw in many places so has scabs related to that. I took her to the dr but they didn't have a clue so prescribed a strong steroid cream that has helped some but the rash is still there. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any ideas? No new soaps, shampoos, detergents etc.

Thanks

  • Is she eating artificial sweeteners? If so stop feeding them to her. Take them all out of her diet - use stevia or agave instead- healthful. READ Labels of everything that goes into her mouth including vitamins- even toothpaste because everything has them look for SucraloseSplendaAspartameAspartic AcidPhenylalanine

  • Charmaine!You are so right about Stress and how it really can create health issues. It is so hard to believe but it is the truth. God bless you- I have been working on a documentary about Stress and its association to Autoimmune Diseases and truly when I read the symptoms, I think it is impossible that Stress can produce all of these- but do you know that you are absolutely right- Stress really is a contributor and I site locations where people can read about the experiments that prove it. Now this is one cause of autoimmune, there can be other causes too, and certainly some have very specific causes, like Chagas Disease, but others do not. Thank you so much for helping me to "remember" the truth. I am gonna post my doc. as soon as possible. : )see my movies on youtube, search for glarstout
