My daughter has just turned 2, and I have known since birth that something was not quite right. At birth I noticed her skin was very bumpy and dry on her arms and legs. This has never gone away. She has also been underweight for her first year and is now in the 25th percentile for her age and height. She usually has very little appetite and has always had hard (pellet like) stools. She also has interned feet and her shins are twisted. Our biggest concern is her inability to tolerate heat. If she is sick or when it is too hot out (or even if her bath is too warm) her temperature goes up dramatically (104.5C). This has brought us to the hospital where she was given tests for a urinary tract infection and of course tests for any other infections. She was healthy. It was a very warm day and we had no air conditioning which I knew was the cause. But I know she should be able to control her body tempertature through sweating. I have never noticed if she does sweat! I have been told to check on this through the summer. I have been doing some research online and the closet I have come to matching her symptoms is Hypohidotic ectodermal dysplaysia. But she is not missing teeth? Does anyone know of another condition that is similar?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
