My 8 year old has a cluster of moles that have been growng for years on her shoulder, but we're afraid to remove them by sedating her. There has been some minor bleeding in between the clusters because they itch and irritate her and we clean them with perixode and a q-tip very carefully. I don't want to put calamine lotion on them for the itching.

She now has a very big rash on her arm that will not go away with every type of cream and ointment that the doctor has prescribed. Even the trimacolone w/eucerine burns, the calamine lotion burns, the vaseline burns and only gold bond medicated powder soothes the rash.

She has red eyelids that look like she has not slept all week. Her eyes have been like this for almost a month.

I have taken her back forth to the doctor but, don't know what else to do. We cannot get an appt to a allergist for her large rash on her arm until Jan. 2009 and the children's dermatologist can't look at her moles to diagnose removal until April 2009.
