On Sunday I noticed that Claire had a rash all over her body. I thought it was a food allergy and gave her Benadryl, which had no effect. She didn't act like it was bothering her or itching, and she wasn't acting sick and didn't have fever. The rash seems to be getting better and drying out, but since it is still there today I took her to the pediatrician to have him look at it. I was supposed to take her in for a weight check soon anyway.
The doctor wasn't sure what the rash was. He didn't think it was a food allergy, said it could be a virus but she's not acting sick otherwise, and said it could just be eczema or dry skin. He told me to try switching soaps and putting lotion on her more often, and to bring her back next week if it's not better.
She weighed 17 lbs 10 oz on their scale today. She has gained 14 oz since 5 weeks ago, just shy of a pound. The doctor didn't seem overly thrilled by that and wants me to try to get her to drink more PediaSure and eat more. I have no idea how much she is supposed to be gaining, but she at least seems to be heading back up again on the chart.
