Sores on legs and butt. Allergic reaction? .Kayla+2[I DID VBAC!] 50 kids; Wisconsin 1317 posts

Dd started to have tiny little sores popping up about 2 weeks ago. We started introducing fruits with supper a few weeks ago. She's been eating veggies for 3 months now, and never had any reaction. Have you ever heard of sores as an allergic reaction? They are on her upper thighs right by her diaper, on the crease of the diaper, a couple on her but, but most of them are on her vagina. There is about 10 total, and most of them have poped up in the last few days. If more keep coming up I'm going to cal her pedi. They are a little bit smaller than the size of a pea. They don't seem to bother her, but I don't want to leave them untreated. I've been keeping them clean and dry. Have you ever heard of this as an allergic reaction? She's 7 months btw.

Let her go diaperless as much as possible. It could be yeast, diaper rash, allergy, .... anything really.

are you sure it's because of the fruit? Has she had any fever or anything?

Oh I should have mentioned that she also had JUST gotten over a yeast infection like a day before the 1st sore came up. We still have ointment from that, and I've been trying to keep that on the sores, and it doesn't seem to be helping any.

Let the sores be for now. You might be irritating it even more.

Let her go diaperless and check with the doctor

No I'm not sure, that's why I'm asking. That's just the only thing I can think that changed in her diet, was adding the fruit in. She's been perfectly happy other than when she's teething.

No, not at all. They don't even look raw, they are totally dry. Idk how to describe them. And I'm on my phone right now otherwise I'd post a picture of one.

hmmm, yeah I would take her in and have an allergy test done (not the prettiest process) but I think if you ave any concerns about her being allergic you've gotta address it with her pedi. I ask about the fevers and sores because my son just got over hand foot and mouth disease which is very common in toddlers. He had it in his privates first, but he also got a fever that was the first sign.
