A few weeks ago, Bee had a rash around her mouth at every meal. This lasted for almost a week. We have not figured it out. Food allergies and hives are frustrating but nothing is more frustrating than a reaction with no known cause.
I have gone over each meal to see if there was a link but I can't find a common food among the meals. I can't think of anything that has changed like our soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. Nothing is different that I can tell.
The only thing we can pinpoint is the weather. We've had some crazy weather-hot one day, much cooler the next, a very windy day, and then the next is pouring rain.
My only thought is that the weather changes have affected Bee's allergies, brought out her eczema, and made her have a constant rash.
As an allergy parent, we have many instances of the unknown. You have to play the role of detective or doctor. It's such a relief when we are able to pinpoint a new allergy or a cause. Other times, we just have to live with knowing that we will never have it completely figured out. It's such a mystery! How do you find contentment in not knowing?
