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?
