Skin Reactions on a child
Posted on 30 July 2012 06:29 PM
My family moved to a very hot climate, and our 2 year old is now suddenly suffering heat-rash looking bumps mainly on hands and feet and some peeling on fingers and toes. With your extensive knowledge on diet and healing, is there anything you know of we can do to help this condition? 

The doctor we talked to recommended cortisone cream, but it is not ideal to use all over the surface of hands and feet of a toddler.

This doesn't sound like a heat rash although it could be exacerbated by the high heat and resulting excess sweat. It sounds more like a type of eczema. If it is, it may be linked to a possible allergy. Whatever it is, the following suggestions should help in relieving it. 1) Soaking in water and baking soda will help and after the bath dust affected areas with baking soda. 2) Make sure your child is drinking enough water and staying properly hydrated. 3) A soothing salve of aloe vera with a few drops of essential oils such as lavender and tea tree will be very soothing and healing as well.
