Bless his heart, Gabriel has been absolutely miserable for the past few days.
He started with a runny nose. And then ran some fever. It took us a few days to figure out that he was teething. Again. This is #13 and #14. And they're big molars on the top. And this is the hardest time he's had with teething to-date.
And then, a few days after the teething got ramped up, this set in:
|The other arm and leg look just like this also.|
|His legs actually look worse than they appear here. |
I'm not a good enough photographer to do justice to skin issues on chocolate skin.
As awful as it looks, this is actually an answer to prayer. We've had G on an elimination diet for several months now trying to figure out what is causing him problems. His skin was doing much, much better. So we tried a "challenge" (adding something back into his diet to see if it caused a reaction).
Ummmm...yes. Yes, it did. And quick...and big...and bad. But now we're getting some answers and finally making progress.
It itches our poor baby and I can't wait for it to go away again now!
