UPDATE – DIAGNOSIS – It’s a fungus caused by chlorine in swimming pools suppressing his skin’s ability to regulate itself.
Our youngest, 21 months, has psoriasis alba – I think I spelled it right….basically white patches on his cheeks, most flat but one or two raised a touch. The Mrs is not happy at all, and is wondering what can be done.
I imagine he’s reacting to some chemical in the baby shampoo or creams used in trust by my wife. No names, but the manufacturer shares a name with an ex-US President who was keen on fighting in Vietnam, and assassinating other Presidents.
I see on wikipedia the condition typically lasts about a year. He seems perfectly healthy in all other respects, but that’s not how Mum views the situation. Does anyone have any tips? I try to suggest using pure coconut oil instead of creams to deal with skin dryness, but advertising is so powerful, and that’s winning the game currently.
Has anyone experienced this condition? What do you suggest?
