My 12 month old son has hives. I am not sure what causes it. They seem to come and go throughout the day. He seems worse when he wakes up from a nap in his crib but there hasn’t been any changes to anything in his bed or any changes in soaps used to wash them. I changed his sheet just in case but it didnt make a difference.
I have recently changed him to an older baby formula, in the same parents choice (walmart brand) formula, that he has always had, but he has been on that for over a week and the hives just started yesterday.
Yesterday I gave him some finger foods that he never had before and I gave the cat a flea treatment. I didnt give him the finger foods today just in case, but hes still breaking out. I am fairly certain he didnt touch the cat though as the cat usually stays away from him. I also used a different brand of diapers, but the hives seem to be all over his body, and face, and not particularly in the diaper area though sometimes they are. Does anyone have any ideas? I cant tell if its exposure to the diapers or what since they seem to be coming and going constantly and im at a loss of how to figure it out. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, or any information on babys with hives that could be helpful id appreciate it.
he hasnt had any vaccinations lately, because he had the (regular not swine) flu a couple weeks ago and still has a cough. I was waiting til he got better.
