He's allergy: need to be mindful of the foods I eat
January 9, 2022
Good day people! How's your weekend? Did you do something productive or just spend it resting. Well, we all deserve to rest our bodies for a while.
It's been three days since my baby wakes up at midnight and stay awake until morning so I and my partner also don't have enough sleep. Then when morning comes my baby will sleep until afternoon or evening.
I shared here an article about our simple celebration of my baby's third-month-old.
My baby's skin that time was fine though he still had redness in his cheeks but not that severe. We thought it's because of the soap we used so we changed it as per the doctor advice when we went to the center. Then last January 5, his face suddenly went red again and it's like there are red dots as if the blood is formed. It's like a wound. So I told my partner to bring our baby to the clinic so that we will able to know what's happening to the skin of my baby.
Tomorrow morning comes, we immediately went to the clinic but many patients are also waiting and our number is 11. We need to wait until our number is called. When it's already our turn, only one person plus the patient is allowed to enter so my partner told me that I should be the one who accompanies our son. The person who's assisting us looked at my baby's face and asked some questions. Also, they get the weight and temperature of my baby.
She then told us that the doctor who will look at my baby is a derma doctor but she will arrive at 1 in the afternoon and we need to be back in the afternoon, fortunately, we won't have to fall in line again.
My sister is also checking how's my baby so they keep on calling us and asking for the update. Even though my baby has sick, he's still jolly and cheerful. He loves to listen as if he understands us.
When we went back to the clinic, the doctor assisted us and look at my baby's face. She said the rashes are a lot. I told her that it suddenly became like that. She gives prescriptions to us.
These are the prescriptions that we need to buy for our baby. We only buy two of them since our money at that time was short. One is an ointment for his face and the other is an antibiotic for allergy. The other one which we didn't buy yet is for his scalp. The doctor also told me that I shouldn't eat lean foods such as chicken, fish and eggs.
My father called and asked us what happened so I told him about what the doctor told me. He asked if we were able to buy all the medicines and so I told him that we didn't, my father then said that he will give money to me so that we can buy the last medicine for my baby. My sister is the one who buys the medicine and just delivered it here in the house.
After two days of putting the ointment in his face, my baby's skin was back to normal again and it's soft. The medicines are effective, it's maybe the reason why they are costly. I'm happy to see the result of it, my baby didn't rub his face because it didn't itchy anymore.
Now I need to be careful and mindful of the foods that I eat. Maybe I should eat more veggies now, I don't mind as long as it's for my baby's sake. I don't want his allergy back again.
Aww mom's love. You should really be mindful because it is not only you that you have to take care to, you have a son now.
