This is what sunscreen does to Dash.

I'm not sure how well you all can see this, but Dash's face is all red and swollen around his poor nose & cheeks. It's hot to touch, has hives and is itchy (per the rubbing of eyes and scraping "with my claws" of the neck).

Despite not filling out a sunscreen authorization form, one of his teachers applied an unknown block to his sensitive little face. I haven't found much luck with a sunscreen yet that doesn't make his skin react. His doctor (that we saw today, because he also has a fever & threw up at school—allergy symptoms?) only suggested I go to "food allergy network" online and check around in the forums.

Anyone have some suggestions of mildest blocks to try? We had some luck with Neutrogena last year.


  1. Poor kid. Even with my history of skin cancer, I keep the kids out of the sun at peak hours and make them wear hats rather than use sunscreen very often, but if I hear of a good one I'll let you know.

  2. Ouchies, poor thing. Sorry, no suggestions here. I hope he feels better soon.

    On a positive note, I LOVE the monkey t-shirt.

  3. Daycare tells me that none of the kids had sunscreen applied that day, but I still have my doubts.

    And Dee, you know how perfect the monkey shirt is for Dash? We received TWO as gifts. Everyone knew.


I appreciate the time you've spent reading my post and would love to read your comments!
