    Default rice cereal rash?

    Did anyone's LO get a facial rash from eating rice cereal? I am trying to figure out if rice cereal is causing LO's eczema to flare up on his face. I looked at the box that I've been using and it has soy. I think soy flares up his eczema. We have been trying oatmeal and his face seems to be getting better. Just wondering if anyone else had the same problem.

    As far as I know rice is one of the things that are least likely to cause allergy. So I would think it is the soy. Which brand are you using? We used Earth's Best and it doesn't contain anything other than rice. Maybe you can try one of those and see whether the rash will get better or worse.

    we were using Parent's Choice, which is Wal-Mart brand. His face looks really good today. He hasn't had cereal since Friday.

    you can skip the rice its realy not needed.
    my guess would be the soy or other additives also.
    do you use a wipe on his face after the rice? SOme kids are bothered by wipes or soap.
