We have been to dermatologists and allergy doctors. Even the patch tests with various foods were all negative- thus proving she has no food allergies.
We have used all kinds of ointments, oils, lotions, etc.
But NOTHING is working.
Her hands are so raw, I put socks on them at night to keep her from scratching.
I feel like we are tumbling hopelessly in a spiral of irritated skin, endless lakes of ointments and doctors. I know not where to turn next, different doctors, different ointments. . .
Every doctor says the cause cannot be precisely pinned.
What am I to do? My poor sweet little daughter?!
Yet, I hope in God, and believe He will bring healing in some form.
And in the midst of confusion as a Mom and hopeless feelings of despair. Wishing I could crawl into the laps of my own parents and hide my head from the world of trying to make choices and decisions I don't understand, I know that God IS good.
And so I give thanks:
- my daughter is happy, when her hands aren't bothering her.
- my kids play nicely together
- spring is in coming, and sunshine is in abundance.
- for uplifting music to encourage.
- for friends and prayers
