After weeks of a rash, I finally figured out that my foster son is allergic to some laundry detergent.  We did a detective project to try and figure out what was giving him a rash.  We ruled out food.  We ruled out the soap.  We ruled out Mr. Bubbles.  We ruled out shampoo.  The only thing left was the soap his last location used.  I switched to a laundry detergent that has no fragrance/dye/etc. and washed all his clothes, towels, sheets and the rash started to go away.  I also put some anti itch cream on the rash.

In a few days the rash was gone.  It is amazing what cheap soap can do to your skin.  (yes, it was cheap industrial soap.)  With the Method no dye/no fragrance detergent, he got better almost immediately.

Until tomorrow...
