We took Elijah to the paediatrician ($150) and he thinks that Elijah's reflux and rash are related, i.e. an allergic reaction, most likely to dairy. He gave us a script for DermAid (which in the end didn't need a script) and told us to get QV cream and bath oil as well for the rash (all up $26.30). The medication for the reflux came in tablet form (how stupid is that?) and had to be made into a syrup ($60.95). I guess if he gets better, then it's priceless.
We have to try the meds for two weeks and if they don't work, then I have to go off dairy. Either that or give up breastfeeding and give him soy formula. No thanks. So hopefully this jolly expensive stuff works, because I live on milk, cheese and chocolate!
