    Just came back in from a job interview, my mum was watching Harry and she said he'd napped the whole time (i was away around 2 hours) I thought this was strange as he NEVER naps that long!
    He woke up and I went to change his bum & he has a big rash all up his wee bum cheek/leg. It looks like an allergic reaction. I gave him new porridge this morning so can only presume its been that. He seems absolutely fine in himself other than that epic nap but dunno if that's just a coincidence?
    I'm not panicking too much cos he seems totally fine but just wanted some advice on whether I should phone someone or not?
    Heres a wee picture, excuse his wee bum lol!

    I'd call your GP and see if you can speak to someone, and of not maybe give NHS24 a ring. I've rung a couple of times and there always really good. Then they can decide xx

    Ouch that looks sore! Defo looks like a reaction, have you changed nappy or wipe brand? Give Your Doc a call and mention his age and hopefully they'll see you quickly x

    Yeah, definitely looks like an allergic reaction of some kind. I'd get him seen if it were me.

    Might be the mango, Hun. I know a few kids through work who have reactions to certain fruit and mango always seems to be one of them. Though its mostly always of they have fresh mango. I'd Devo get him checked out, the doc might give you a cream to give him or some anti histimine (sp?) medicine to bring the rash down. Hope he's ok x

    I phoned the dr and I've got an appointment at 3 for him. The rash is actually already starting to go down but still gonna take him to get checked just to be on the safe side! Xxx

    They had pretty much gone completely by the we got to the drs but I showed her the pic & she said she thought it was a reaction to something. She didn't seem too concerned tho. She praised me for taking the picture tho, felt like the teachers pet lol
    Thanks again ladies, your all wonderful! Xxx
