Either way, after a bit of research, we learned that these rashes are for the most part harmless, and can be linked to a vitamin A deficiency. I was told increasing consumption of orange vegetables (carrots, sweet potatoes) might help, so that very day we started consuming them in mass quantities. We had sweet potato pancakes for lunch, cabbage with carrots for supper, sweet potato soup the next day. It helps that everyone loves sweet potatoes, and you want to know what? Within a day or two the rash went away, I couldn’t believe it.
Is there a causal relationship, or just a fateful coincidence? In the end it doesn’t make any difference, because I’m all for including orange veggies on a regular basis. It may be time to look for new recipes.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Vincci for the pic.
