Does any of your LOs have allergy to rice cereal? My LO has got some rashes (red patch with lots of little humps) after consuming it. She is a TBF baby. PD thought that it is eczema. Neither my husband nor me have eczema or any kinda asthma history. The rashes vanished after we stopped giving her rice cereal.

It could be the rice cereal, or possibly traces of soy or gluten that caused it. It depends on the place it was manufactured as well as the contents in the cereal itself. Better to go to the doctor.
