I have spent hours on this site reading remedies and course of action. And, I'm still pulling my hair out. It's my 4 year old. He has PI. He screams bloody murder when I try and put Rhuli, baking soda/vinegar paste or calamine lotion. But, I do it anyway. He does let me put Arbonne Diaper Cream on without a fuss but it didn't seem to do anything. We've done baking soda or oatmeal baths. He's taking Hyland's Poison Ivy/Oak every 2 hours even though they don't give guidelines for 4 year olds. We are on day 5 and still new patches are showing up. I've washed his bedding and all his clothes. I sprayed the shoes he wore with alcohol. How do I know if it's become systemic? I've ready quite a few post asking how to clean upholstered furniture without any clear suggestions. And, now I have two suspicious spots. How do I get ahead of this? How do I give my son some relief?
