    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    DD keeps getting major break-outs from some exposure here at home and I can't figure out where it's coming from. I am so frustrated. I am cleaning everything I can think of but she keeps breaking out, and I think the heat in the house (the AC is out again) is aggravating the situation. (She is sweaty and rubbing her skin which is spreading the contact I think). It's too hot for this shtuff. I've asked DH to take the kids out tonight so I can just scrub down the whole kitchen and playroom to see if I can get rid of it. If that doesn't work then toys are going into quarantine.

    Oh my! You have been having a terrible time with your A/C! Hopefully it will get fixed for good soon. Or, it will be Fall, and you won't need the A/C. Although, does it ever get cool in Texas?????

    Is Lily still eating the bread with the baked-in milk? Do you think that could be it?

    I guess I'd try throwing all the toys in the dishwasher or washing machine. What a nightmare having to go through all of them, though. Ugh.

    I put a bunch in the dishwasher and wiped down the rest. Frankly, we should replace the AC but we are too cheap. We have a home warranty and that is paying for all of the service calls and replacement parts - so we are letting it get fixed for free while we save for a new one. We just have to put up with their schedule, which is not always easy. DH's co-workers have been calling him Ebeneezer lol.

    No more bread with milk. Mommy can't stand the stress. :)
