As always, it’s important to let your Alpha provider know about any medical conditions, recent illnesses, or current symptoms that your child has. For infants, this includes conditions the mother had during pregnancy and complications during the birth process or neonatal period, such as premature birth. Please be sure to tell your provider if your child has recently been on antibiotics or other prescription medication; if he or she has been exposed to new cleansing products or home remedies; if he or she has a history of skin conditions, allergies, infections, immune system problems, or underlying conditions; has a rash elsewhere on his or her body; has been exposed to any contagious diseases; if other family members or close contacts have a rash; of travel or exposure to insects or animals; if any conditions run in the family such as skin rashes or allergies; and if your child has a fever, cold symptoms, irritability, vomiting or diarrhea, is not eating or urinating well, or other signs or symptoms that you’ve noticed.
