Hello, three days ago my little sister came home with purple and reddish little dots all over her thighs, they looked like little bruises, but very tiny.. they were pretty much like freckles but purple and reddish, they were on her front thighs.
We first thought it could be an skin allergy, but she didn't eat anything out of her usually on that day, I believe.
Then I remembered that I just purchased her two new pair of jeans for her, she wore one the day before that happened, and the other one on the actual day it happened.
The day before she had nothing, but on that day she had a lot of little dots that looked like bruises once she came back from school. Could it be due to the pants maybe being too tight, I asked her if they were too tight and if it hurts, she said is tight, but it didn't hurt. We will return it tomorrow and get a bigger size just in case.
Should we just wait it out and assume it was the pants, or should we still go to the doctor to see if it could be something else. She said it wasn't itchy and it didn't hurt. The dots are going away slowly, but I am worried we should maybe make an appointment or go to the E.R. today while is still there to see if it could be something worse.
Hi, we took her to the doctor several days ago and he said it was a reaction from the new jeans that we bought her and it'll go away on its own. He said it was caused due to not washing the jeans before she used it. The bruises are still there and it has now been 9 days, on her right leg it is very purple now, and on the left leg it looks like a fading color, kind of like freckles. I was wondering if you would know how long it should take for a reaction from unwashed clothes to go away, so that way we can go back to the hospital if is still there so they can check if it may be something else. She has an appointment for a physical, but that is three weeks away from now. Thank you.View Thread
Okay, so I was trying to find a good healthy yogurt for the kids to take to school as a snack. I was wondering what you guys thought of this.. or should I just stick to Yoplait and send it to them once in a while.. Here is the back of the yogurt for vanilla chai

Personally, I don't have any kids, but I do have very tiny siblings in elementary age.
I would never ever call them fat or chunky, however, my mother (the parent) has this thing for yelling to them if they eat candy or bring sweets from school, stop eating that, that's why your fat! or you'll get fat if you eat that!
I don't like that, I don't say it at the moment, but when the kids are away I bring it up to her.
I told her several times to stop yelling at them saying that they are fat because they eat that or they will become fat because they eat that. The kids are actually of normal weight, the two little girls are fairly thin and my little brother is of normal weight with a little more meat on him.
I've noticed that the littlest girl has become too dependent on her eating habits, she's 5, and whenever she wants to eat something, yogurt, or candy or ice cream, she always asks for permission and if she can have the whole thing. If I give her some ice cream on special occasions, she says only one small scoop cause I don't want to be fat.
Right now, they are very young and it seems like they don't have body image issues, I hope they don't get too concerned with what they eat and how they view themselves.
And back to the topic, no I would not call them fat or mention their weight. When I noticed they were getting a little heavy and lazy, I signed them up for swimming classes and now they love it, and they are all more fit and are always bugging me to take them to open swim sessions. View Thread
May I ask why artificial sweeteners are not recommended. And which ones should I look out for, I heard something about aspartame, but I am not aware of the other ones.
Also, I was talking about giving the children a couple of yogurts a week, not too much, just twice a week. My children aren't diabetic or have any medical conditions, and they are of normal weight and are now active swimmers.
They also take fruits on the other days when they don't take their yogurt, so I don't think they will develop a habit of eating packaged sweets as adults.
For now they love sugar, but we limit their sugar intake by not purchasing sweets and having a huge stack of fruits at home.
