The parents of a 7-month-old girl brought their daughter to the ED after noticing that her skin was peeling all over her body. She also had diarrhea. They noticed that she seemed much more irritable than usual and was drooling a lot. The ED doctors asked about the infant’s recent health, and the parents explained that she had been suffering from severe atopic dermatitis. The pediatrician had prescribed antibiotics and topical steroids, but they suspected a food allergy since her parents had been feeding her a restrictive diet of rice milk. Lab tests showed the baby was anemic.
