alot of questions again

Hi it’ s me again…  the mom with the baby with a zinc deficiency. We tried the NAN but she did not take to it to well…  she is doing well on S26 now… . She will be 6 months 29 November but because I only started with S26 now, should I stay on no.1 for one more month?

Also she does not get the rash on her bum witch I’ m grateful for but she kind of sweats a lot… . I noticed this on her feat and hands. When I wipe it of then almost immediately there will be sweat again. Now the reason I’ m mentioning this is because I think this is causing the rashes under her arms and in her folds and in her neck and behind her ears… . The ones behind her ears gets like open wounds.
Should I just go buy the quadiderm (spelling) and rub that on when it starts getting red or what do you suggest?
can i give her a double dose Zinplex sometimes .... you know one 5ml in morning and one 5ml in evening... or does the zink thing have nothing to do with this?

O another weird thing… .. I think she is allergic to mozzy bites… . When a mozzy bites her it makes this rash like appearance and when you touch it, it is like a hard patch of skin with a lot of little bumps. The ozone (medizone) and natural oils seem to be working for this but should I worry ? do you have any suggestions? O yes and it itches… . She scratches like made there! I’ m trying to keep the mozzies out but it’ s not always possible. I just want to know…  can this be harmful in any way if she is allergic.

o man i hope i did not confuse you with all my questions again :)

First question: Change to S26 2 when your baby is 6 months old.
Second question:Many babies sweat a lot at this age, but your baby does seem to be sweating more than usual. Please ask your paediatrician to see her about this.
Third question: Your baby appears to be developing a rash called seborrhoeic dermatitis. Please see a dermatologist about this
Fourth question: She is developing an allergy to mosquito bites which is called papular urticaria. Please also see the dermatologist about this rash.
