Hey guys, on and off for the past couple days I will be changing Brody's diaper and one of his feet will be swollen and firey red. It alternates which foot it is and he never acts like it hurts, he doesn't seem to have any try skin there, etc. We haven't introduced any new foods so I'm pretty sure it's not an allergy. His clothes are pretty loose and he's only 7 months old so he's not standing or anything....this ever happened to anyone?? I'm thinking about calling our urgent care line because I don't want to ignore something that could be bad but I feel like that might be over reacting..PLEASE HELP if you can!!

My ds gets this too but i discovered it was coz i was holding his feet up while i was changing his nappy and his skin is apparently sensitive. It would look very red and scared me several times...so it may be that?

Well I've noticed ever since he has discovered his feet that he is constantly pulling on them...could they just be that sensitive??? I am open to any suggestions of what could be causing this because dh and I are stumped!!

I'm not sure of what this could be.. Maybe he is chewing on them when he is playing with them.. My ds likes to suck his toes.. lol I would put a call into your Dr just to have it checked out..
