At the time I had never heard of Gianotti-Crosti Syndrome but after much research, I found that it is very common in children as young as 1.5 months. It is a reaction on the skin to a viral infection and is harmless and oral antihistamines can be given for symptomatic relief of itching.
After much research, it was very clear to me what I would do if I were treating my own child using Ayurvedic principles. To reduce the Pitta in the rakta dhatu and to balance the excess pitta in the liver. I suggested she reduce all foods that are pungent and that she try a cooling herbal juice or shake for her son consisting of the following herbs: one large bunch of fresh cilantro, cumin, fennel, and coriander powder. She added a banana (go mommy!) to this and gave it to him once a day for 3 days. The results are amazing!

Remarkable difference and this is why I LOVE practicing Ayurveda! Thanks, Jenny for letting me share! Your little sweet Ben is so precious! I love y’all dearly!
