She comes out in a rash when the sunscreen is applied

Hi
We have always used baby/toddler sunscreen on our 2 year old daughter. For the first few weeks she is fine and then suddenly comes out in a rash when the sunscreen is applied. I changed to the Cancer Council Toddler Milk and was relieved that she did not come out in a rash = until yesterday! We bought the large pump bottle in September through the Cancer Council and it is good through to December 2009. I am not sure what to do as I live in Brisbane and being sun smart is so very important.

Answer: Hi, Babies and children have sensitive skin which is why we recommend doing a small patch test first. If the rash persists, talk to your family doctor. Susan
