allergic to normal cotton undies Lock Rss

I think my daughter is allergic to normal store bought cotton undies. Has any one else come across this problem? she has a red rash just on the fatty bit of her bum. it has only been since she has been in knickers, about 2 weeks. we've tried everything else ie the toilet paper, washing powder. any advice at all

thanks!

Its uncommon for kids to be allergic to cotton, my DD has eczema and cotton is the only thing I CAN put her in! Are the knickers 100% cotton, or is there something else they are made of as well?

One thought I did have was did you wash the undies before she wore them for the first time? I know some people who have bought clothes or undergarments and not washed them first because they have come in a plastic wrapping or whatever, and they have come out in a rash.

may b its the elastic.
