It's Oklahoma. It's summertime. It's hot. Rashes are common. I got that.
DD is 14. We got her a new helmet at the end of last spring's ball season. She used it about a month, then went to school ball, where she didn't catch many games.
We lugged the gear to several tryouts and practices over the fall, but not too many games.
She has complained before of getting a rash on her chin from her helmet. Yesterday, she was up at the high school, catching for the Sr pitcher's lessons. We were indoors and she didn't even have the helmet on for the whole hour. Maybe 30 minutes tops, total time. When she was done her whole chin and around her lips were all covered with a rash. Today she still has it, and she says it feels like it has spread.
She also is playing TB where she is one of 3 catchers, but the rash has never stuck around for very long after a game.
Any ideas as to what is causing this? Or ways to prevent it? We need to figure it out over the summer, before she has a constant rash during school ball that carries over into her school day. (A girl has to look good, you know.)
