Allergic to Body Excretions?

My poor little girl. I think she is allergic to her body excretions in general. As a baby, I had to change her within 5 minutes of a poopy diaper or she would start to get welts on her rear. She would turn pink-faced right away with drool and easily developed drool rash (it just seemed to appear out of nowhere after a little drool.) Now, check out her face. She has had an awful runny nose for over a week now. She is having a hard time shaking this head cold. She has been taking 3 hour naps, and today was no exception. It was actually closer to 3.5 hours today.
She has this scabby sore nose, but this morning she woke up with a rash on her face (right under some dried snot). I am sure she wiped her nose a couple times and spread it all over her face and it sat on her face and caused a reaction. There are no bumps anywhere else on her body. I put some hydrocortisone on it this afternoon, so we'll see if that helps.

Poor girl...Jayden will probably have the same type of skin...at least when it comes to her face. She hasn't had the diaper rash issues.
