In a heartfelt Instagram post, singer and actress Mandy Moore shared her concerns about her two-year-old son Gus, who has been diagnosed with Gianotti Crosti syndrome, a rare childhood skin condition.
On July 28, Moore took to her Instagram Stories to share a photo of Gus with a red rash on his body and opened up about their journey to understanding his health issue.
Initially, Moore and her family were unsure of the cause of the rash, considering possibilities like eczema, poison oak, or allergies.
They sought medical help from various specialists, including urgent care, pediatricians, dermatologists, and pediatric dermatologists. Despite facing this challenging situation, Moore expressed admiration for her little one’s resilience and positive attitude throughout the process.
Gianotti Crosti syndrome is characterized by a papular rash with blisters on the skin of the legs, buttocks, and arms. In Gus’ case, the condition appeared without being accompanied by a cold, causing the rash to manifest on his legs, feet, and the backs of his arms.
Doctors informed Moore that there is no specific cure for the condition, but it usually resolves on its own with time.
To provide relief to Gus, they prescribed a steroid cream and Benadryl to alleviate the itching. However, it may take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks for the rash to subside.
Despite the challenges, Moore emphasized the resilience of children and expressed her gratitude that Gus’s condition is limited to an itchy skin condition. She and her husband, Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith, share two sons, Gus and Oscar “Ozzie” Bennett Goldsmith, born in October 2022.
As Gus continues to face his condition with a smile, Moore’s heartwarming post serves as a reminder of the complexities of parenthood and the strength children exhibit during challenging times.
