This update is all smiles.
Mandy Moore shared how her 2-year-old son Gus is doing following his recent diagnosis with Gianotti-Crosti Syndrome—a type of childhood skin rash that can cause blisters on the legs, butt and arms. And though the condition can last as long as 6-8 weeks, the This Is Us alum is happy to report the 2-year-old is feeling good.
“Someone may have a crazy rash,” she captioned a July 31 Instagram Story featuring Gus smiling with a breakfast bowl in front of him, “but he’s still a champ!!”
And of the breakfast all over his face in the photo, the “Candy” singer added alongside the laughing-crying emoji, “He loves his oatmeal.”
Mandy first revealed that her and husband Taylor Goldsmith‘s oldest son had developed a skin condition in a lengthy post on her Instagram Stories detailing the steps it took to diagnose the rash.
“This sweet boy woke up with a crazy rash on Saturday am,” the 39-year-old wrote in her July 28 note alongside a picture of Gus. “We tried to deduce what it could be and did anything to help him find relief from the itch.” And it took a trip to a pediatrician, dermatologist and pediatric dermatologist before they were able to diagnose the rash as Gianotti-Crosti Syndrome.
