What do you do when your child refuses to wear clothes?? She has not worn underwear in 3 years. Only wears one outfit to school- over sized thin short sleeve long shirt (looks like a dress) she wears it over knit pants that she keeps pulled below her but. Will not wear tennis shoes or socks. Wears one pair of shoes that rub blisters on her feet. She is getting worse everyday.
Complains of the car and her bed being too tight almost like she is becoming claustrophobic. Wants to leave the house in only a blanket or naked. Hates her booster seat, has taken the pads and side arms off of it. Pulls her seatbelt-stretches it to keep it from touching her. Refuses to wash or comb her hair this past week. Has missed school this week and we had to take her to the ER finally.
New diagnosis is Allodynia since clothing hurts her skin and her scalp and hair hurts. Had labs and MRi and they came back normal. We have tried OT in the past with some small results, now she doesn't want to go because they want to do the brushing technique. she says it hurts. We are desperate to find fast help for her. Any suggestions??
