Baby/toddler with exema here
So.. I am to testify here ha ha ha..
When I was a baby and toddler I had serious case of exema.
From what my mom told me it begin super early in my life
and nothing worked and so then she took me to this super
wiz doctor and he cured me with an oitment. Amen.
Now decades later when I looked back and asked all
the right questions here is picture I have of what happened
to me back then.
My mother did not nurse me exclusively for more then one week
and then she introduced cereal!!!! (now imagine me
who is nursing my little one for the last 4 years :-)...
and who would nurse her exclusively for 6 mo to horror
of my mother who would repeat every 5 minutes that my dd
will die of hunger. despite dd being plumpy, happy and
playful and energetic..
In any case.. back to my mother.. so she did pump me with
tons of wheat products and cows milk from early on and often.
She kept telling me horror stories and bully me about how
I better wait and see how it will be when my daughter will
get diarrhea and I will have to change 30! diapers a day..
4 years later.. my dd had one diarrhea and it was not even
diarrhea but rather loose stool and only for one day and
only 3 times really.. and only when she was about 2 years old
and eat something yacky somwhere :-).. so much about booling.
now.. why did I have the exzema when I was little God only knows
but I really think that this had something to do with the
outrageous approach to feeding me by my mom.
I would blame those cerials and cows milk but beyond that
probably fact how early it was served to me. and we all know
about how big damage it causes. to this day I have many
helath issues that I attribute to messing up my system
at that early age.. plus of course all mandatory vaccinations
that I got.. all of them.
So when you asked about exzema.. and no vax..
I would defenetely take test for allergies because the system
might simply be overloaded with some toxin and skin reacts first.
I would check usual suspects like wheat, milk and other of that
families.. and also acidic food like orange juice or even
I can tell you what my mother claims worked in those old days
supposedly there was some ointment with cortizon that was
super strong and some pinhead doctor prescribed on the
infant face - which was me. that ointment was some
foreign import called Oxycort and we are talking here
early 70's and few countries ago..
should you go that way and try? I would not do it if I had choice
because although it apparently worked and my exzema
well documented and diagnosed.. dissapeared completly from
now the drawback.. I never knew for all those years why
I could never use any cream on my face, or even shower water
would make my face red.. I have super sensitive skin
and anything other then destilled cold water make it red.
so.. here is the price I paid for my clean exzema free face...
oversensitivity as far as face is concerned..
how much cortizone is safe on face? who knows.. and
what side effects i had to deal with or have? the same no one
so that was story of one exzema baby. many many years later.
you can only imagine how different my approach to
anything "parenting" is from my mother's. It led to
actually major distancing from her because she
won't approve my healthy ways and I won't have it
any other way, yet she won't tollerate it literarly!
so.. be it
