My 8 week old has eczema. I'm on an elimination diet (dr sears). Last Monday we went to see a dermatologist as the eczema was sooo bad and other doctors had not been helpful.
We were given steroid/cortizone creams and a syrup to give ds2 once a day (also a steroid). All these things cleared up his eczema (I'm still on the diet).
Today we went for a follow up with the doc, and basically it's carry on as we have been - but give ds2 the steroid syrup three times a week for another month and then go back and see him again. This bothers me, as it's just pushing medicine at us and not looking at what triggers the eczema.
Anyway, basically I'm asking if it does any good continuing with the elimination diet whilst ds2 is on these meds? When can I start adding things back into my diet (been doing the ED for three weeks)? Will he even get a reaction from anything I eat considering he's on medicine?
thanks in advance!
