So DS, 10 months, had pretty bad eczema starting around 6 months, but I thought I had finally identified one of the main triggers, almonds and peanuts in my diet. Cut them out and sure enough, skin cleared up beautifully. But the eczema is back again in a serious way on his poor face. No almonds, peanuts or other nuts in my diet (nor his) and I'm not sure what else is causing this. Clear, beautiful skin for about 2 months until the first of November and now it's a constant problem.
My questions are:
What foods cause eczema to flair for your DC?
How soon after ingesting the problem food(or thru mama's milk) did you see a "new" patch of eczema?
Part of my problem in identifying the trigger(s) is not knowing how quickly he will have a reaction after the problem food is ingested.
Many people around me blame the eczema on the cold weather, but I'm skeptical and am leaning towards the food-based causes.
Your wisdom is appreciated!
