I am hoping someone has some advice for me- baby has severe weeping eczema on his cheeks primarily. We've seen improvement on his body in avoiding chemicals, soaps, etc. I am thinking I've got to find out if a dietary change will help him, because it's very horrible to watch him suffer at all.
I don't eat any dairy ever, I only occasionally eat chicken (rare) and only occasionally eat wheat. The only soy I eat is soy sauce. I eat a lot of raw fruits, some greens, and a lot of brown rice. I eat raw dates and almond butter, to make sure I am getting enough calories.
I've got to make sure I eat enough to EBF but what can I eat for a period of time that will help me determine triggers? Does anyone have experience with this, and successfully helped their LO overcome eczema? Please help! I want to continue to nurse as long as possible, so weaning is not an option right now.
