I posted in LWAB, but realized that this forum might be more appropriate:
DD2 has a rash on her face. I think its eczema. DD1 had something similar when she was older (about 5 months). This started early w/ DD2, at about 3 weeks old. I took out dairy and cleared up almost completely (80-90% better) within 4 or 5 days.
well, 9 days ago we went to a wedding and I ate the food there (including the most incredible cake I ever had!). Her face was still ok so I thought dairy would be ok. I had some the next couple days and then it started appearing again and yesterday it looked like it totally erupted again and I've been dairy free for about 6 days. I'm not sure if its itchy. she rubs her face against my shoulders when i hold her sometimes, but not always.
here are my theories:
1) went to a party yesterday and ate the food. tho i was very careful not to have dairy (mostly ate chips n salsa, fruit, crackers w/ deli meat, dessert w/no dairy... at least i think. i asked for all the ingredients that went in it)
2) other people have been holding her so maybe their clothes? (although if that was the case i think it would've gone away by now. that was last night)
3) i'm not getting enough water, so the dairy isnt flushing outta my system as quickly as it did the last time and my milk is more "concentrated" with it? maybe i'm really reaching for this one??
