DD is 4 m/o with moderate eczema. Some nights she is up every hour and a half for over an hour unable to be consoled because she itches until she bleeds or oozes. Last night was one of them and I. AM. EXHAUSTED. Its been going on for months!
I have eliminated dairy, eggs soy and gluten since thanksgiving (very carefully reading lables) and recently (the past month) I have eliminated peanuts, shellfish, corn, eggplants and avacados (DH is allergic to the latter 2). The past couple weeks I took out coconut everything and rice.
I am eating veggies, and fruits, flax seed oil, EVOO, hemp protein, salmon, sprouts, balsamic vinegar and ACV.
I dont know how much more I can get rid of. In fact, if i get rid of something else i'd like to re-introduce something else, but what? Part of me just wants to say "to hell" with the whole thing because as she is a teeny tiny bit better, she is still flaring up and I am still using hydrocortisone on her much more than i'd like (seems like I'm doing a weekly round since thats how often she has a really bad (angry, red, raised, itchy, oozy) flare up.
We use free n clear all, double rinse with vinegar in the load.
seriously... I'm so done with eczema. I cried about 5 times in the middle of the night last night with her because thats how much she woke up. I know I've written several posts on this but I am so lost and out of ideas. :(
