My husband has always had eczema. While I don't like it, he uses a cream pretty much daily to help it. It helps the eczema, but I don't like the idea of using medicine daily. Regardless, I've figured it's his body, so he can do what he wants with it.
Our 2 month old is now developing eczema, just as our 3 year old did when she was a baby. The 3 year old no longer has it and we didn't really do anything to treat it besides applying lotion regularly. I've been looking into what I can do for my 2 month old and it's sparked some ideas in my head in regards to my husband.
He has the eczema, hayfever, and stomach issues. This is all making me begin to wonder if it's an allergic reaction or imbalance in his gut. What can we do to test this? Should he take probiotics? If he does, what brands do you recommend?
Then what can I do for my 2 month old? I'd like to keep her gut virgin as long as possible, so I don't want to give her probiotics. Could me taking some help her? Anything I can apply topically to help? My friend recommended coconut oil. Anyone have any luck with that? Other suggestions?
