I have a newly turned 1 year old dd that has had dry skin since birth and is suffering from eczema now evenmoreso during our dry winter season.
I am looking for input from folks that have tried out an elimination diet (im still bf'ing so I will also be giving an ed another go along with my dd) and I will also reply to this post in a couple months to let everyone know how this journey is going
some things I do to help so far :
totally eliminated dairy from dd s diet (about 95% from my diet) we do use goats milke and homemade almond milk
only use natural cold pressed virgin/ organic oils on both our skins (we dont use any products) castor oil and emu oil are the best for her eczema and vit e oil, almond oil and coconut oil are great too
bathe with lavendar essential oil and collidal oatmeal homemade, we dnt scrub but massage her skin with oil in the tub and about an hour after before bedtime, and sometimes again the next morning (especially her dry spots)
any other suggestions?
