[QUOTE=motocita]hi, new here
my 2 year old dd has eczema all over her body and it's getting worse. not sure how long she's had it, because at first i thought it was just a heat rash. it's gotten worse with the warmer weather. i have some questions that i hope someone can answer.
1. i'm eliminating dairy for her and i. her dad and i both get mild reactions to dairy so i hope this will be the culprit. reduced dairy quite a bit the past couple of weeks but i don't see the huge improvement that i thought i would. is this normal?
2. we take high fat butter oil, which i realize now that i'll have to eliminate as well. has anyone else done this? i'm afraid to lose all the high immunity that we've had since we started it. we do CLO as well.
Why would you need to eliminate butter oil? Is he allergic to that too? It's lactose-free.
The Specific Carbohydrate Diet works pretty well for my 3-y-o. (Not for me
but her case is less severe) Just limit honey and fruit. Also doing CLO, yogurt (no casein issue here) and fats.
It took about 2 months to get rid of her eczema : it was affecting her tummy, chest, arms, shoulders. She has had eczema since she was 3 months-old. First on hands and cheeks, then that cleared up and got it behind her knees. Later it howed up on her torso.
She was e. free for several months between April and now. Now it's coming back because DH is forcing us to eat the SAD way
I try to give enzymes which work pretty well but I guess they are not enough to counter all the junk DH and MIL give her.
Anyway, I digress. Give her some good enzymes like Enzymedica, Thropps or Houston (enzymestuff.com), they will greatly reduce food allergies. Keep giving probiotics, home-made fermented veggies, lacto-fermented drinks, fats, coconut oil. CLO and EPO.
Baking soda or epsom salt baths, coconut oil on the skin...
Hope it helps, give it a few weeks to work, you might see a die-off reaction at first.
