Hi, joining in
My DD (4.5 mos) has had thrush for 2.5 months. I cut out all milk(did eat kefir yogurt and cheese and butter), wheat and sugar for about a month/six weeks and just started eating something off the 'no' list 1x/day the last week since her mouth has looked better, still not perfectly clear. *sigh*
I noticed today that she's got an area around her fontanel with what looks like small yellow scabs. She has long hair, and it's thickest there, so I think she's had it at least for a week, but I hadn't seen it.
About 2 weeks ago, I noticed behind her ears was a a little crusty, but thought that was related to neck cheese. That cleared up with Boudreaux's Butt Paste. She's been fussier too. She does not crying for long periods, well, about an hour some days, and she's waking up crying, and she's not a crier unless she needs something.
She gets very sweaty when she sleeps, but that's more on her temples and back, so that doesn't aggravate it so far as I know. As for baths, I bathe her 2x/week and after reading an article in a mag at library (Alternative Health/natural, I think, recent issue) about sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate causing early puberty, I've quit using all the baby soaps and have been using Kirk's Castille Bar. Her hair is so thick in that area that I am just not sure about what to try putting on it or just put stuff on and who cares if it washes out.
I wasn't careful how I added food stuff back in (got fed up with doing it
), so no idea what in particular caused it, or even how long she's had it. I feel terrible that I didn't notice. I have been giving her Primadophilus since the beginning of August. And I looove milk, so I have been drinking soy milk instead of cow's, but I don't think that bothered her.
I haven't read all the posts, but am subbing. I'm just frustrated and discouraged because I think we've got the thrush licked and then her mouth gets white patches on her cheeks again. And then I had plugged ducts, which thankfully cleared us quickly, but I'm so tired of always fighting something, YKWIM?
Sorry this got so long, just wanted to give you a little background. I have no idea where to start with what to do to deal with this. Just treating the thrush and avoiding eating everything (it seemed like) was exhausting. Now I eat something and it tastes funny (and not really good) to me. Did anyone else notice this with their elimination diets?
