Please tell me its gonna get better
We started SCD almost 2 weeks ago with our DS. So far the only food we "think" he tolerates is cauliflower, green beans and bananas. I say think because how do you tell a reaction to the food from die off?
He can't digest carrots, walnut flour or boiled raisins(they showed up in his BM's) and he had a very itchy reaction to DCCC.
His reaction to the boiled raisins was interesting. He was up itchy all night, then he peed so much the next day he leaked 3 times and then finally the next day he pooped them out. Was this a die off reaction?
He doesn't like the meat anymore. He will sit and chew and chew the chicken and then won't swallow it. He keeps saying get me something I like.
He has eaten so much squish(cauliflower) at this point that his breath smells sulfer(y).
He is uncharacteristically moody and difficult(this started a couple of months ago). He has always been the happiest, most active child. Now everything is a struggle. Some days we can't stand to even be around him. Which really hurts because he is 3. This is supposed to be the fun time. We walk around on eggshells around him. Something can be perfectly fine one minute and then the next he is throwing a fit.
Should I be expecting any improvement in the eczema yet? It is awful. His legs from top to bottom are covered. The tops of his feet are raw, cracked, flaky and just so sore and horrible looking. His arms and hands. His belly itches and it has never been on his belly. He is getting spots behind his ears again and they have broken out for more than a year. He is miserable
Is the fact that it is moving around a good sign? Is there light at the end of this tunnel?
He doesn't sleep more than 2 or 3 hours at a time. He has maybe slept all night 5 times in his life but at least we were getting 4 and 5 hour stretches at a time. Being tired all the time makes it so much harder to deal with for all of us.
Am I right in thinking that if his eczema were a food allergy related thing then since he has been on such a restricted diet for two weeks shouldn't it be improving? Or does die off interfere with this?
How long can he continue on this restricted diet and be healthy?
He is taking kirkman everyday vit. twice per day and carlson's clo 1/4 teaspoon twice per day.
How do you keep a child who cant tolerate eggs, nuts and fruit full on SCD?
What kind of testing is suggested for metal toxicity(he was vaxinated) vit/min deficiency, bacteria, etc?
So much I would do over if I could.....He was fed soy formula(I tried to BF but my milk never came in) and he was vaxinated. one month after his round of 4 month shots he got eczema. I have had it since a teen but only a very mild case. He is highly allergic to eggs and modertely allergic to a host of other things....just a little of his background.
