So, I have heard that cradle cap and eczema can be linked to food allergies.
Here's is my situation:
DS started getting very mild cradle cap on the top of his head and a little on the sides a couple weeks ago(he is 13 weeks old) and his forehead is rough like sandpaper, a little flaky and occassionally red. I do not use soap on him and only bathe maybe 2x/week. I have put Mother's Special Blend on his head and gently exfoliate with a fingernail brush. And it stays clear for a couple of days. I put jojoba and lanolin on his forehead to soften and keep hydrated, but doesn't totally work that well. He is ebf. Could this be allergies? If so, should I try an elimination diet?
Can eczema be hereditary? DH has very dry patches on his face that he treats with some kind of prescription cream that his derm. gave him. DH does not have any food allergies, he is mildly allergic to grass. His sister is allergic to tree nuts. Now, I am starting to wonder if DH has a food allergy or a sensitivity. Any thoughts?
