Eczema is our problem. I had it, my mom had it, my paternal grandmother had it....dh's father gets it a little, dh and sil have other allergy problems.....definately an allergic family.
It's so great to hear that organics really help, we only buy organic, and don't go out that often, so we're probably more or less OK. I just seeded my organic garden yesterday....
dd is more or less OK if she doesn't eat citrus or stone fruits, poops regularly, and if both of us avoid the nightshade family entirely. We already avoid wheat for the most part since dh is allergic, and don't eat big dairy dinners since he is also allergic to that. If she gets anything she shouldn't, it's a whole body affair culminating in topical steroids for a couple of days. bleah.
It's always nice to hear from someone who is managing their allergies and having wonderful health despite them.
Do you notice your child having a stronger immune system in general, as far as not getting sick very often and all that? None of us really ever get sick, for all kids are supposed to get 6-9 colds/year. I wonder if it's because our immune systems are already hyperactive? I dunno, just a thought....
