I'm reading through eczema threads and really wondering what else I can do for my 5 mo DD who is EBF and not vaxed.
I eliminated all
grains, dairy and eggs when I was pregnant due to feeling sick after eating them and have maintained that (for the most part) since her birth. I don't eat soy. I tried some teff recently, but her poops turned green so... no more teff. I'm now cutting out chocolate, nuts, apples and potatoes (foods I was eating more of). So...that leaves me eating fruits that are not apples, all vegs but white potatoes, coconut oil, milk and flakes for some extra fats, flax seeds, cod liver oil, fish and meats. I drink water and an herbal infusion daily that I make - contains nettle, red raspberry leaf, chamomile, elderberries, rosehips.
I'm adding extra CLO and ground flax meal to my diet. I also take Vit D and probiotics. Her only supplement is my milk.
We use soap nuts (not a nut a fruit) for laundry. She is cloth diapered and doesn't have eczema in the diaper area so I don't suspect the soap nuts are a cause.
I put apricot oil on her at least twice a day. Have experiemented with lanolin and shea butter (but concerned about that because its a nut). Also have put some calendula ointment on some patches (has petroluem though).
If anything it seems her skin is getting worse. What else can I do?
I appreciate any help because I know going to a ped will result in the suggestion to get some hydrocortisone cream - which I feel like doing!! (but am still wanting another way
