dd eczema still as bad as ever, she went to an allergist on Monday, ready for this? She is allergic to:milk, eggs, peanuts, almonds, potatoes, chocolate, citrus, peas. She can eat: rice, wheat, barley, oats, carrots, bananas, apples chicken lobster and tuna.
I cut out milk, eggs and nuts out of my diet, have seen no improvement. We have started to notice that her eczema looks worse if she goes a few days without a bath. Also, the cream we've been using which seemed to be doing some good, (cetaphil) has almond oil in it. She is eating a lot more now, and it's easier for me now that I know what not to give her. This was all a shock to me, I didn't expect this many allergies, it doesn't run in our families.
I don 't know how long I can continue this restricted diet, it is very difficult, I am considering switching her over to soy milk or formula and cutting back on nursing only a few times a day. Don't think I am horrible, I just can't do this for much longer, I feel like I am hungry all the time!
So, lots of different things going on here, any thoughts, support would be helpful. Feel free to add your updates!
