I haven't seen anything about this. Have you gone completely free of dairy and soy simultaneously for 2 weeks to see if that would help? At least plenty of people have done that without having to worry if it's okay. :)

Dairy, soy & corn free with limited gluten... yes, really. And journeying towards peace. Blogging about both.
Let me guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices...
I used olive oil on my babies' eczema. It's still my go-to for cracking, peeling, dry skin.
I don't know anything about bentonite clay, but I see on wikipedia that it's used as a laxative, which is backed up by bulkherbstore.com, which recommends it for internal cleansing and cautions that you should drink LOTS of water while taking it internally. This information would make me uncomfortable giving it to a 10 month old to ingest.
Some users are reporting success using it for dermatological issues in a bath or as a poultice. I would be more comfortable with that than with ingestion.
Eczema also sometimes responds well to homeopathic remedies.
