I feel your frustration with this one! My dd is 6mths old and she has had eczema since about 2mths of age. I've tried LOTS of different things. I'm on an elimination diet now, no dairy, citrus, wheat,etc. I thought the same thing, "what will I eat?", but there are actually lots of things out there, and most health food stores are more than happy to help you with some shopping or to point you in the direction of an allergy cookbook! I went to the naturopath, and he told me to take evening primrose, and to give my daughter sulphur tablets. I started that about a week and a half ago. One day after I gave her the first tablet, it was gone! The rough patches on her legs, everything, was gone. She went from looking like she had third degree burns on her face, to having soft smooth skin. I kept giving her the sulphurtablets, and last tuesday I got on an airplane to go from OR to Ohio, and the very next day it came back-worse then it's ever been! I'm not sure if it's because my mother failed to tell me there was Miracle Whip(definitly different from my OG diet!) in something we ate that night, or if it's the stress from travelling, or change in environment? I was sooooo excited when I found something that I thought had solved her problem, and then it's back. It can be a very frustrating thing. Does anyone know if I should've stopped giving her the sulphur when it cleard up like that? I called the dr from out here, and he said to double up on the sulphur, I've been doing that for three days now-still really bad! How long does it take if you do eat something that they're allergic to for it to get out of their systems? Sorry I got going with all these questions! Hang in there, I also know someone who's been dealing with this for 5 years and it's definitly frustrating, but you'll find something that works I'm sure of it. When my dd's went away the other day, it made me feel like she have total relief soon enough! I was also curious to know what people have heard of evening primrose oil. I breastfeed and have been taking about 4grms a day. I hadn't had a period since my dd was born and just got one shortly after I started taking that supplement. I wonder if it's increasing estrogen levels or anything like that for my daughter? All I really heard from the dr was that it was good for the skin.
