<div>Apologize for the long post - any help is greatly appreciated.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>A bit of history about my 21 month old DS -</div>
<div> </div>
<div>=>  has suffered from severe eczema from when he was a month old. I went on a hypo-allergenic diet starting 3 months and noticed barely any improvement. Tried Homeopathy for 6 months with no improvement infact made it so severe (thot that it's healing crisis) but it never improved.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>=> At 8 months , we discovered he had multiple food allergies (milk, wheat, soy, eggs, nuts, lentils, coconut, sesame, mustard, also rice and corn to a lesser degree) ) and weaned him off slowly from breastmilk to Neocate. At 11 months he was completely weaned from breastmilk to Neocate but the rash never cleared up. We had to use Triamcinolone twice a day and Zyrtec/Atarax twice a day until 15 months</div>
<div> </div>
<div>=>  we went to India (humid climate) for 3 months, skin improved considerably but still reacted to allergic foods the same way.  We realized even on a diet with just Neocate his rash never went away and realized he could be allergic to Neocate itself (although our allergist kept denying it whenever we suggested it in the past) So, we slowly stopped Neocate and some of the characteristic blister like rash on his lower legs went away.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>=> While in India tried Ayurveda which has helped a little with itching and helped us avoid antibiotics for cold/fever etc but still DS has severe rash and we are unable to introduce any new foods. We tried Elecare and it causes the same type of rash as Neocate. We are at a loss for a milk substitute.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>He doesn't eat much now except rice and veggies and Nutritionist says we need to find a formula fast even if he starts some meat like lamb.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>I read in a forum that Alimentum RTF would work where elemental formulas fail as it is corn free. I've also read the DHA/ARA could be a problem as well.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>Does anyone have any input on Alimentum and if helped improve eczema while Neocate/Elecare failed?</div>
<div> </div>
<div>Also, any input on NAET (acupressue/acupuncture) and it's effect on infant/toddler eczema?</div>
<div> </div>
<div>HELP please....</div>
