DD WILL NOT stop scratching herself. I know she has excema bad. We elimatated the things she came back allergic to on the blood test in her diet, and got rid of the cat. This weekend she was almost entirely BF (ANd I modified my diet for her).
But Saturday night, last night, and both days she has been ripping at her skin worse than normal. It takes 2 of us to change her diaper because one has to hold down her hands so she won't cause herself to bleed.
Last night she kept waking me up because she was clawing at her arms in her sleep (arms and ankles are a favorite spot). The more she itched, the worse it got. I finally put gloves on her and fastened them with diaper pins at about 5 am. And I put anti itch cream on the spots.
The soonest we can get into the allergist is Dec 6th.
We have tried everything, it is making me sick to my stomach. My mother says I was the same way as a child. We have done only 1 or 2 baths a week, tried diffrent creams. We are to the point where aquifer is the only thing that sooths it aside from the cortazone. So we put that on 3 times a day to keep it at bay.
I am just so frustrated.
