Hi Therese's mama! I have been struggling with my little one having eczema for the past 4 months and it is still a puzzle to me. I have eliminated dairy, sugar, chocolate, gluten, peanuts, bananas, citrus fruit and, just recently eggs. She had not had a flare up for two months and had one when we went to a "Hibachi grill/sushi" restaurant and all she ate was some rice and miso soup. I suspected soy, so I eliminated that two weeks ago. Well, she had another flare up several nights ago and I now trying to figure this out! It is frustrating! She has her third tooth coming in (top left), so maybe there is a correlation...it is a mystery. We are both doing a yeast cleanse right now due to her reoccurent diaper rash, so I'm wondering if she is just excreting toxins....this is what traditional chinese medicine practioners say anyhow. Well, I put toasted sesame oil on her whole body two times a day, which seems to help moisturize it well. Sometimes I'll try coconut oil. We avoid baths, try to have her shower with us and just do a rinse off with water...no soaps. I'll wash her head with Olive Oil Kiss My Face soap, but not every day. I wish there was an ongoing thread for people struggling with their little one's eczema and the strategies that work for them. I thought we had it mostly under control, but BOOM....then it flares back and I'm really playing a guessing game. I'm still nursing, so I have guilt issues that I'm causing her skin problems. She eats rice, beans, veggies, millet, quinoa, buckwheat, lentils, coconut milk, coconut oil, olive oil, cod liver oil, and that's about it! It is quite frustrating to figure out what to eat every day! Good luck and keep in touch....I'd love to hear if you figure it out.
