Hi,
I want to share with you my experience with my daughter's eczema. My baby developed eczema at 18 months. Before that she didn't have any signs of eczema. I breast feed until she was 18 months old. She was introduced to solid at age of 1, she ate a variety diet including cows diary produces and eggs. Two weeks after I stopped breast feeding she developed eczema in her face. At the beginning I didn't know what it was. After seeing my pediatrician and a dermatologist they told me it looks like atopic eczema by contact. They prescribed her a cortisone cream. Which I put often since they didn't really told me how bad this was for her. Her eczema kept getting worse and worse. I couldn't it get under control. I will apply the cream and one day will look better but eventually we will get to the same point. After seeing different doctors finally one suggested that it was an eczema developed by an allergy. They tested her and she had allergy to dairy and eggs. This doctor told me not to use cortisone creams but instead use Vanicream. Since cortisone creams has second effects that I am not going to discuss here, but which you should learn more about if you are using it in your little one, since it can scare her/him skin for live.
I got my little girl out of dairy and milk but still eventually getting some eczemas in her face. I realize that red coloring was also causing her an allergy. After researching on the Internet and put all the facts together I realized that: my baby didn't have any eczema until I stopped breast feeding. There was something in my milk that was helping her immune system. I started reading articles that pointed out that some kids specially, c-section babies, had low levels of probiotics in their guts affecting their immune system and making them to vulnerable to develop allergies. Babies usually gets them through breast milk and also when born naturally they drink the fluids that contains this healthy bacteria. I started giving her probiotics for babies daily. After a month and a half her face is clean of eczema and now she is not having allergic reactions to milk or eggs. I can't tell you enough how good this worked for her. You should check with your doctor about using probiotics but they are very safe for kids. I am pasting below the articles that help me the most to put all of this together. Also probiotics are link to Help kids with diagnosed with OCD and ADHD.
I hope my experience helps to all the mommies with this problem!!!!
