Eczema and lactose intolerance

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

My daughter has eczema and after rubbing everything you can possibly imagine on her skin to treat it and avoiding all perfumes and dyes in soaps and lotions with no luck I have come to the conclusion that it must be an internal problem that is presenting itself on her skin. I have read there could be a link between dairy products and skin issues, so my questions are 1) what are some symptoms you or your children have experienced AND 2)what do eat if you can't eat dairy? My daughter's number one snack is cheese and I realized it is a part of all of her favorite, ice cream, lasagna, quesadillas, enchiladas, etc... Please help!

My daughter had horrible eczema and baby acne when

she was born I had tried everything to help her. Finally

a friend of mine told me about Weleda it's a

baby line from Sweden you can get it at natural

food stores or organic stores. Look it up on the internet it's a miracle cream no word of a lie! :) it cleared her skin within 4 days! My daughter is still

on a lactose free formula so I'm not sure about food. I do know you can buy lactose free cheeses :)

1 product I have found that works for my son who has both eczema & lactose intolerant is a lactose free cheese. It is called Tierra De Queso & I can usually find it in a Wal Mart & I usually stock up on it cause I go thru it fast. I have just switched over to cooking with Silk, & that cheese (mentioned above) because I hate making 2 different concepts to the same meal!

My son had a rash all over him that started at 2 weeks. I found out that he was allergic to milk, which I was drinking a lot of. We now know that he is allergic to wheat, eggs, soy and peanuts. He also has eczema, which is so frustrating, always itching especially at night.
I tried Rice milk, Almond milk and Soy milk. It seems that the soy milk is not causing and issue for him. He is not directly ingesting any of them. I like rice milk but it does not taste so good in coffee or tea, lol. His diet is mainly rice, veggies and fruits and he is doing pretty well. He is allergic to animals as well so I don't know if the carpeting is causing the eczema flare ups. It is extremely frustrating, did I mention that already? I hope you can narrow it down and your baby will find relief soon.
