2 month old with eczemaHi I would like to request your help. I am seeing Dr Leffler here in Canada to monitor my babys health. My child is 3 months on July 20th. He developed eczema when he turned 5 weeks. The onset was very sudden and severe. He had red bubbly swollen skin only on his face (the whole area even eye lids). The outbreak occured after a visit to the vets to get my dogs nails trimmed. His father has allergies to many things including animals my younger sister has asthma and younger brother had eczema. I took my child to Dr Leffler who gave him a dose of Dulc. 200 to be mixed in 2 oz of water and given a teaspoon 3x a day. This remedy worked for a week before the rash returned more on his right cheek than left. He gave the remedy again with no reaction good or bad. The rash continued onto his left cheek and then onto his right inner elbow region. My child has a little bit of craddle cap on the top of his head, mostly looking like flakes of skin. His cheeks look bubbly, swollen, scabbed over, dry, don't bleed, have yellow crusties from time to time, are itchy, red. I then took him back to the doctor who treated him for eczema and the digestive spit ups through the nose with Lycopodium 200 in water. Is there anything you could suggest?
I was thinking sulphur?
He was delivered natuarlly with the use of gas and air.
His heartrate did not alter during birth
He appeared somewhat stuck as I pushed for 2 hours before he delivered with a cone off to the side of his head shape.
He is very alert, curious.
He does not spit up often, when he does it comes out of his nose
He does not like sleeping flat on his back (I think he's scared of nose spitting)
He likes to be warm, likes to wear little, likes outdoors the best
He often mostly in the evening or early morning has a stuffy nose
he sneezes 10 x approx. per day
he seems to be trying to burp or catching his breath or is winded mostly in evening or morning
he wakes gasping like someone is trying to drown him

My mom is english, my dad is from barbados, The baby's father is Jamacian, my child is black
He sleeps in his swing in the night the crib on his right side in the day
He wakes suddenly as if drowning or terrified

What is his complexion and weight?
Does he takes water in small quanities or likes very cold water?
