eczema and cows milkHello,
My 23 month old had eczema at 5 months. I was fully breast feeding, though it was about a month after his 2nd lot of innoculations. He received homeopathic treatment (sorry I don't know what) over the next 4 months and this seemed to control it. I have kept him pretty much dairy free until a couple of weeks ago. He is still breast feeding as his main dairy, but also having a little cows milk and dairy food. His skin is definately getting worse. His torso front and back is not red, but feels rough like sand paper. When he has access to the skin there he immediately scratches, having scratched his neck quite badly. Head and legs seem OK, under arms and inside elbows a little sore. Can't tell difference with heat. Other than this he is a strong, sturdy, healthy boy. I am worried about cutting out all dairy again due to dietary balance.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I had placenta pravia during pregnancy, hospitalised for last 10 weeks due to regular small bleeds, he was born by caesarian 10 days before due date. Healthy 8lb 9oz - slightly jaundiced for about 10 weeks after birth (no intervention necessary) -
Hope that gives enough info to help?
