Horrendous eczema 9 1/2 month baby

Very long story. breast fed baby till 4 months. She is my 3rd child. I breast fed my others for longer but I was so exhausted I just couldn't do it any more. Hind sight bad decision....Started on formula. Just under 6 months started weaning. Dry Skin rash on forehead soon began to appear once food started in system. The cows formula milk was giving her explosive nappies. Switched to soya for about 2 weeks. Poo became formed but dark green, indicating bowel sensitivity. Stopped soya and started baby on homemade concoctions of bone broths coconut milk and lots of avocado smoothies. Bowels really happy and regular, great consistency 2-3 times a day. But skin getting worse. Skin reacting to lots of foods. Carrots being the worst, in fact any orange vegetable. Which for a babies diet is sad, as it's squash, sweet potato, carrots etc. meat and fish also not great. But chicken seems ok I think. She is dairy free, 90 percent gluten free. She does eat eggs but mostly mixed into homemade healthy muffins using rice flour and fruit or veg and rice flour pancakes. Her skin calms then hugely reacts making her look like a burns victim. So red and raw. I don't know what is reacting now. We are having allergy testing tomorrow with doctors. But I don't know if I'll get the answers what I'm looking for there. But at least it's another thing crossed off the list. Then I'll go back and see another kinesiology lady. I love tissue salts and they have always worked with other medical issues. But I'm totally stumped what to use here. It's so red and starting to scale and weep today. So used CALC FLUOR and nat mur today. It stopped the weeping. But then it weeps again during the night. I use coconut oil on the skin. It soothes it as she never ever scratches it. So it doesn't irritate her thankfully. But it's not going away and is getting worse even though I feel like I'm doing healthy options. She is a very happy placid gentle soul but just red raw and scabby. I'm loathed to use steroid creams and antibiotics. I've been so busy focussing on nutrition changes for her that now the bowel is happy, I feel I can work on the next deeper level. Ideally with tissue salts. I'm stumped, frustrated and really sad that I can't work this out and get her better. I'm so emotional about this I'm struggling to see the clear picture. I normally fix health problems really quickly and always naturally. But this one has me baffled. Any advice hugely welcome. Open to any suggestions. Xxx
