9 month old EczemaWould so love any help.
My 9 month old daughter's eczema is getting worse. Like screaming & shaking in a chlorinated pool, bad. It's currently on her face by her mouth, all over her legs(especially upper thighs), upper arms lightly, and the worst is in her ankle folds. It comes & goes on her back. Her pediatrician has recommended OTC lotions & baths, which haven't much helped. Homeopathy has already improved her little life (GERD) so much that I'd really love advice. However, I'm not sure where to turn. We've just moved again for my husband's job & are a 4 hr drive to a Homeopath or Naturalist. So I post this in hopes that someone can offer us some advice.
She's thriving in every other area of her life.
She doesn't itch, but is very sensitive to touch and will cry out in pain when inflamed.
Worse in heat (baths).
She's breastfed, and we've induced solids. No peanuts, shellfish, dairy, or soy yet. I've not noticed a pattern in her flair ups.
3rd move since born
Medical Background (not eczema history):
Fractured femur at birth
At 3 months old noticed blood in throw up. Breastfeeding, so was advized to give up all dairy and whey. Blood in spit up 2 more times..
Diagnosed with GERD at almost 5 months. Very cranky & almost inconsolable 1 hr after feedings and constantly spitting up.
Prescribed Ranatadine 1.2ml 2x daily for 2 weeks. Didn't see marked improvement.
Met another mother, who as a Naturalist treated her baby's GERD with Nat Phos 6x & probiotics.
She turned into another baby! She's so happy & no longer throws her body back in pain. Spit up is less too.
Has always gained weight well & exceeded developmental milestones.
Thank you so much for just even reading this. It means more than you'd ever know,
